If you want to know more about Pokemon GO, you may not have to wait that much longer as the game will be displayed this March at GDC 2016. The developer plans to showcase more of the game’s gameplay and talk about the development for it.

On the official GDC website, CEO of Niantic Inc, John Hanke, is holding a session at the event to talk more about Pokemon GO as well as Real World Gaming. The website posted more specific details on the presentation.

It posted:Over the last three years, Niantic, Inc. has been defining the genre of Real World gaming, using smartphones and tablets to connect the digital world to the physical world. Niantic’s newest game, Pokemon GO, ups the challenge of real world gaming design, taking a beloved franchise and setting its hundreds of brightly-colored monsters loose across the globe, adding a new Bluetooth wearable device created by Nintendo to the mix. Join Niantic founder and CEO John Hanke as he discusses how the company has developed a unique vision for delivering a mobile Pokemon experience that gets would-be trainers into the outdoors.”

Takeaway: Attendees will get a first-hand, in-depth look at how players are interacting and exploring the world with one another through Pokemon GO, the collaborative approach to design and development for the game and the next evolution of augmented reality and real-world mobile gameplay experiences.

There is still no release date or window for Pokemon GO, but it is one of the most highly anticipated titles to be out this year. The first reveal trailer has over 21 million views on YouTube which is very high for a video game as even some movie trailers don’t get that many views.
