Pokemon Go launching in Japan tomorrow

Pokémon Go is scheduled to launch in Japan tomorrow (Wednesday) alongside a McDonald’s promotional tie-in.

Niantic CEO John Hanke recently told Forbes that the delay is because the companies behind the app — which include the Pokémon company and Nintendo — want to ensure that its servers are suitably robust to withstand the demand that the Japan launch is sure to generate.

McDonald’s will be the first launch partner in a tie-in that will see its 3,000 plus fast food restaurants across Japan become gyms for would-be Pokémon collectors.

More launches in Asian countries will happen this week and next
