According to The Wall Street Journal’s Takashi Mochizuki, US and Japanese fans have been told to “please wait for a while” for the release of the upcoming smartphone game, Pokemon GO.
The news comes following the launch of the app in New Zealand and Australia on both the Google Play and Apple’s App Store, suggesting that Nintendo may have opted for a ‘soft launch’ for Pokemon GO.
If a Tweet from Wall Street Journal’s Takashi Mochizuki is anything to go by, however, it may be a slightly longer wait than we may have first anticipated.
According to the tweet, the Pokemon Company has told fans to “please wait for a while” for the formal launch of Pokemon GO. While the game has already made an appearance on download sites, allowing for Android users outside of Australia and New Zealand to download the apps onto their smartphones, it seems the Pokemon Company is suggesting to wait to download it the official way.
We’ll be sure to keep you updated as and when the game launches on another territory’s app store.
