Pokemon Go Devs Reveal Trailer For Harry Potter: Wizards Unite (VIDEO)
Collecting all the Pocket Monsters was the subject of Niantic’s 2016 title Pokemon Go, and the company was able to turn this premise into a pretty substantial success that continues to this day. Looking to adapt the casual community-based proceedings for the Wizarding World, the mobile developer has since announced their next jump into augmented reality with Harry Potter: Wizards Unite.
While we’ve heard a bit about what we can expect in terms of gameplay, there haven’t been too many in the way of specifics. However, the game’s debut trailer gives a further peek at what the mobile spellcasting could be like when it eventually drops, showing a fellow witch materializing and capturing a Snitch out of the air. Check it out below along with an official description.
Co-published and co-developed by Niantic and WB Games, Harry Potter: Wizards Unite is part of Portkey Games, a games label dedicated to creating video game and mobile experiences inspired by the Wizarding World.
In Harry Potter: Wizards Unite, players will be able to explore real-world surroundings to unravel a global mystery, cast spells, and encounter fantastic beasts and iconic characters along the way.”
Including ‘Wizards Unite,’ quite a few Harry Potter themed games have been apparating into reality over the last year, with the release of Portkey’s ‘Hogwarts Mystery,’ the unveiling of a Trivial Pursuit edition, and the leak and subsequent disappearance of a very intriguing RPG title. Harry Potter: Wizards Unite is expected to hit iOS devices sometime in 2019.
