Gaming News Niantic (Pokémon Go) aims to revive the Tamagotchi craze on mobile with Peridot, its new game
It’s been almost ten years since Niantic made augmented reality one of its biggest specialties. A level of skill that has allowed the studios to work on one of the most popular mobile games of recent years: Pokémon Go. Far from being satisfied with a single project, Niantic continues to develop its catalog of games and, developing after Harry Potter and Pikmin Bloom , the studio returns with an original license called Peridot.

New pocket creatures, Pikachu and his gang set aside
For anyone who grew up in the 1990s, the word “Tamagotchi” must evoke a flood of memories that quickly makes you nostalgic for a few minutes. If this generation could have thought that nothing like this could have seen the light of day, then they were very ill-informed about Niantic’s ambitions on the subject. The augmented reality specialist certainly made a name for itself with Pokémon Go, but despite some pitfalls such as the imminent closure of Harry Potter: Wizards Unite, the studio has been looking to bounce back with many projects including Pikmin Bloom and more recently Peridot.
It is this new project that catches our attention today, since it marks a new turning point for Niantic, which is no longer content to adapt new, well-known licenses, but returns to the front of the stage with an original franchise as before penetrationthe first game from the studio of its time. Inspired by their work on the famous pocket creatures, the Niantic teams have created a new experience that will challenge you to take care of a bunch of cute little creatures from your phone and wherever you want!
The perfect mix of Tamagotchi and Pokémon Go?
Over time, mobile gamers will no longer just live with their pets, but with the peridot. After spending thousands of years in a deep sleep, this magical species has awakened in the middle of the real world to find sanctuary in our smartphones. Behind this tribute and this evolution of the Tamagotchi concept we find a game much more complete than a simple augmented reality application in which you have to take care of the creatures by entertaining them, feeding them and training them.
Peridot is the story of fantasy made reality. Where your adventure can run wild with an amazing new friend who will always be by your side and limitless possibilities await at every turn.

In particular, the game is based on the same fundamentals as Pokemon Go Encourage roaming around and interacting with the real world, but that’s not all. In the title full of unique creatures, it will be possible to crossbreed each species to bring forth new ones that have their own characteristics and DNA ! Better yet, Peridot caters to all player profiles: teams have made it a point to reward both regular and casual players. For example, no matter how many times you play, your peridot will never die, unlike its Tamagotchi ancestor where you had to pay attention to the grain.
No release date has been announced at the moment. However, Niantic plans to launch the game in “selected markets” as early as this month and continue to expand into regions that can benefit from the title’s soft launch.
