Will Harry Potter: Wizards Unite be the next Pokemon Go?

Will Harry Potter: Wizards Unite be the next Pokemon Go?”

Harry Potter fans have been clutching tightly to their phones ever since the announcement of Harry Potter: Wizards Unite-a follow-up to Niantic's Pokemon GO mobile game. If you're interested in pre-registering for Harry Potter: Wizards Unite, you can do right now, but only on Google Play for the time being.

From the screenshots and videos Niantic dropped today, it's immediately apparent that Harry Potter: Wizards Unite's beta looks a lot better than its Niantic predecessor. This is a mysterious event that has caused all manner of things from the wizarding world to make their way into the Muggle world, including but not limited to "artefacts, creatures, people, and even memories". Some of these Foundables will be protected by "Confoundable" magic, which must be dispelled in order to keep the Foundables safe and send them back to the Wizarding World.

"Your journey begins as a new recruit of the Statute of Secrecy Task Force, established by the Ministry of Magic and the International Confederation of Wizards for the objective of investigating and containing The Calamity", reads the official website. Interactive and its new sub-brand Portkey Games, and like "Pokemon Go", players should be able to "roam the real world collecting power-ups, defending locations and exploring their environment". A player needs to collect food and drinks to replenish Spell Energy.

Niantic Reveals Muggle-Approved AR Game, Harry Potter: Wizards Unite

There's also the chance that Niantic will invite you to the early access program for Wizards Unite, although this isn't guaranteed. The Pokemon Go parallels are front and center; instead of PokeStops, for example, Wizards Unite has greenhouses and inns where you can get various items. In addition, you'll pick up potion ingredients along the way, although the elements of your magical brews will only be available at certain times of day or under specific weather conditions.

There is also the opportunity to team up with fellow wizards (ie, your friends) to play multiplayer battles against villains such as Death Eaters and Dementors - which are like the gyms in Pokemon Go. According to Niantic, players will "step into a full 360-degree Advanced AR immersive experience in places like Ollivander's Wand Shop". However, since the game is now in pre-registration we likely don't have much longer to wait.
