There is no question that Pokemon Go is among the most successful apps to hit the iOS App Store and Android Play Store. Because of the sheer volume of people who installed the app on their device, the game has since become a household name. Due to its immense success, it’s no surprise why Nintendo has decided to expand the franchise via a mobile audience by releasing yet another app called Pokeland.
Pokeland is a game with a concept fused from Pokemon Go and Rumble edition. Through the game, you can let miniature Pocket Monsters fight against each other in a duel. And when you’re done fighting, you can collect and train plenty of other creatures.
This isn’t the only expansion Nintendo has released following Pokemon Go’s success. As a matter of fact, they have also released two other titles, Pokemon Duel and Pokemon: Magikarp Jump. Pokeland iOS app is the fourth title to be released by the game developer and is expected to be released on iOS and Android devices. In order to play the game, an active internet connection is required, along with logging into a Nintendo account.
As of this writing, the game developer has rolled out an Android-only alpha test limited to the first 10,000 people who sign up for the game. Throughout the testing, players will have access to a total of 134 Pocket Monsters, 52 stages, 15 levels, and only 6 islands. Sadly, they won’t be given an option to transfer the player data they have accumulated from the alpha test once the app has officially been launched. Testing is said to run until June 9 in Japan.
There is currently no word whether or not Nintendo intends to release Pokeland iOS app internationally.
