Making a splash

The Pokémon Company has revealed that another Pokémon-themed smartphone title is in development, and this time the long-suffering Magikarp is the main focus.

Splash! Magikarp (known in Japan as Haneru! Koiking) will be coming to iOS and Android devices this spring 2017, with Select Button handling development duties.

Details are thin on the ground, but the game's teaser site offers a brief synopsis. Magikarp-sized holes have begun appearing in an otherwise peaceful town, and a full-scale investigation is underway to discover the cause.

While it doesn't sound like it will have the epic scale of Pokémon GO, this could be an interesting way to pass the time when it launches. Let us know if you're interested in what you've seen so far.
