‘Harry Potter’ Version of ‘Pokemon Go’ Coming this Summer

Last year we first heard talk of a Harry Potter version of Pokemon Go that would be released. They didn’t say when, just that they were working on it and to expect it sometime in 2019. They released a trailer which you can watch below.

We now know that Harry Potter: Wizards Unite will be coming out this summer. Warner Bros. Entertainment CEO Kevin Tsujihara spoke to the Los Angeles Times in an interview and stated that Harry Potter: Wizards Unite will be coming out this summer. Co-developed by WB Games San Francisco and Niantic they have strategically set this up to emulate the popular release of Pokemon Go which was launched summer of 2016. The game was an immediate hit due to the fact that many parents and kids were out of school and on vacation, giving them ample time to walk around and catch Pokemon.

We don’t know a whole lot about the gameplay other than it will involve some sort of augmented reality. From their post on instagram it appears that you will be catching creatures from the Magical Beasts and Where to Find them franchise.

Keep Going!

I will be downloading the game when it comes out but if it drains my battery like Pokemon Go does I can probably live without it. Unless they make like a wand that doubles as a battery charger and a peripheral for the game. THAT would be neat.
