'Splash Magikarp' A New Pokemon Game Coming To Android & Iphone
Following the release of "Pokemon Go" and "Pokemon Duel", an all new smartphone game announced by the Pokemon Company is coming soon. The game is entitled as Hanero! Koiking! in Japan. In English, it is "Splash Magikarp."
It can be remembered that Pokemon Go garnered over $1 billion in revenue since its release for the first seven months on the mobile app stores. Because the game has caught players' attention, it then became an all time favorite of most smartphone users.
On the other hand, Pokemon Duel has also been released this year. So it isn't a wonder when a developer of a game will continue creating more Pokemon games.
