When releasing the Galaxy Note 9 flagship smartphone in August 2018 ago, Samsung also announced its partnership with Epic Games . Yes! The South Korean electronics giant confirmed that along with Epic, they brought Fortnite exclusively into the Galaxy Note 9.
The latest news that is no less interesting for us to know, now Samsung is also approaching other game developers, namely Niantic . Reportedly, Samsung has poured money of US $ 40 million to invest in the Pokemon Go location-based game developer.
But mentioned, Niantic will not share about Pokemon. Instead, Niantic will provide an opportunity for Samsung to “enliven” the Harry Potter game that is being developed. Yes! Samsung was invited to turn S Pen into a magic wand.
There is no further explanation, whether this will be an addition to Harry Potter: Wizards Unite which will be released in 2019 or will make a separate title. Reworking existing games might be the best way for Samsung if they want it on the Galaxy Note 10 .
In addition, other games made by Niantic, Ingress, will also be part of the agreement. Related to that, an agreement between Samsung and Niantic could be announced before the end of this year, although it sounds like they both don’t want to be in a hurry.
Samsung insiders say that both, Samsung and Niantic are considered to want to see a little more progress in technical cooperation before making an official announcement. Of course this is important for Samsung so that this partnership can boost the devices that will be announced.
