A motion graphic and design studio called Stargaze Media recently released a clip that reimagines the Pokemon GO game that took the world by storm but replacing its universe with that of J.K. Rowling's enchating Harry Potter universe.
The videomaker adapted elements of the series such as choosing houses, gathering cards, catching fantastic beasts and interacting with other wizards as part of the game, while Elite Daily hinted it might also include fictional meeting points such as Hogsmeade, Diagon Alley, Hogwarts Castle, and the Ministry of Magic.
The clip gained positive response from the Harry Potter fandom around the world, and eventually reached Niantic Labs, which created Pokemon Go. As reported by Morning Ledger, Niantic's senior developer Marcus Figueroa recently said they might move to acquired the rights to a potential Harry Potter Go game and are working on the new title to cater to fans' demands.
Figueroa revealed that they could potentially to involve the schools of witchcraft and wizardry, a quest system, and massive interactive events. But while all of this sounds super exciting, the team unfortunately has yet to announce an official launch plan for the project.
Meanwhile, they are already tinkering around with another wizard-related game in mind titled Maguss, which may come with a tangible wand that some are saying could replace the balls on Pokemon GO.
But the game developer already has something in their minds; another wizardry game project titled Maguss. Maguss is said to function with a tangible wand too, perhaps to replace the balls on "Pokemon Go".
Whichever comes first, we can't wait.
