Harry Potter: Wizards Unite Is a Pokémon GO-like AR Mobile Game

Harry Potter: Wizards Unite Is a Pokémon GO-like AR Mobile Game

With Harry Potter: "Wizards Unite, players that have been dreaming of becoming real life Wizards will finally get the chance to experience J.K. Rowling's Wizarding World", Niantic Labs said in their website.

The movies will join the Potter prequel that Warner Bros.

"Almost five years ago Niantic launched Ingress, our first augmented reality mobile game, turning real-world streets, neighborhoods and cities into a global game board, and bringing people together in a shared digital reality", the press release stated.

Harry Potter: Wizards Unite is co-developed by Niantic and Portkey Games.

Following the extreme success of Pokemon GO, Niantic Labs has its latest augmented reality title that will totally have fans of J.K. Rowling's literary works super thrilled.

Details on the game are pretty scarce, so it's not clear what the game will involve or what its mechanics will be. But it was only after it took on an established brand that it caught the wider public's attention.

Remember the craze of Pokemon Go?

HBO now has the streaming rights for the Harry Potter universe film Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, and has recently streamed Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix and Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, but not at the same time. In addition to making all eight Harry Potter films available via HBO On Demand, HBO Now and HBO Go, the network will air them in a marathon - with Fantastic Beasts tacked on at the end - starting with Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone at 9 a.m. ET/PT on Monday, Jan. 1.

"But I still don't think they will be essential to the experience".
