Niantic definitely hit the big money with Pokemon Go, but what was the developer up to before that? They originally worked on a similar smartphone game called Ingress, which is now getting its very own Netflix adaptation.
As originally reported by Variety, Netflix is working in partnership with Fuji TV, to air the Ingress adaptation later this year in October. Ingress was originally launched by Niantic back in 2012, and was somewhat overshadowed when the developer released Pokemon Go.
The upcoming Ingress anime will focus on three characters: police officer Makoto, mysterious agent Jack, and Sarah, who can view different aspects of space and time. Ingress is a supernatural game, with energy leaking through into our world via portals, which you'd have to visit in the real world.
Ingress will be far from the first original anime that Netflix has aired. Aggretsuko was released earlier this year to critical acclaim, and Castlevania's second season is set to debut on Netflix this October.
