The creators of Pokémon Go are reportedly planning for a new version of the game, this time set in the wizarding world.
Harry Potter: Wizards Unite will follow the same format as the phone app, which became a global phemonenon last year.

The new game is set for release in 2018, according to TechCrunch, and will be co-developed by Niantic Labs, who created Pokémon Go, and Warner Bros Interactive along with its new sub-brand, Portkey Games.
Pokémon Go is location-based and lets the player see the world through a digital reality, to locate, capture and battle virtual creatures.
Little detail is known about the new development - but TechCrunch reports Ninantic labs' augmented reality style will have a heavy influence, juxtaposing in characters and creatures from JK Rowling's hit series into a camera view of the real world.
The game was rumoured earlier in the year but has only now been confirmed, TechCrunch says.
