Harry Potter AR Game Confirmed!

All, Gaming, Previews, Releases & Sales

That’s right, our favorite magician Harry Potter is becoming a playable character once more. The creators of Pokemon Go are back with another project that has success written all over it.

In case you’ve played Pokemon Go, you definitely understand the concept. AR is basically the same gaming style used for Pokemon Go. You venture into real-life areas which resemble something entirely different on your mobile screen.

What Harry Potter AR Game Will Look Like

The gampleay of Harry Potter: Wizards Unite is similar to that of Pokemon Go. You will venture with your Android supporting device into real-life areas which will be filled with various challenges.

Those can span from fighting magical AI enemies or dueling against other human wizards in the area. There will also be countless spells and epic quests throughout the journey.


Although we can’t say for sure, Harry Potter: Wizards Unite will most likely have the same quality of graphics as Pokemon Go. The real attraction of AR mobile games are not really the visuals anyway.

As long as they stand true to the atmosphere of the Harry Potter universe, it will probably be more than enough to attract many gamers.

Release Date

The release date for this title is still unknown. There have been some suggestions by fans that it’s a few months away, but there’s no official confirmation yet. We just hope that they will polish the game properly so that we don’t end up fighting bugs instead of proper opponents.
