Not long after its announcement, Niantic’s pet augmented reality game was released in its first country!

For anyone that missed the announcement for Niantic’s new game Peridot, you can watch the announcement teaser below!

Peridot is available now in Malaysia for both Android and iOS devices for the beta. There hasn’t been news on whether or not they will do a wipe after testing.

The game promises to be a real-world adventure pet game, where players will raise pets similar to a Tamagotchi.

The pet will be able to interact with the real world, where you can take them on walks, and so much more!

There will also be a range of unique pets and animal types for those into collecting! If you’re interested in the game, you can sign up for testing here.

Niantic’s other upcoming augmented reality game, Transformers: Heavy Metal has recently been released in Malaysia too. You can read all about it here!

Hopefully, the game will start rolling out to other countries soon. The game looks extremely promising, especially for those wanting a more Pet-like aspect from Pokémon Go.
