Harry Potter fans will rejoice once they hear, “Harry Potter: Wizards Unite,” a new, augmented reality, cellphone game releases this Friday.

The game is expected to roll out by Niantic, the same creators of the Pokemon Go.


According to a recent tweet from the creators, “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.”

As the game slowly becomes available worldwide, there is a chance it could take some time before it rolls into our neck of the woods.

According to The Verge, “the core activity in ‘Wizards Unite’ involves collecting a mix of artifacts and sometimes saving notable characters from the series who are stuck in a bad situation … From there, you play a little tracing mini-game, to evoke the casting of a spell and then collect the item or free your friend. Afterward, you’re able to add that item or character to your collections book, earn experience points, and level up.”
