First Pokémon GO footage is rough

The first footage of upcoming iOS/Android alternate reality game Pokémon GO has apparently been shown at a SXSW panel and it looks, well, not great. For a game coming out this summer and heading to beta in Japan soon, it seems to have quite a ways to go.

The video shows an encounter with Ivysaur in which a Pokéball fails to capture the creature and a Master Ball is ultimately used to snag it. The balls seem to be available for a currency most likely tied to in-app purchases, although there will probably be ways to earn it inside the game.

What do you think?
