Niantic and WB Games have unveiled the first teaser trailer for Harry Potter: Wizards Unite, the upcoming augmented reality (AR) mobile game that will put magic in the hands of players worldwide. The highly anticipated game will launch in 2019.
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.
The teaser doesn’t give us much to go on. We see a young lady apparate and deal with a snitch dealing some damage ina clearly muggle area so maybe the game will have some kind of narrative goal for the players. With everything Wizarding World-centric right now with the release of Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald this teaser came at the right time to capitalise on the hugely successful world that J.K, Rowling created all those years ago.
Will it be as successful as everything else Potter related? Only time will tell. Stay tuned to GamEir for more information on Harry Potter: Wizards Unite.
