Pokemon GO developer Niantic has announced that their first AR mobile game Ingress will be getting its very own anime series for Netflix.
According to Niantic CEO John Hanke, Netflix is already working with Fuji TV, a Japanese-based network to broadcast the anime adaptation of Ingress which has a title of Ingress: The Animation. The anime will be surrounding three characters – Makoto, Sarah, and Jack.
According to Hanke, the anime will serve to introduce Ingress Prime to its viewers, which is a sequel of the game. For those who are not familiar with the game, you can try playing it on your mobile which is available on both iOS and Android devices.
This is the first time for Niantic to have an anime adaptation of their mobile game. Although we already have the idea how Ingress works on mobile, it’s still exciting to see it in action on anime.
