Every 'Harry Potter' movie is coming to HBO

Harry Potter Wizards Unite

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

Software company Niantic Labs is basing this new game on the universe of Harry Potter, an equally massive cultural obsession. It's possible that Harry Potter: Wizards Unite will use sounds as cues.

Much like Pokemon Go, the game will use augmented reality to turn the world around us into the world of Harry, Hermione, the bloke from Cracker and the rest of the gang. Niantic Labs, the makers of the Pokémon-themed augmented reality game, are now working on one inspired by Harry Potter, Entertainment Weekly reports.

HBO is also hosting its own Harry Potter marathon on New Year's Day, giving fans-as well as some who might need something to watch while nursing a hangover-something to do after ringing in 2018.

Niantic said players would find and fight fantasy beasts in real-world neighbourhoods in the smartphone game, which has yet to get a release date. Interactive Entertainment, and WB Games San Francisco's development team to bring this magical and beloved series to life in a brand new way.

Niantic had previously attempted to popularise AR with Ingress, a location-based sci-fi game released in 2012. The only thing we can hope is somehow Niantic works with J.K. Rowling on this app, and sets up a sorting hat situation to determine your "teams" via houses, rather than just choosing what team you're on, like in 'Pokemon Go'.

As the press release notes, this is the first time that all eight Harry Potter movies will be available for streaming in one place.

Players will be able to cast spells and see magical beasts and characters from the books.
