'Harry Potter Go' News & Update: Fan Shares Concept To 'Pokemon Go' Inspired Game, Petition Still Ongoing To Make It Possible
"Pokemon Go" is definitely one of those highly-addictive games ever invented. Even if one doesn't play "Pokemon Go," chances are a friend or a family member is addicted to the free-to-play location-based, augmented reality game. With this much-hyped concept, Potterheads are pushing their luck to have their very own "Harry Potter Go" as well.
It's quite easy to please the fans, just give them what they want and they'll support it 100%. But if felt unheard, they will take matters into their own hands. That's exactly what happened to "Harry Potter Go." Potterheads have been pushing Niantic to make this "Pokemon Go" version of the "Harry Potter" franchise a reality. But one fan took it a step further and already made a concept for the highly-wanted game.
Full-blooded Potterhead, Ashtyn Hannon, didn't only start an online petition for the "Harry Potter Go" game, the fan also shared an interesting concept for the "Harry Potter" version of "Pokemon Go." The concept is obviously similar to "Pokemon Go," which took the gaming world of 2016 by storm. In this version though, instead of catching Pokemons, players will be searching for magical creatures in "Harry Potter Go."
The author also noted that Warner brothers will also be enjoying this idea as the "Pokemon Go" inspired game will bring more cash to the company. The petition title states "Accio Harry Potter Go: We Want a Harry Potter Version of Pokemon Go!" The petitioner's goal is to have 65,000 signatures and it currently has over 63,000 supporters! Clearly, Potterheads are liking the author's concept for "Harry Potter Go."
The fan who started the "Harry Potter Go" game then added a hashtag #WeNeedHarryPotterGO for all the Potterheads to show their support to the "Pokemon Go" version of J.K. Rowling's Book. Stargaze Media and Near Human Intelligence even made "Harry Potter Go" trailers for all the fans to see what it would look like if developed.
