Pokémon GO just dropped in Japan, and it doesn't get much more creative, in terms of trying to level up quickly as possible, than this!

Niantic set out to break down the barrier between purely handheld Pokemon gaming, and actually being able to train and battle, and capture Pokemon IRL, with their real world gaming platform Pokemon GO.

If these three images are any indication of what we might be able to expect from Pokemon GO and the platforms unique mobile location tech. / augmented reality gaming effectiveness; well then we are in for a mighty fine treat, indeed. 

Just like the game players can only catch certain wild Pokemon in certain native environments. You're not about to find a Wailord straight chillin' in a sandbox at your nearest park. And much like how the game works, you'll have to get those steps in to hatch any eggs you acquire.

I just can't wait for the battles to start up. Come at me bro. An early user field test hits Japan soon and there's no release date, so realistically it's probably time to cruise over there.

And just in case your juices were't already flowing, here is some footage from the SXSW Gaming Panel to give you a better look at Pokemon GO in action.

You know you love Kingdom Hearts and are craving for more news on the next entry into the series.

Well, according to Destructoid, more information is coming soon-ish.

If you're going to be in Japan on November 3, you may want to catch the D23 Expo event. Following up the recent event in Anaheim California, this D23 will have a special "Kingdom Hearts Premium Theater Event," which will feature new footage and "special guests."

There will be two showtimes with the same presentation, but there's a catch -- to get in, you'll have to win a 1,500 yen lottery raffle from September 15 to September 24. While this whole signup process is a bit absurd, I love that Kingdom Hearts is still relevant.
