Good news everyone! As of the early hours of this morning, Pokémon GO began rolling out onto the app stores on both iOS and Android!

Currently, the free-to-play augmented reality game which allows you to collect virtual Pokémon in the real-world, is available in Japan, Australia, and New Zealand, and will likely be making its way to the rest of the world later today.

You can head to the App Store and Google Play to see if it’s available in your country.

The game has been in development over at Niantic Labs for a little while now, with a few closed-beta tests running in Japan and North America. The game has players hunting for Pokémon across the globe as they’re hidden in a variety of locations. Players phones will then vibrate when a Pokémon is nearby, which players can then capture by throwing a Poké Ball at them.

We’re definitely keeping an eager eye on the UK app store for when the game launches here. It’s a game I definitely can’t wait for. Here’s hoping it’s a little more entertaining than Miitomo…

Update: This post previously stated that Pokémon Go was available in Japan. That is incorrect and the article has been changed to reflect that.

My cousin lives in Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia, I will recommend her to install this game, but I hate Pokemon Go.

What’s the catch in this post? Anybody can install this game or any game or any application if he/she using Android devices anytime and living anywhere.
