'Pokemon GO' Is 'Finally Broadcasting' In Japan; Game Has Been Downloaded Over 1.3 Million Times
Finally, after quite some time since its first release, "Pokemon GO" has finally reached Japan. Besides, it is bound to happen, as the Land of the Rising Sun is home to everything Pokemons. With the game's arrival, it looks like everyone in the country is jumping into the hype train. Currently, it has been downloaded over 1.3 million times already.
"Pokemon GO" was first released in Australia, New Zealand and shorty after in the United States. As of this writing, it has been made available to a total of 30 countries, including the ones in Europe. Asia was previously deemed as the next continent to receive the game, with Japan being the first one.
Indeed, as reported by BBC, "Pokemon GO" has finally reached the aforementioned country. And this does not come as a surprise, as it is the land where Pokemons were born. Developer Niantic made the big reveal recently, announcing that the game is "finally broadcasting."
It should be noted that the "Pokemon GO" Japanese launch came with lots of excitement. This includes a partnership with McDonald's. The fast food chain is believed to act as one of the gyms where players will battle and/or acquire creatures.
As the "Pokemon GO" hype in Japan snowballs (currently, it has been downloaded 1.3 million times), the country's government officials cautions any possible risk it may come with. The authorities advised gamers to use "cool names" that are different from their real names and/or identities. The risk of heatstroke has also been warned, as players tend to walk around the streets looking for Pokemons.
USA Today, on the other hand, reports that "Pokemon GO" being the number 1 most downloaded app in Japan is not really surprising. As mentioned, the country is home to Pokemons and fans have been waiting for it to arrive.
"Pokemon GO" has become a worldwide phenomenon, proving how augmented reality games can become hit in the industry. The is also expected to arrive to other neighbouring countries in Asia, though Niantic has still yet to release any sort of announcement or whatnot.
