Users in New Zealand and Australia already have it on their app stores while The Wall Street Journal claims that Pokemon Company requests the users of US and Japan to ‘please wait for a while’ for the official launch of app’s. Hours later US and Japan app stores had the game with UK fans told them to wait till the end of the month.
Usually, most of the developers use New Zealand and Australia as the softlaunch markets to test out the certain aspects of the game such as the microtransaction prices and design elements. We have that with the titles from other big name publishers like EA and Rovio. Chances are that the same applies here. With an event that is slated sometime for the next month, called Pokemon Outbreak we would not be surprised to see the formal announcement around at that time.
The Wall Street Journal’s Takashi Mochizuki said that, So many of you asked him ‘for a while’ that for ‘how long’ for Pokemon GO.Sorry, donno (sic). He would have tweeted if he knew.
For the Indian fans though, there is the potential silver lining. Pokemon Go will definitely make it here, unlike Ninetendo’s Miitomo app that was conveniently forgot that the country exists. The Reason was being that, it was being developed and published by the Niantic Labs under the Pokemon Company’s supervision and it is not Ninetendo. Pokemon, here is popular enough to have the TV show that is airing regularly along with an extensive licensing and with the merchandising programme and all of this makes the possibility of the Pokemon Go that is releasing here all the more likely.
As is the case with the most games on the mobile devices, Pokemon Go is free-to-play and it features an assortment of in-app purchases that is ranging from $0.99 around Rs. 67 to $99 around Rs. 6,700.
