Harry Potter Version of Pokemon Go, "Wizards Unite", Coming Soon

Harry Potter Wizards Unite Is AR Game from Niantic

Given Niantic's history of making games that use the geolocation and augmented-reality features of smartphones, and the descriptions given, it sounds like "Harry Potter: Wizards Unite" will have players interacting with the real world through their smartphone camera.

According to TechCrunch, Harry Potter: Wizards Unite is an upcoming AR game from Niantic Labs. That said, it's probably safe to assume that Niantic will implement at least a few mechanics from their previous AR games, Pokemon Go and Ingress. Interactive and its brand new sub-brand Portkey Games.

Rumors of a Harry Potter mobile game previously surfaced past year when Niantic announced it had acquired the rights to the app. Interactive and Portkey Games.

It's the first game from a new studio dedicated to creating games in the "Harry Potter" universe.

There aren't any other details to go on just yet, though "Potter" seems like the flawless property for a game like this, with so many characters, spells, and rich wizarding history to draw from. Harry Potter: Wizards Unite will nearly certainly borrow many elements from Pokemon Go, which has players exploring the real world to find Pokemon and use them in gym battles.

Many people praised Pokémon GO for encouraging users to actively explore the world around them transforming neighborhoods into hunting -grounds for fantastical creatures.

Just what the game is set to look like remains to be seen but we're promised more details in 2018. The idea is that it would let players virtually immerse themselves in Rowling's magical world, overlaid on their real-world surroundings via smartphones.

If you owned a smartphone in the summer of 2016, chances are you were sucked into Pokémon Go for some amount of time.

Merlin's beard! Harry Potter is about to make a serious comeback - on our mobile phones.

However, it is easy to speculate that the game will require players to assume the role of wizards living in our humble muggle world. If you catch the AR snitch though you win the match because we've gotta get that in there somewhere.
