1. Pokémon GO
Pokémon has seen countless incarnations, with thousands of fans over the years still demanding more! 2016 will see the release of Pokémon GO for iOS and Android. Pokémon GO will use your GPS location in a similar way to Ingress, determining the area of the world that you are in by your real life coordinates.
Transforming Pokémon into an alternate reality game is sure to bring avid fans many more hours of fun, with Pokémon GO even set to launch with a separate Blue-tooth enabled accessary named Pokémon GO Plus.
This allows users to continue their Poké-progress without taking their smartphones out. Pokémon GO may bring new life to the trading and battling of virtual monsters, but this time in your own neighborhood and around the world.

Nintendo is rather quiet regarding what will be made available in game, however knowing Nintendo, Miitomo is most likely going to be a unique addition to the mobile gaming market. They did however make public that they plan to release a total of five smart device applications by the end of March 2017, it will be interesting to see what they bring to mobile computing.
Tumblestone is a highly anticipated, competitive multiplayer match-3 game. Local player with bots is supported, as is local multiplayer, story mode, online multiplayer and arcade modes. A leader-board and hundreds of challenges are available, as well as extensive character customization.
