'Pokemon Go' Beta to be Released in Japan This Month, 'Sun and Moon' Updates in CoroCoro Starting Next Month
Fans are raving over the interesting updates on upcoming “Pokemon” games “Pokemon Go,” “Pokemon Sun” and “Pokemon Moon.”
“Pokemon Go” developer Niantic has announced that the augmented-reality game is going to be released in Japan this month, reports Neurogadget. Moreover, the game also appears to be slated release in other regions later.
The game is currently accepting registration for its field test program, or “Pokemon Go” Beta, in Japan. In it, players can give their feedback that will help the developers improve the game experience. The registration for the Beta, however, is only in Japan.
Those who would want to register and get a chance in the Beta program will need to have either an iOS or Android device and a registered account on Google. Slots are limited, and those who get accepted are required to keep things confidential.
Players aren't the only ones excited – scammers are, too. After Niantic announced the Beta program, various fake websites suddenly popped up, asking for Beta aspirants to submit their details. The Pokemon Company warns against entering and submitting any email and password detail to these sites.
Meanwhile, fans are also at a high level of anticipation for the scoop on the upcoming “Pokemon Sun” and “Pokemon Moon” games.
Apparently, this is because details of the new games are said to be coming by way of Japanese magazine CoroCoro. GoNintendo reports that CoroCoro promises to deliver “huge” information regarding the newest installments to the monster-training and monster-catching franchise, once the next issue goes public on April 15.
Additionally, CoroCoro mentioned something about a so-called “Pokemon Elections” regarding the “Pokemon” movies, as well as a special countdown, reports Serebii. The full context of what the magazine has promised isn't known as of the moment, but it's pretty exciting.
Adding to fans' excitement is the speculation that the new games “Sun” and “Moon” might tie into the Nintendo NX and will come in full 3D on the Nintendo 3DS, reports Cinema Blend. This, and other speculations such as the NX being a cross-breed console that works with both handheld and home consoles just add to the hype.
Stay tuned for more updates on the upcoming “Pokemon” games.
