Google-owned Niantic Labs, the maker of Ingress, has been working with The Pokémon Company to literally bring a beloved video game franchise into the real world. That project is being called Pokémon GO.
Excitement has building around the game with gameplay footage leaked continuously onto YouTube. When it came time, fans in Australia and New Zealand got to the chance to field test the game on iOS and Android. It’s now the US’s chance to join in on the capturing, trading and battling fun.
You can sign up for a chance to play around at the source link below. Keep in mind that the oldest software you can have to participate is either Android 4.3 or iOS 8 on an iPhone 5. Intel Atom-run Android devices are also out of the running. You’ll also need to sign a non-disclosure agreement.
And to think that we’ll also get to play Animal Crossing and Fire Emblem on our phones soon enough!
