Pokemon GO has released a new commercial for its summer event Pokemon GO Fest 2020.

The tagline is "A Whole Earth for a Festival". The theme of this year's GO Fest, which was the first virtual event to be held due to the global situation, is that you can participate in it from home or in your neighborhood.

Speaking of Pokemon GO Fest 2020 commercials, there's also an international version of the commercial, remotely produced from home by Ryan Johnson, known for his work on Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi. This one, "A Whole Earth for a Festival," is positioned as the Asian version.

Pokemon GO Fest 2020 will be held on July 25 and 26, and tickets are valid for both days and cost 1840 yen including tax.

Until last year, the summer event GO Fest sold tickets by lottery overseas, and in Japan, while tickets were free, you could only attend if you passed a narrow lottery. This year's event will be virtual, so the capacity of the real venue will not be an issue, and anyone who buys a ticket will be able to attend.

Niantic says it has already sold more than 700,000 tickets and is expecting the largest attendance ever.
