Now there’s a way to tell Poké­mon to Go

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - NEWS -

THE cre­ators of Poké­mon Go say they’re work­ing to re­move re­al­world lo­ca­tions that don’t wish to be in­cluded in the mo­bile gaming sen­sa­tion.

Mar­ket­ing direc­tor JC Smith said they’re up­dat­ing the aug­mented-re­al­ity game so it re­mains fun for play­ers, but re­spects the real world.

Sev­eral lo­ca­tions, such as the Hiroshima Peace Memo­rial Park in Ja­pan and the Ar­ling­ton Na­tional Ceme­tery in Wash­ing­ton DC, have asked to be re­moved from Poké­mon Go.

De­vel­oper Niantic of­fers an on­line form to re­quest ex­clu­sions, but changes to the game are not au­to­matic. – ANA-AP
