CD PROJEKT studio Spokko Games has lifted the lid on The Witcher: Monster Slayer, a smartphone Augmented Reality title which looks set to follow in the footsteps of Pokémon GO.

Set in the same world as the popular line of video game action RPGs – which, in turn, as based on the books written by Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski – The Witcher: Monster Slayer takes place "long before the time of Geralt of Rivia" and "challenges you to become an elite monster hunter." You'll be able to "explore once-familiar locations now infested with dangerous beasts" and gather trophies from fallen foes.

This isn't the first game to try and capture some of Pokémon GO's magic, and it remains to be seen if The Witcher series has the appeal to help this smartphone title match Niantic's world-beating AR adventure.
