Now that Nintendo Co., Ltd (ADR) (OTC: NTDOY) has doubled in less than two weeks from Pokémon GO's viral popularity, other companies have taken notice and will likely capitalize on the revolutionary trend.

Walt Disney Co (NYSE: DIS) and Time Warner Inc (NYSE: TWX) are potential players in the industry, with their arsenal of franchises and popular characters, according to a recent Seeking Alpha piece.

Currently, there is an online petition to create a "Harry Potter" augmented reality game, which would certainly game a lot of traction with its massive following. Movie studios could also revitalize their old franchises by creating AR games.
