Pokémon GO dev Niantic Labs highlights power of location-based games as Ingress First Saturdays hits 100 cities

Niantic Labs, the San Francisco-based developer behind the upcoming Pokémon GO, have announced its Ingress First Saturday event, to take place on November 7th.

The event, which will take place in over 100 cities across the world and held once a month from November 7 onwards, is designed for first time players of ARG Ingress.

It will allow them to meet up with fellow players, play together co-operatively and competitively, and learn tricks from experienced Ingress players.

Get involved

With 13 million downloads of the game across iOS and Android, the events should receive a good turnout.

If they do, then it paves the way for similar events for Pokémon GO, a game that Nintendo and The Pokémon Company have both invested a lot into recently.
