    New Neopets Mobile Game Revealed

    JellyNeo has posted about this:

    We've received some very exciting, exclusive information on a brand new, unreleased mobile game for Neopets that has been in development for the past few months! This is the first mobile development since Ghoul Catchers was released back in early 2015.


    The new mobile app, titled Neopets GO: Balthazar's Revenge, is an AR (augmented reality) game that allows you to join Balthazar's Faerie Bottling Inc. and walk around in real life capturing faeries for Balthazar. It appears to be inspired by the popular game, Pokťmon GO.

    App Store Description
    Read more details in the app store description provided to us below:

    Ever since Faerieland crashed, Balthazar's been getting more angry about those pesky Faeries living next door -- and now he's finally snapped and is taking his Faerie catching business global! Balthazar's Faerie Bottling, Inc (BOTT) is now hiring! Help Balthazar bottle those Faeries and make the skies of Neopia clear again. Maybe he'll even reward you for the trouble!

    Features:

    PLAY AS A NEOPET
    Select your favourite Neopet species and go to work for Balthazar's Faerie Bottling, Inc!

    EXPLORE NEOPIA
    Travel across whimsical Neopets-themed maps while you search for those pesky Faeries!

    MULTIPLE FAERIE TYPES
    Capture Faeries from each of the six main elements, along with some rarer Faeries like the Tooth Faerie or Battle Faerie. Beware! Some Faeries are stronger than others, and will need special bottles to contain their magic!

    VISIT BOTTSTOPS
    Balthazar's set up offices of his company, Balthazar's Faerie Bottling, Inc, all over Neopia! Visit them to refill your bottle supplies after a long day capturing Faeries!

    USE PETPETS
    No Faerie can resist the sound of a Petpet! Use them to lure more Faeries to your location! You can get Petpets at special Petpet Trees littered throughout Neopia -- but act fast! Other players will be looking to get those Petpets at the same time!

    JOIN TEAMS
    Nothing helps productivity like a little competition! Join one of the departments within Balthazar's Bottling Company and compete with each other! The team that captures the most Faeries each month wins a special prize from Balthazar himself!

    EARN REWARDS
    Balthazar's as generous as he is menacing! Help him capture Faeries, and earn virtual rewards to use on Neopets.com! Just head over to your nearest BOTTstop and exchange them!
    In-App Screenshots
    We've also been provided with some screenshots of what the game will look like (click to enlarge):


    Platforms
    The app is being developed for both iOS and Android.

    Beta Testing/Release Date
    We've also been told that the beta test of the app will begin within the next couple of weeks. If you're interested in testing the new app, more information will be posted on Neopets when it's ready--and we'll make sure to post when it's up and available, so check back often!

    Excited about this new game? We definitely are! Let us know what you think in the comments and any ideas you have for the app so that we can pass them along.
    Your thoughts?

    Probably April Fools; too close to Pokemon Go (layout wise) to avoid copyright issues, one would assume. :^(

    If this is their April Fool's prank... that's just sad. It's not funny, it's not a prank, it's not all fun and games.
    It just gets the hopes of people up and lets them down. It hurts their image even more, if anything. They won't put in the time to fix things on their site, but they'll put in this effort to make a stupid April Fool's "prank" that makes it look like they're improving the site but not really lmao.

    not gonna lie id be pretty disappointed if this was an elaborate prank.
    on the other hand it would be nice if a mobile platform for neo was still in theory a work in progress.
    if it's jn well, i'll just continue not visiting their site ha.

    ^ Ohh, you're probably right. I thought it was from Neopets; I didn't see that it was from JN saying they found this exclusive information about a Neopet's app.

    Then it's not nearly as bad as a joke, but meh...
