Pokémon GO news is finally rolling in, and it seems the game is inching closer and closer to release. It won’t be long now before the game is finally upon us. The latest bit of news comes from Japanese newspaper Yomiuri Shimbun, who had a chat with CEO of The Pokémon Company, Tsunekazu Ishihara.

According to Serebii, Ishihara has confirmed that the game will be deployed worldwide, and has also revealed the order in which the release will be rolled out. Apparently the game will first appear in Japan, North America and Europe. Following this initial launch, the game will be made available in Africa, Asia, South America and the Middle-East. Ishihara has curiously left out Australia and New Zealand in his statement, so we don’t know when the game will come out there.

There’s a heapload of Pokémon news to expect all year long, seeing as this year marks the series’ 20th year anniversary. Apart from Pokémon GO, we’re also expecting the announcement (if not the release) of Pokémon Z this year, as well as the release of a brand new movie starring newly revealed Pokémon Volcanion and Magearna.

What territory do you fall in? Are you excited for the launch of Pokémon GO?
