• ‘Harry Potter: Wizards Unite' couldn't match the early success of ‘Pokemon Go'

    3 monthes ago - By TheBoyGeniusReport

    After launching a day early in the US, the new AR-based mobile game from Niantic that draws from the magical world of J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter does an admirable job of following up the company's previous smash hit mobile game, Pokemon Go .
    Harry Potter: Wizards Unite is now available to download and play in 130 countries, and it's off to a pretty good start, at least judging by the critical reaction which has largely praised how well the game incorporates the use of augmented reality.

    Harry Potter: Wizards Unite Hits Good Revenue, But A Fraction Of Pokémon Go's Players

    Harry Potter: Wizards Unite launched this past week, making the first follow up to Pokémon Go from Niantic. It is a tough task to follow up what was at one point a genuine cultural phenomenon, but WB and Niantic were betting big that Harry Potter would be the license to do it. If that is to be the case, it wasn't at launch, as Wizards Unite launched at a fraction of Pokémon Go, but still quite alright revenue.

This must have been a mistake, so we're offering Game Freak the opportunity to make things right by putting all of the following ideas into the upcoming Pokémon Sword and Shield. No need to thank us, Junichi. These ideas are free.

    Niantic's Harry Potter Game Is Way Less Popular Than Pokémon GO

    3 monthes ago - By Android Headlines

    Pokémon GO was by and large Niantic's biggest game ever, generating literal heaps of players in its first few days following the launch that no one should really be surprised by. It's based on Pokémon after all. Harry Potter: Wizards Unite on the other hand is nowhere near as popular according to a recent research study , which shows that the number of players which decided to give Wizards Unite a try is only a small fraction of the number of people that picked up Pokémon GO during its opening weekend.
    The research, which focuses partially on the data of how much money was spent by players...
