First Pokemon Go footage revealed, looks not great

0

Over hyped?

The first ever footage of Pokémon Go was revealed at SXSW by John Hanke, CEO of Niantic, the developer of the game.

This early first glimpse leaves much to be desired, as the graphics and gameplay seem rather dull. What happened to using your Pokémon to battle other wild creatures like shown in the announcement trailer? Instead, it looks like you just toss balls at Pokémon faces until they are finally caught.

I'll still give Pokémon Go a chance when it releases later this year on mobile devices, but my hype has been all but destroyed.
