Peridot Will Allow Players to Raise Virtual Pets and Interact With Them in AR

The game is being created by the developer of Pokemon Go.

Niantic, the company behind Pokemon Go and Pikmin Bloom, revealed its next mobile game: Peridot.

Peridot is a pet simulation game that will allow players to take care of fantasy creatures called Peridots (or Dots). Players will be able to interact with their pets through augmented reality (AR), which will make it look like the virtual pets are in the real-world in front of them.

In Peridot, players will be able to go on walks with their Dots, take care of their Dots’ needs, collect “hidden treasures,” and more. Players will also be able to breed Peridots.

Niantic shared some details about Peridot in a news post on the Peridot website:

“After thousands of years of slumber, Peridots (or Dots for short) are waking to a world vastly different from the one in which they used to roam, and they’ll need our help to protect them from extinction.

You’ll foster your own Peridots as you embark on this experience. These are creatures who feel so real, you’ll love every moment raising them from birth to adulthood. While you explore the world together, you’ll get to learn more about your cute new friends, develop a bond as you nurture and play with them, and work with other players to diversify their species.”

Niantic said Peridot “will be entering a soft launch testing phase in select markets soon.” Players can enter their email address on the game’s website to receive updates about the game and be notified when it launches.
