Muggles from the gaming world have been clamoring for Harry Potter GO after Niantic Labs’ Pokemon GO has become such a big hit since its release. If you make your voices loud enough, Niantic might just pay some attention and grant your wish!
There’s no confirmation yet as to whether or not the mobile app is currently under way. J.K. Rowling, Warner Bros. and Pokemon GO need some serious convincing in order for this colossal project to come true. Fans are not giving up hope, though. Right now there’s an ongoing online petition that has already reached 60,859 out of the 65,000 signature goal to urge game developers to create the longed for, long-awaited Harry Potter GO app.
The Next Best Thing
Warner Bros. is still mum about the issue, so while waiting they have something nice to offer their fans instead. The Harry Potter spinoff Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is going to be released come November 17. And along with it, Warner Bros. has collaborated with Mediatonic to develop a location-based app for Harry Potter fanatics.
The game is called Fantastic Beast: Cases From The Wizarding World. When it’s released this week, it will be available on Google Play Store and the Apple App Store. Sure, this isn’t what Harry Potter GO fans have been asking for but it sure is the next best thing. In here, you can explore cool places such as Hogsmeade, the Leaky Cauldron and Diagon Alley. Gamers are also allowed to choose their houses whether they’re Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw or Slytherin. The Ministry of Magic and Hogwarts Castle are also in store plus players will get to have their very own Marauder’s Map.
So what are you waiting for? Sign the petition and join the movement to make your dream come true! In the meantime, enjoy the film together with the app! Have fun!
