SEOUL, Jan. 24 (Yonhap) -- Popular augmented reality (AR) game "Pokemon Go" was officially released in South Korea on Tuesday, six months after becoming a global hit with millions of downloads.
Users can download the Pokemon Go official application from Google Play store and Apple's App store, and it is available in Korean.
Pokemon Go didn't work in most parts of South Korea as the AR game uses data from Google's mapping service, which is restricted by the Seoul government due to security concerns.
However, tens of thousands of local users have downloaded the mobile game since its launch in the United States in July 2016.
Game developer Niantic Inc. said that it will hold a press conference later on Tuesday.
