    Collaborating with Niantic, the company behind the Pokémon GO phenomenon, WB Games revealed gameplay details of its upcoming mobile AR game Harry Potter: Wizards Unite in a press release today.

    Featuring content and characters from both the original Harry Potter and the Fantastic Beasts series, the game will have you explore the real world following a calamity to collect ingredients that can be used to brew helpful Potions, discover Traces of magic and Foundables that only appear in real-world locations like parks, municipal buildings, libraries and monuments. Akin to the gym battles in Pokémon GO are the Wizarding Challenges which take place in Fortresses and involve real-time multiplayer battles pitting you against foes like Death Eaters and soul-sucking Dementors. You can even team up with friends to tackle those foes and collect rarer magical Foundables from within the Fortress walls.

    Below is an excerpt from the press release:

    Harry Potter: Wizards Unite is coming to iOS and Android devices sometime in 2019. You can pre-register for the game on Google Play.

    I can’t wait for them to literally strangle my character and demand cash to save them, again!

    in my room?
    Even though this is far fetched, but I hope they don't turn this into another cash grab.
    Although, I am really excited for the new HP game that got it's trailer leaked, all my hopes on a decent HP game is on that one.

    I'm surprised Harry Potter is still relevant in 2019.

    They should make a vr dueling game or something. Maybe a goblet of fire type deal. I'd shell out the money for it
