An 'Ingress' anime series is coming to Netflix

It was founded in 2010, shipped a small location-based game in Field Trip two years later that grew into the framework of Ingress, a more popular augmented reality app in 2013, and of course, Pokemon Go in 2016. "Ingress: The Animation" is a collaborative effort between Crafter, an animation studio, art director Takeshi Honda (Neon Genesis Evangelion) and Fuji TV. Both the anime series and Ingress Prime are expected to debut in October.

Niantic head John Hanke announced that an Ingress animated series will be coming soon to Netflix.

"The anime peers into the Ingress universe and allows viewers to see a part of that universe that is uniquely expressed", Hanke told Variety. Sarah and Makoto's story will play out against the backdrop of that conflict while they attempt to evade Jack, a new antagonist who has his own agenda. As hinted before, Ingress Prime is supposed to reflect the progress made through Pokémon Go, including more accessible gameplay and a gentler introduction to the experience.
