When Harry Potter: Wizards Unite arrives later this year, by which name will you be known and feared? Lord Scooby? Mr. Cheddar? Fluffybutticus? The field is wide open, but you need to move fast to reserve your official code name right now.

“For a limited time, until April 30th at 11:59 P.M. PT, Ingress agents and Pokémon GO trainers will have the opportunity to reserve their agent name or trainer nickname to use in Harry Potter: Wizards Unite,” Niantic said.

I love the fact someone is making a serious play at another RTS. So far all future Funcom games I’ve seen, or heard about, recently I will probably end up buying.
