BERLIN (AP) — The popular smartphone game “Pokemon Go” has been officially rolled out in Germany.
The game has sparked a frenzy of players wandering around U.S. cities hunting for “pocket monsters” to fight.
The makers of “Pokemon Go,” which is partly owned by Nintendo, announced on Twitter that the game was available Wednesday in Europe’s biggest economy.

Some have criticized the real-world locations to which the game sends players to battle virtual monsters.
“Pokemon Go” developer Niantic apologized last year for making Nazi concentration camps part of its mobile role-playing game “Ingress.”
