Pokemon Go makers working on new Harry Potter AR game”

So we can expect that Harry Potter game will also break all records.

Remember a year ago when the world lost its mind and spent several months solid playing Pokemon Go?!

Following the extreme success of Pokemon GO, Niantic Labs has its latest augmented reality title that will totally have fans of J.K. Rowling's literary works super thrilled.

Software company Niantic Labs is basing this new game on the universe of Harry Potter, an equally massive cultural obsession. "Explore real-world neighborhoods and cities to discover mysterious artifacts, learn to cast spells, and encounter legendary beasts and iconic characters along the way!"

There are certain movies that deserve to be watched over and over again, and the entire Harry Potter series falls into this category beautifully.

When we first covered the game's reveal reports stated that it would be similar to Pokemon Go and Ingress in that it would require players to explore the real world using their phone's Global Positioning System via location-based events and challenges.

HBO is also hosting its own Harry Potter marathon on New Year's Day, giving fans-as well as some who might need something to watch while nursing a hangover-something to do after ringing in 2018. In the game, players catch Pokémon that appear on a real-world map, while interacting with gyms pinned to real world places.

The game "will reveal that magic is all around us", reads the press release.

No other information on the game has been made available at this time.

"If you look at the different major franchises out there, I don't think there are many that could do Pokemon Go justice as a follow-up".
