"Pokemon Go" is definitely one of those highly-addictive games ever invented. Even if one don'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.

Fans of the "Harry Potter" franchise are hoping for Niantic to develop a "Pokemon Go" style game, dubbed as "Harry Potter Go." GamenGuide has previously reported that the American software development company's senior developer did not shut down the idea but notes that they are not ready to announce anything about "Harry Potter Go" for now.

Although Niantic's senior developer showed interest in creating "Harry Potter Go," that thought alone is not enough for the Potterheads. One fan took things a step further and started an online petition to make "Harry Potter Go" official.

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 62,000 supporters! While the petition is still quite fresh, it is obvious that a lot of people are hoping for this "Pokemon Go" inspired game to become a reality.

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. The petitioner then shared a concept as to how the "Harry Potter Go" may look like and so far fans are liking the idea and have been sharing the petition site to gather more supporters.
