McDonald's Japan announces tie-up with 'Pokemon Go'

TOKYO -- "Pokemon Go" players will soon have access to special gaming experiences at all of the roughly 2,900 McDonald's restaurants in Japan, the operator of the fast-food chain said on Friday.

Under the tie-up with the augmented reality smartphone game, which was belatedly released in Japan the same day, about 400 McDonald's restaurants will become "gyms," where patrons will be able to battle one another in the game.
