Breaking News: Niantic Holds the Launch of Pokemon Go in Japan



From TechCrunch: Pokémon Go launch in Japan cancelled after email leak. 

Yesterday we posted that the game will be live in Japan today (Wednesday) but the companies behind Pokémon Go have postponed the launching of the game an after internal communication from McDonalds Japan, the game’s sponsor, detailing the launch made its way to internet forums.

According to TechCrunch an initial morning launch time was pushed back to early afternoon as the email went viral however, the companies decided to cancel today’s launch entirely. Newswire Nikkei is reporting that the new date is tomorrow (Thursday).

This cancellation will frustrate many in Japan but taking the positive side, if the game is launched right, their serves can handle the undoubtedly huge demand that Pokémon Go will generate in Japan. Ninatic CEO John Hanke previously cautioned that the company needed time to ensure it had enough servers to cope with a deluge of Pokémon addicts in Japan.

The success of Pokémon Go is unprecedented. Pokémon Go is available in more than 30 countries right now thanks to a steady rollout across Europe last week. Japan is planned to be the first region in Asia where the game will be available, and once the game is live there, it will be extended to other countries in the region.
