Pokemon GO is a no-go at GDC 2016

Pokemon fans, and gamers in general, waiting to see a glimpse of a Pokemon adventure carried out in the real world will have to wait a bit longer. Niantic, the former Google subsidiary that is taking on the monumental task of bringing Pokemon GO to life has just confirmed that they are, indeed, not showing up at GDC 2016 this month.

Nintendo’s first mobile game isn’t the NES you were wishing for

The folks at Nintendo have finally given in to the dark side, creating a mobile app/game for iOS and Android devices. This game does not feature Mario, nor is it about any sort of Zelda-type adventure. It does not allow you to play Starfox, nor will you be jumping around in Donkey Kong country.
