Pokemon Go: Japanese Government Issues Safety Warnings



Pokemon Go is expected to arrive in Japan any day now, and the country's National Center for Incident Readiness and Strategy for Cybersecurity has sent out a safety guide, to hopefully stop any Pokemon-related accidents before they occur.

The country's National Center for Incident Readiness and Strategy for Cybersecurity (NISC) issued nine instructions to users of the mobile game, ranging from advising them not to use their real names to warning gamers over fake apps.
As reported by The Japan Times, where I am a columnist, the National Center of Incident Readiness and Strategy for Cybersecurity (NISC) under the Cabinet Office put out a nine-point bulletin warning people of possible problems surrounding the game. Most of it is rather sensible, and the government is asking people to share this info with other players, especially younger ones.

Pokemon Go is without a release date for Japan, but according to the game's partner in Japan, McDonald's, a release is coming soon. John Hanke, the CEO of Pokemon Go developer Niantic Labs, said previously that the release was being held back until server capacity could be met.
