Surprise! ‘Pokemon GO’ Has Been Released, Apparently!

According to several sources, highly anticipated free-to-play mobile game Pokemon GO, which would allow players to catch Pokemon by visiting locations in real life, is now available for iOS and Android…in some parts of the world, most notably Australia and New Zealand. While no official announcement has been made by Nintendo, the game has apparently made its way into stores in that region, with the rest of the planet hoping that there will only be a slight delay before they, too, can catch ’em all.

It’s expected the game should be available for everyone very shortly, possibly by the end of the day, but if you really can’t wait, however, there are apparently ways to get access to the game even in areas where it has not been released (but we wouldn’t know anything about that). While you’re waiting, though, you could always consider pre-ordering the $35 wrist accessory that lets you catch Pokemon in the game without using your phone!
