Warner Bros. has announced that it will be publishing a range of mobile and console Harry Potter titles under a new label, Portkey Games.

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

As Niantic have seen such success using AR for Pokemon Go, they've brought this technology to their upcoming game.

Nintendo Switch Finally Gets Its First Major Streaming App Today
As a guy who has had an absolute ball playing his Switch this year, I have to say Nintendo is delivering on every point this year. With Hulu now on the Switch you have to imagine Netflix, Amazon, and the rest of the streaming pack won't be far behind.

Game developer Niantic's follow-up to Pokémon Go is going to be based on another massively popular franchise with a huge fan base: Harry Potter.

Warner said Niantic's Harry Potter: Wizards Unite was just one of several new games based on JK Rowling's characters that are planned. People can roam around their own vicinity for a magical experience, similar to what "Pokemon Go" players do in their real-world location to hunt down pocket monsters. Interactive Entertainment. "It is wonderful to have Niantic's remarkable augmented reality expertise as we develop this incredibly rich wizarding world for players to explore in their everyday lives".

Relatively few details have been provided at this point about the forthcoming game, except that it will involve players learning spells before exploring their neighbourhoods to search for mysterious artefacts and fight "legendary beasts" with the option to team up with others to "take down powerful enemies". The working of the game is same as of Pokemon Go. In addition to making all eight Harry Potter films available via HBO On Demand, HBO Now and HBO Go, the network will air them in a marathon - with Fantastic Beasts tacked on at the end - starting with Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone at 9 a.m. ET/PT on Monday, Jan. 1.
