Can’t Wait to Play Pokémon GO?! Japan is Opening Soon.

Pokemon Go July HelloWings

Pokémon GO

Pokemon GO has been the craze all over the world, catching Pokémons buying groceries, driving, and jumping off a cliff?!
But, sadly Pokémon GO isn’t open yet to most(if any) of the Asian countries due to server crashing issues.Ugh.
There is one place in Asia that many fans are looking forward to: Japan.As the birth place of Pokémons, many would’ve expect Japan to be on the list of first launches. Unfortunately, not the case.

But now, Pokemon Go for Japan might actually have a hint of hope coming soon!

Niantic’s marketing representative, Kento Suga, tweeted asking for the Japanese fans to be patient for the game release. Niantic’s Chief Executive Officer John Hanke also revealed that Japan’s server load is one of the reason inhibiting Pokemon Go to return to its original birthplace, but it’s expecting to be released at the end of July.

Even though some critics are estimating a release date of September or so, it’s still improvement from John Hanke’s statement on that China and Korea will most likely be kept out of the map.

Wait, End of July?! That’s like 10 days away….
