Pokémon Go is Getting a Field Test in Japan This Month
Please let this be good.
PokÃ©mon Go is an augmented reality game for mobile phones that claims to bring the PokÃ©mon experience into the real world. While details are still a little sparse on just how that will work, the concept alone has us on pins and needles.
Although PokÃ©mon Go's GDC presentation was recently cancelled, it seems as though the project is right on track. On developer Niantic's blog the messaged:
"The PokÃ©mon Company and Niantic will be inviting users to field test PokÃ©mon GO in Japan later this month. The PokÃ©mon GO field test program will give users the opportunity to share early feedback and help improve the PokÃ©mon GO experience. Please stay tuned for information about expansion of the field test to other markets."
This looks to bode well for PokÃ©mon Go, and with PokÃ©mon Sun and Moon coming out in Holiday 2016, this may be the best year for PokÃ©mon yet.
