Every Tuesday we have our guy Jeremy Duff from Gamingnexus.com in studio for our video game segment called "Now Playing" brought to you by Mountain Dew Kickstart.
On today's edition of "Now Loading", Jeremy filled us in on the special Halloween theme event Niantic is doing for Pokemon Go. From October 26 to November 1, players will get double candies for catching and transferring Pokemon, as well as get 4x the candies for walking around with your buddy.
In addition to that, the frequency of ghost and psychic type Pokemon will increase and spawn more regularly.
With the hype for Pokemon Go dropping from close to 50 million in July, to around 30 million still playing currently, Niantic is hoping that this first of many events will begin to increase the number of players again.
You can catch Jeremy Duff with us every Tuesday morning at 6:30am or check out gamingnexus.com
