Pokemon Go release date
When we talk about Asian countries, South Korea comes in the list since the country is one of the world’s largest gaming markets. However, Pokemon Go may never be released in the country due to differences in the use of Google’s map data.
The game makes use of real-time geospatial technologies and map data from Google servers. However, the South Korean government has restricted the use of uncensored map data from overseas. In the meantime, Google has refused to accept the demand of the government to use censored map data. Hence, it is certain that the sensational game will never be launched in the country.
As per reports, China was also initially hesitant about the game stating security concerns. It is also believed that the US and Japan could make use of the game to spy on its military bases and other sensitive installations.
There is no basis for any concerns now since the game has already arrived in Hong Kong and gamers are enjoying it. Hence, gamers in China will not have to wait longer to catch Pokemons.
