Niantic’s Pokemon Go game app is now officially launched and is ready to download in 15 new countries in Asia.
The full list of new countries are Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam, Taiwan, Papua New Guinea, Fiji, Solomon Islands, Federated States of Micronesia, and Palau, TechCrunch reports.
But despite of its major expansion in Asia, India, Korea and China are not on the list.
Niantic CEO John Hanke told Forbes that for China, it’s regulations and game’s reliance on Google Maps are the challenges obstructing a launch.
Pokemon Go was initially launched in U.S. on July 6, before it was rolled out to Australia, New Zealand, Canada, as later in Europe. The game app also launched in Japan on July 21 where the word of launched leaked out and rolled in Hong Kong after four days. It was also launched in Brazil where the Olympics currently held and reports says there are more plans for Latin America.
