'Pokemon GO' Reaches New Record As Fastest Mobile Game With 10 Million Downloads In 7 Days; Bosnian Players Warned Of Possible Landmines
"Pokemon GO" is the perfect template of how Augmented Reality tech should be done. It most certainly paved the way for games looking to use such style in the future.
In just a short period of time, the titular mobile game has already been breaking record after record, reaching a total of 10 million downloads in seven days. Meanwhile, players located in Bosnia are being warned of possible minefields.
According to USA Today, the overall number of "Pokemon GO" downloads has already reached to 10 million. And take note, such figure has been acquired in a matter of 7 days. This alone made the title as the fastest mobile game in history.
Unlike "Clash Royale," which is also a blockbuster hit mobile game, from Supercell, "Pokemon GO" reached the record two days sooner. Compared to "Candy Crush Jelly Saga," the iOS and Android supported mobile title did it for five days earlier.
"Pokemon GO" was first launched sometime in early July. Ever since then, the highly celebrated game has been downloaded by users for more than 30 million times. With its impending launch in Japan, the numbers are thought to even increase.
After all, the Land of the Rising Sun is deemed as one of the biggest markets in terms of Pokemons. Heck, it even has a partnership with fast food chain McDonald's.
With the success of "Pokemon GO" in the past few months or so, it has relatively increased Nintendo's value as a whole. The video game company is believed to be a minority stockholder in The Pokemon Company. Yes, its share price in the market has been doubled, surpassing its previous market cap.
In related news, BBC news reports about a possible incident bound to happen to all Bosnian "Pokemon GO" players. A Bosnia-based demining charity called Posavina Bez Mina reportedly warned those users who venture in risky areas that are packed with landmines.
Basically, "Pokemon GO" lets players use their phones to hunt monsters in real life. Approximately, there are at least 600 people who have been killed due to landmine accidents in the aforementioned country. Surprisingly, there are an average of 120,000 mines that have remained undiscovered.
