Pokemon GO Japanese field test invites being sent out

If you signed up, check your e-mail.

Pokemon GO

Invitations to join the Japanese domestic field test for Pokemon GO have begun being sent out today.

Those who finished the registration process launched earlier this month should check their e-mails.

The field test, which is meant to improve the game features and balance, will support Android version 4.3 or higher, and iOS devices iPhone 5 or higher.

According to developer Niantic’s official blog, this test is based on real-world experience and the device in use, and that those chosen to participate were done so by lottery and invitation. If you did not receive an e-mail today, Niantic plans to sequentially expand the number of users participating in the field test.
