Niantic announces Pokemon GO limited-time holiday item packs
Having launched two hugely successful titles this year, Pokemon GO and Super Mario Run, Nintendo is one of the biggest winners in the mobile game market for 2016.
We might argue that the former is not developed by its studio, but Nintendo still gets a nice share of the game's revenues. The company behind Pokemon GO, Niantic has been updated the game with controversial features and balance adjustments, but overall it did a good job keeping the players interested in the game's content.
The last update of the year for Niantic's Pokemon GO adds a couple of item packs, which will be available for a limited time to those playing the game during holidays.
These limited-time holiday item packs are available through the in-game shop at a discounted rate beginning the morning of December 25 through the afternoon of December 30 (PST). They come in different categories: Special, Great, and Ultra Boxes.
The packs contains Incubators, Incense, Great Balls, and Ultra Balls. In addition, the developer announced that starting the afternoon of December 30 through the afternoon of January 3 (PST), it will release Bronze, Silver, and Gold Boxes.
These boxes include the following items, not necessarily in this order: Incense, Lure Modules, Lucky Eggs, Poke Balls, and Great Balls. If you're still playing Pokemon GO, we wish you happy Pokemon hunting during holidays!
