‘Pokémon Go’ Field Tests Begins



Days after the release of the most in-depth bout of information yet regarding the upcoming mobile title Pokémon Go, the first field tests for the game have reportedly begun in Japan. Japanese users were able to apply as field testers as of March 4, and starting today have been receiving invitations for the game via e-mail. According to Niantic’s Japanese site, they will slowly be expanding the number of players over time via a lottery system.

There have already been a number of leaked screenshots of the game, and as a result, some of the leakers’ accounts on both Pokémon Go and Ingress have been suspended. The leaked photos show a number of features thus far, including character customization, sound effect and music options, and a fillable Pokédex. Everything looks great aesthetically, and hopefully, we’ll learn more about the mechanics with time.
