After getting huge success with last year’s Pokemon Go video game, Niantic wants to strike gold twice by developing a new game based on the Harry Potter franchise.
Niantic announced the new game is called ‘Harry Potter: Wizards Unite’ and it is again going to make use of augmented reality. Again, it will be another app for smartphone devices.
It will make use of different magic spells as you go around your real life neighborhood to try and become a great wizard. You can discover big and powerful beasts to battle too.
Niantic is working with both Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, and WB Games to make this game feel as authentic as it can be. There’s still no release date for the game, but it’s possible it could come out next year.
