Harry Potter: Wizards Unite

Pokemon Go! was huge two years ago, it took the world by storm by creating a game that gets people moving, interacting and used a very well known and loved game. The company Niantic, who created Pokemon Go, has been developing the game, HarryPotter: Wizards Unite!

 

 

The game will be similar to Pokemon Go!; turning real-world streets, neighborhoods and cities into a global game board, and bringing people together in a shared digital reality. It will be interactive and get you moving and socializing with people who also love Harry Potter. You’ll be learning and casting spells, battling magical creatures, and teaming up with others to take down enemies.

I LOVE Harry Potter, so I’m super pumped about this game! People seemed to have really loved Pokemon Go! I don’t know why people have stopped talking about the game, I just assume because its ran its course and people got tired of it, but I’m glad the company has continued with the Harry Potter project.

Details on the game are pretty scarce, but Niantic did say in September that the company was looking at using audio cues in future AR games because holding up a phone for an extended period of time ‘makes them look like a total doofus,’ So it’s possible that Harry Potter Wizards Unite, will have sound cues. OMG how cool is that!

The game is set to release sometime in 2018, so get ready for more strangers wandering around your neighbourhood and watch out for those people who wander out onto the street without looking! I think that Harry Potter: Wizards Unite will be a very good game and very popular, I personally think it will do better than Pokemon Go! So if you’re a fan of Harry Potter or augmented reality games then this is the game for you!

  1. However, I am not as big a Harry Potter fan as you, not to say that I do not enjoy it by any means, the idea of this sound awesome. Having sort of missed the bus on Pokémon Go, due to having an incompatible phone at the time, perhaps Harry Potter: Wizards Unite will have more success with me. The whole possibility of having sound cues, though will make people look just as doofus like as they shout, or however it’ll work, at invisible creatures or others playing will also bring a nice realism to it. Seeing, as spells are not simply cast by the flick of a wrist in the Harry Potter universe.

  2. This is the best news. I have been a Harry Potter fan since a very young age and the idea of living in the wizarding world, even if it is fake, amazes me.
    Although this game tickles me pink, I lived in Banff when Pokémon Go! was at its height and the game became very dangerous in the small yet brutally busy town. Tourists swarmed the streets, while locals, like me, attempted to get to work or simply to the grocery store, only to be walked into continuously by Pokémon Go! users. The gaming app had foreigners exploring the animal territory, creating dangerous circumstances for themselves and the animals, for the sole purpose of catching them all.
    With tons of breakthroughs in technology, I hope they can come up with a solution to keep the game fun and interesting while keeping the players and their surroundings safe.
    I’m still extremely eager and enthusiastic about the debut of this app.
