Pokémon Go has had its first unofficial look thanks to YouTuber Eric F.

The video was reportedly captured at SKSW(South by Southwest), at a panel hosted by John Hanke.

Hanke is the CEO of developer Niantic, who is in charge of Pokémon Go. The footage posted does not include any of the panel stage, keeping Hanke out of the shot. The footage filmed does show a large screen, so it’s completely possible that this is legitimate footage.

The video has Hanke explaining how you’ll have to adventure to different areas to capture different types. He even mentions mountains, meaning that mountain bikers and hikers may be in luck.

The ‘capturing’ of the Pokémon requires you to fling Pokéballs at a target, and when successfully hit, has a chance of catching.

The game is set for a 2016 release date in Japan, Europe, and North America.
