The much anticipated augmented reality game of the year is finally here.
Pokémon Go, the latest mobile game from Nintendo and developer Niantic Labs is slowly rolling out for iOS and Android users around the world.
Currently, the Pokémon GO app is only available on the app store for Australia, New Zealand and Japan. It will be made available for other countries really soon.

The game is free to play and with an option for in-app purchase if you need more Pokeball and other upgrades. 100 PokeCoins will cost US$1.48 (S$2)
