It's quite easy to please the fans, just give them what they want and they'll support it 100%. But if felt unheard, they will take matters into their own hands. That's exactly what happened to "Harry Potter Go."

Potterheads have been pushing Niantic to make this "Pokemon Go" version of the "Harry Potter" franchise a reality. But one fan took it a step further and already made a concept for the highly-wanted game.

Full-blooded Potterhead, Ashtyn Hannon, didn't only start an online petition for the "Harry Potter Go" game, the fan also shared an interesting concept for the "Harry Potter" version of "Pokemon Go." The concept is obviously similar to "Pokemon Go," which took the game world of 2016 by storm.

In this version though, instead of catching Pokemons, players will be searching for magical creatures in "Harry Potter Go." The author also noted that Warner brothers will also be enjoying this idea as the "Pokemon Go" inspired game will bring more cash to the company.

"This game is a win for all. Harry Potter fans can return to the magical universe of witchcraft and wizardry, and Warner Brothers could cash in tons of muggle money," Ashtyn Hannon wrote. "According to my brief study of economics, if there is enough demand, it will be supplied."

Clearly, Potterheads are liking the author's concept as the "Harry Potter Go" online petition already gathered over 62,000 signatures for its 65,000 goal. 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.
