We already told you about developer Niantic's upcoming Harry Potter AR game, but it seems that's not the only mobile return to Hogwarts in the works. It's not clear what the time frame on the game will be, although playing in a post-Deathly Hallows Hogwarts could be interesting.

Not only will the game feature well-known characters and settings, it is also tapping into the current nostalgia trend with its 1980s setting, which means it will serve as a sequel of sorts to the Harry Potter books and films.
