Remember when we were all outside throwing Poké Balls and ‘catching them all’?
Well.. prepare for the next chapter that promises to be bigger and better than Pokemon GO.
Harry Potter: Wizards Unite is being developed by the same people who made Pokemon GO and already it sounds pretty impressive! A spokesman from Niantic saying “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.”
There were rumours that the success of Pokemon GO would spark a new range of AR mobile games.. but so far that hasn’t been the case until now.
According to Niantic, Harry Potter: Wizards Unite will be influenced by Niantic’s cult classic game Ingress, which allows people to collect boosts, defend locations, and explore their environment, mixing the real world and the digital. In Wizards Unite, players will fight “legendary beasts and team up with others to take down powerful enemies,” which we can assume to be Death Eaters and Lord Voldemort.
