Pokémon Go launches in U.S. on iOS and Android

Pokémon Go is bringing gaming into the real world.


Now you can find a Pokémon on your evening stroll whether you’re in Atlanta or Zurich.

Pokémon Go launched today on the Apple App Store and Google Play worldwide. Go is a location-based augmented reality smartphone game that uses location tech to put monsters in your neighborhood (and elsewhere). It’s free-to-play with in-app transactions. This moves the series — which has shipped 275 million video games worldwide and is estimated to bring in $2.1 billion this year as one of the world’s largest brands — into the VR and AR market, which is expected to be its own $120 billion business by 2020, according to tech adviser Digi-Capital.

You’ll be able to find, capture, and battle Pokémon, as GamesBeat detailed last month during a look at its closed beta test. It layers the critters over the world thanks to your smartphone’s camera — you might find a Pikachu (the yellow cat-rat thing that’s the series mascot) sitting near a bush, or a Squirtle (the cute little turtle-like monster) standing near a pond.

The Pokémon Company and Niantic had a soft-launch for Go yesterday in Australia, New Zealand, and a few other regions.

Correction: The headline originally noted that Pokémon Go launched worldwide. It was the U.S. launch that happened today.

AI. Messaging. Bots. Arm yourself for the next paradigm shift at MobileBeat 2016. July 12-13 at The Village in San Francisco. Reserve your place here.
