Niantic plans for Pokémon Go launch in 200 regions

The hype-train for Pokémon Go shows no signs of slowing down with John Hanke, chief executive of Niantic, telling Reuters the game will be available in around 200 countries and regions in the near future.

The news of Pokémon Go spreading further around the world propelled Nintendo’s shares up a further 10 percent on Friday, which have already climbed 86 percent, adding $17 billion in market value. Ironically Pokémon Go is still unavailable in Japan with that market coming on board later this month.

I mean, assuming the flaming heap that is the Pokémon Go servers is put out by then.
