Niantic, the team behind the popular Pokemon Go game is now working to launch a Harry Potter game titled Harry Potter: Wizards Unite. This game will pose you as a new recruit to the Statute of Secrecy Task Force and your job is to contain the chaotic magic outbreak.
The game has been in beta testing and was released early for the residents of New Zealand and Australia but will be made available to the rest of the world as soon as this Friday.
The worldwide launch of Harry Potter: Wizards Unite begins this Friday, June 21! Keep your eyes peeled and wand ready for more information as the game goes live in your region soon. #WizardsUnite pic.twitter.com/ckk4s4mi8a

You will be on the search for Foundables which will act as a combination of Pokemon and Pokestops found in Pokemon Go. You will need to search them and then take them from the muggle world back to the wizarding world. You will also have an arsenal of spells at your disposal.
There’s also the option of taking part in real-time battles in the game and you can challenge your enemies before you take on the antagonists in the game. The app interface is said to be similar to that of Pokemon Go but it remains to be seen if this game will achieve the similar heights Pokemon Go did during its early days
Harry Potter: Wizards Unite will be available for iOS and Android on June 21.
