Catch ’em all! Pokémon Go is rolling out to Android and iOS right now

...

The day has finally come. Pokémon Go was first announced back in September, and then released in closed beta in March. Now, however, the game is apparently ready for consumer use, landing on both iOS and Android today.

It doesn’t seem as though the game is available in all markets yet, however considering the fact that the roll-out has begun, if you haven’t seen it yet you should in the very near future. It can be downloaded from the Google Play Store and the App Store.

Pokémon Go was developed as a collaboration between Nintendo and Niantic Labs, and uses the smartphone’s camera, sensors, and location to put Pokémon in various locations in the real world. That’s right — to play this game you’ll have to get off your butt and actually go outside! As you travel to different landmarks and locations in your city, you’ll run into wild Pokemon, train them, and battle with them at gyms.

The game itself is free, however it does have micro-transactions costing between $1 and $100. Not only that, but if you’re really serious about the game you can buy a $35 wearable that will let you play it without having to actually unlock your phone.

The release is somewhat of a surprise considering the fact that Nintendo and Niantic have kept quiet about a specific release date. Hints were dropped during E3 that it might make it to the public some time in July, so the release will be a nice surprise for those eager to try their hand at the new augmented reality game.

As mentioned, the game isn’t available around the world just yet, but you should be able to at some point in the near future.
