The Harry Potter Mobile Game Comes Out Friday, And Everyone Is Ready To Be A Wizard
There's a new Harry Potter mobile game coming out on Friday that is basically Pokemon Go for wizards. "Harry Potter Wizards Unite," is an augmented reality game and it combines characters you know and love from both the original Harry Potter series and the Fantastic Beasts films. According to the game's website, Wizards Unite:
A calamity has befallen the wizarding world, causing artefacts, creatures, people, and even memories to mysteriously appear in the Muggle world. Witches and wizards from across the globe must come together to solve the mystery of The Calamity, overcome the confounding chaotic magic that surrounds these “Foundables,” and return them to their rightful place, keeping them safe from Muggle eyes.
Your journey begins as a new recruit of the Statute of Secrecy Task Force, established by the Ministry of Magic and the International Confederation of Wizards for the purpose of investigating and containing The Calamity.
There are so many people who love the Harry Potter books/movies. I mean it's so popular that there is a Harry Potter Land at Universal Studios. Instead of traveling to Universal Studios and paying a good chunk of change to to get into the Wizarding World, with Wizards Unite, the Wizarding World comes to you!
Again, this is very similar to Pokemon Go. I think that the Wizards Unite craze might last longer than Pokemon Go did. That being said, when you play, Wizards Unite, be smart. There were several reports of people playing Pokemon Go who played while driving, and fell off curbs, sidewalks, and other places because they were not paying attention to where they are walking. Just be smart, know your surroundings, and don't forget about real life things going on around you in the Muggle world.
The game is free to play and download on your smart phone and will be available in the U.S. on Friday, June 21st. This is the moment that millions of Muggles have been waiting on: the chance for them to be a "real life" wizard or witch. Will you be downloading Harry Potter Wizards Unite?
