Pokemon GO Is A No Show In Japan Because Of Server Capacity

Niantic CEO John Hanke has explained to Forbes why Japanese gamers still don’t have access to the incredibly popular Pokemon GO. It turns out that at the present moment the server capacity in Japan just couldn’t cope with the demand that the game will undoubtedly see. However, Pokemon GO is expected to be released in Japan by the end of July.

“At present, the server capacity in Japan is not powerful enough. We are working hard with our partners in Japan to enable the servers to keep up with demand once the game goes online there. We expect it to be released by the end of July.”



    1. They had a beta test before.
      They then tested the severs briefly for 2 hours last week.
      But that’s it. No official launch.
      There’s no point side loading on android, or downloading from an international store because there’s no Pokemon, arenas, or pokestops.

      The longer they wait, the more annoyed people will become. Already a lot of Japanese people are over the hype and it’s given reasons for many to not like the Americans.

      Japan have the world Pokemon. The Pokemon company decide to truly give the world Pokemon in a new game. But the thanks Japan gets is “oh. You will have to wait…it’s been two weeks but you might have to wait a month…or more…we kinda forgot to sort out servers for a nation who love Pokemon” – in short…Niantic have screwed Japan over big time.

  1. This game will be insane in Japan. Even with proper preparation I still don’t think that they are going to have everything running smoothly when it finally releases

  2. To hear Japanese gamers cry about getting a game late is kind of funny. I’ve been waiting for years for some games to reach state side and sometimes they never come. I’m looking at u Mother 3…

  3. I find it funny to see Japanese gamers cry about getting a game later then everyone else. I’ve had to wait years and sometimes the damn game never comes. I’m looking at you mother 3…..
