The head of Niantic, the company that makes both games, John Hanke, emphasizes that players of the NBA game will need only a mobile phone, and no costly VR equipment or goggles, just as Pokemon Go players do.

He’s marketing this cross-genre game as a real-world metaverse, to set it apart from Microsoft’s and others’ simulated environments, in which players play while wearing face masks at home.

“I think it’s important to support what we do in the real world as human beings, like going out to the restaurant, meeting our friends, and not staying at home,” he told AFP in an interview.

“Putting on a VR headset by yourself, to me, it’s a very lonely and scary future. I hope that humanity doesn’t go in that direction.”

Players in NBA All-World, out this week in France and tomorrow everywhere else, can take the form of their favorite NBA great and engage in street basketball with strangers.

According to Hanke, mobile phones are ideal for playing games due to their social nature.

“It is mobile, low cost, and almost everybody has one,” he said.

Niantic is banking on microtransactions, in which players pay a tiny amount for in-game advantages like increased movement speed or the ability to outfit their in-game personas with recognizable sneakers from companies like Adidas and Puma.

Hanke acknowledges that Niantic’s ability to attract top-tier business partners is in large part due to the success of Pokemon Go.
