Most of us can remember the hype of Pokemon Go when it was a big thing on smartphones. Now, there is a new game that is starting to get people talking once again. It is a game also made for smartphones and it is also a Pokemon game. This one according to reporting from TechCrunch.com is currently in beta testing in Japan but signs are promising that it will spread to the rest of the world soon.
The game is not going to be a follow-up to the Pokemon Go game. Rather, this one is more about battling the various monsters against one another in a variety of levels to be enjoyed. It is in beta testing on Android devices in Japan where the first 15 levels have been made available to those beta testers. That is 15 levels out of a reported 52 levels that will be available in the full version.
The first 10,000 people to download the app got to try out the beta version and so there are 10,000 people out there right now who know a little about what this game will be like and if it is any fun or not.
Beta testing was scheduled to end on June 9th, so assuming that this went well it will only be a matter of weeks before the full game is available to people in Japan. From there it may take just a little more time to get the entire game available to everyone in the world via their smartphones. It is entirely possible that in just a very short period of time we will all be talking about this new Pokemon game and how great it is.
It will be hard to overtake the popularity of the Pokemon Go game, but there are some signs that this game will be popular with the same crowd who liked that earlier game. It is after all still a Pokemon game, and those seem to be popular almost no matter what.
