Harry Potter: Wizards Unite Augmented Reality Game Launches On Friday

You’re a wizard Harry….and Barry, and Larry. You’re all wizards.

Back in March, we revealed that a new Harry Potter game was on the way and boy does time go fast, as it’s coming out this Friday. If you’ve read the books, seen the films and visited the Warner Bros. Studio Tour, well now you get to experience the world of Potter in a whole new way, on your phone.

The game is made by the same folk that created Pokemon Go and plays in a similar fashion with some added magical twists. Players will explore the muggle world using their mobile phone and Harry Potter characters and magical creatures will pop up along the way.

In the game, you’ll play the part of a new wizard trainee worth with the Statute of Secrecy Task Force. Magical artefacts and creatures have been spread across the world and it’s your job to round them up. Items may include famous pieces from the films and books such as the Sword of Gryffindor turning up in your office or the Sorting Hat at the local Tesco.

Created by Niantic who are responsible for the mobile smash-hit Pokemon Go, the game is expected to attract a legion of Harry Potter fans. The game will arrive in the UK and US on Friday, and then the rest of the world but there’s no confirmed date for that.

With two new mobile games from Nintendo also on the way this year in the form of Mario Kart: World Tour and Dr. Mario World, mobile gamers aren’t going to be short on games for that daily commute.

Download it on Friday? Let us know in the Comments below.
