    Pokemon Go continues to take over the world. As of today, July 15, the massively popular mobile game launched in three more markets: Italy, Spain, and Portugal.
    The game, which challenges players to go out into the real world in search of Pokemon, is available in those countries for both iOS and Android.
    Starting now, Trainers in Italy, Spain, and Portugal can download Pokémon GO officially from the Play Store or App Store.

    Pokemon Go is not available everywhere just yet. Some of the major markets it's already launched in include the US, the UK, Germany, and Australia. John Hanke, the CEO of developer Niantic Labs, told Reuters the goal is to have the game available in roughly 200 markets "relatively soon," though he did not provide any specific timing details.
    "Why limit it?" he said.
    Hanke added that Pokemon Go should come to Japan soon and that it will eventually launch in South Korea. One issue, however, is that, as Reuters mentions, Google's mapping functions are limited in that region as a result of security considerations with North Korea. However, "There are solutions to that," Hanke said.
    As for China, which is a massive gaming market, Hanke wouldn't confirm any launch plans for that country, saying the country's regulations might make things difficult.
