The wait is finally coming to a close. Nintendo used its E3 press conference to announce the month of release of their highly anticipated new AR game based on the popular monster collection universe.

Starting in July players will be able to begin catching, training, and battling pokémon in the real world. Trading of the monsters will not be available at launch, but it is expected to follow sometime after, along with an unspecified compatibility with the new Pokémon Sun and Moon games for Nintendo’s handheld systems.

In Pokémon Go players will be able to explore their surroundings for pokémon. When one appears, the player’s phone will vibrate alerting them of its presence.

Players can then use pokéballs to catch the monsters. Game play differs from the established mechanics of turned based battles in previous games and will factor stats such as steps walked and pokémon caught to level up and evolve.
