Before Pokemon Go, there was Ingress. The location-based mobile game is now coming to the big screen (your TV) with its own animated movie on Netflix.

Ingress: The Animation is developed by Fuji TV and Crafter for a global distribution on Netflix's Online streaming service this Autumn. Taking place in a sci-fi setting, Ingress is divided into two factions, the Resistance and the Enlighted. Each team is fighting over control of in-game objects called portals in real-world locations. The lore is that these portals leak a rare form of matter.

In the mobile game, this fiction is entirely optional. In the animation, it's all lore. The movie will dive into the conflicts present in this universe while introducing new characters and stories to fuel it.

This will eventually lead into crossover content between the animation and the game, as well as a game known as Ingress Prime. Prime is an acting sequel to the game, with reworked features and mechanics based on the knowledge gained from Ingress and Pokemon Go. Ingress Prime is due out in October.

Niantic boss John Hanke spoke about these changes:

"We're trying to take those lessons and make Ingress more accessible. Ingress is a deliberately obscure game. We want to make sure people can make their way through that and get to the actual gameplay. We want to make that smoother for Ingress Prime."


Now all we need is a Pokemon Go movie.
