You read it right – the
magical world of “Harry Potter” is coming to us muggles in the form
of augmented reality mobile game.

Following the success of the
hit “
Pokémon GO”, developer Niantic will next bring to life author
J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding World through “Harry Potter: Wizards Unite”.
“With “Harry
Potter: Wizards Unite”, players that have been dreaming of becoming real
life Wizards will finally get the chance to experience J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding
World,” the company said in a statement.
“Players will learn spells,
explore their real world neighbourhoods and cities to discover and fight
legendary beasts and team up with others to take down powerful enemies.”
Partnering with Warner Bros.
Interactive Entertainment and the WB Games San Francisco development team, the
company will integrate the augmented reality foundations laid by “Ingress”
(their first augmented reality mobile game) and “
Pokémon
GO”
, with
the world-famous “Harry Potter” franchise.
The mention of fighting
legendary beasts, rather than some of Harry Potter’s infamous foes such as
Voldemort and the Dark Eaters, might also hint at a potential tie-in with the
upcoming sequel of “Fantastic Beast and Where to Find Them” which
rolls out next year.
No release date has been
given for “Harry Potter: Wizards Unite” but hold on tight to your
wands and stay tuned for updates.
