It would seem that ridiculous Magikarp song that the Pokemon Company released a week ago was not without merit. Splash! Magikarp is hitting smartphones in Japan tomorrow, with a North American release sure to follow soon. The game sees trainers in a small town, known as Hop Town, that desperately loves Magikarp, attempt to train them and compete to see whose Magikarp can splash the highest.
Players will encounter other various Pokemon, as well as new and interesting looking Magikarp, such as Koi Magikarp. Players will also earn rewards for high splashes, and events that could help earn them decorations for their home screen pond, where their Magikarp lives. Splash! Magikarp hits iPhone and Android on May 23.
