The creators of Pokémon are back with another app that is sure to be a hit amongst fans. The game-makers will soon be launching a new sleep app that “turns sleeping into entertainment.”
Pokémon Sleep is intended to track people’s sleep patterns while they saw logs with the newly-announced Nintendo Pokémon Go Plus Plus device. The new device won’t be released until next year, but the Pokémon Company promises that the app “brings a gameplay experience unlike any other.”
The company didn’t share many details about how the app will work during its press conference but says that gameplay will rely on how much time players spend sleeping and when they wake up. “After walking, we decided to focus on the act of sleeping,” CEO Tsunekazu Ishihara said at the conference.
“Everyone spends a large part of their life sleeping, and turning that into entertainment is our next challenge at Pokémon.”
The upcoming sleep app wasn’t the only Pokémon experience that’s coming. Pokémon Masters, a new mobile game, is also slated to release this month. A cloud-based app is also on the horizon for fans. Allowing them to collect their Pokemon characters across many different platforms.
