A Pokemon Go-style Harry Potter game is HAPPENING

After the worldwide frenzy that was Pokemon Go, developer Niantic is taking another jab at augmented reality games with Harry Potter: Wizards Unite.

As shown on the teaser and on its website, traces of magic have been popping up across Muggle cities, meaning that the risk of the wizarding world getting exposed is at an all-time high.

Players are tasked with containing various magical anomalies (like a Flying Snitch) with their ‘lightning fast wand reflexes’ – a game mechanic which takesĀ inspo from ‘Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them’.
