Harry Potter: Wizards Unite, the new mobile game from Pokémon Go developers, will be released this Friday, June 21st! The game is already live in New Zealand and Australia, and indeed in the U.S.
The new game features a way to interact with other gamers in the real world but through the Wizarding World. It includes loved characters from the original Harry Potter series and the Fantastic Beasts films.
“It’s what everyone imagines when you read the Harry Potter books,”Madhavi Marigold Muppala, product manager at Niantic Inc, said in a blog post. “You imagine the characters and world coming to life around you. Harry Potter: Wizards Unite takes this a step further and brings it to life in your world so that you can actually see all the magical characters and fantastic creatures all around you. It’s almost like you can reach out and touch them.”
You can find out more information about the game itself on their website. They walk you through a first look about how it works, how to interact with others and more.
