Hanoi (VNA) - Pokemon Go will be officially released in eight Asian markets this week, except Vietnam, according to sources.

More than two weeks after being released in the United States, Australia, New Zealand and more than 20 European countries, Niantic Labs, the distributor of Pokemon Go, appears to be cautious in Asia, with no country in this region officially hosting one of the world’s most popular games.

This is a puzzling move by Niantic Labs, as Asia has long been recognised as the world’s largest market for games, especially games on mobile phones.

But according to the latest information, eight Asian markets will be on the list for the Pokemon Go release this week: Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, the Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand and Japan.

The game will also come to some countries in America such as Brazil, Argentina, Chile and others.-VNA
