(Maybe) Your First Look At Pokémon Go

John Hanke, CEO of Pokémon Go developers Niantic, gave a talk at SXSW Gaming over the weekend on the future of AR (Augmented Reality) games. Shortly afterwards, this video showed up.


Of course, with no official video of the talk available (or a transcript), we can’t be 100% sure that this is something actually shown during Hannke’s presentation.

But that sure sounds like Hanke, and with Pokémon Go due to start testing in Japan this month, surely it’s time to take the wraps off.
