Niantic Labs CEO John Hanke told that the augmented-reality game Pokemon Go is expected to launch in Japan.
The Pokemon Go is already available in several regions throughout the world, where the game’s developer says that Japan’s servers are to blame for the delay.
Niantic Labs CEO John Hanke said that Pokemon Go game app may launch soon, if not by the end of July, Forbes reports.
“At present, the server capacity in Japan is not powerful enough,” Hanke said.
“We are working hard with our partners in Japan to enable the servers to keep up with the demand once the game goes online there. We expect it to be released by the end of July.”
Despite of delayed launch, Nintendo, which only co-owns the Pokemon franchise but did not develop or publish the game, did broke stock market records in Japan last week. The company Nintendo reportedly traded about 476 billion yen, as it is breaking the previously record held by Tokyo energy company.
