Pokemon Go Creators Have 'Begun Work' On Harry Potter Version
To all the Harry Potter fans, get ready, as the magic is coming soon to the real world.
After the great success of Pokemon GO, Niantic the developers of the game are going to make our childhood dreams come true once again, by making Harry Potter Go become a reality.
A petition was set up by Harry Potter fans requesting this the prospect of casting spells in real life, duelling with friends and being able to catch magical beasts.
Niantic have listened. They've wasted no time in acquiring the rights for the Harry Potter version of the app, Niantic's senior developer, Marcus Figueroa revealed more details in an interview.
We have acquired the rights for the app. The demand for this title was absolutely insance, so we figured we'd give it a shot. We want to do something with schools of witchcraft and wizardry, similar to pokestops in Pokemon Go. As well as quest system, and possibly lare scale completely interactive events, but no promises. That's all I can Say.
Hoping that we could see a lunch by early 2017, but it's hard to tell this early in the project.
YouTube channel Stargaze Media has put together a great video that shows off what Harry Potter GO could look like.
They used the Marauder's Map instead of a generic looking street map, getting sorted into houses instead of 'Teams' could be great fun.
