Our team has been making the most of the sunny California weather by walking
long distances and enthusiastically testing all of the refinement and new
features in Pokémon GO. Many of these refinements have been inspired by
feedback received from our field testers in Australia, New Zealand, Japan and
United States. Thank you for testing the app and for giving us such great
We have a few exciting updates to share. We’ve added a new Camera feature that
enables Trainers to take photographs of their wild Pokémon encounters. Now you
can take a photo of Squirtle next to that scenic lake or Ivysaur hanging out by
the park. The photos will be saved to your phone’s camera roll to share with
whomever you’d like. We can’t wait to see the varied environments in which
trainers will find wild Pokémon.
We’re also thrilled to announce that Pokémon GO’s all-new music track is composed by GAME FREAK’s Junichi Masuda. We've been working closely with Masuda-san on several of the core game design elements of Pokémon GO and feel very fortunate to also have drawn from his decades of experience composing original music for the Pokémon games.
We enjoyed participating in Nintendo’s Treehouse Live Pokémon GO developer Q&A
session at E3 today. With each day, we’re getting closer to launch and we can’t
wait to share this game with everyone. Stay tuned for more details.
