Real Life Becomes the Wizarding World With a New Harry Potter Game


You may remember back in the summer of 2016 when Pokémon GO became a worldwide phenomenon. I was SUPER into it. I played it for about a year until I got bored and quit hunting Pokémon in Downtown Cedar Rapids. Well, there’s going to be a new program that will turn your real life into a game, and I don’t think I’ll EVER get sick of this one! Prepare yourself for ‘Harry Potter: Wizards Unite!’

According to an announcement Niantic posted yesterday, we can all become real life wizards! The site states, “players will learn spells, explore their real world neighborhoods and cities to discover & fight legendary beasts and team up with others to take down powerful enemies.” Much like Pokémon GO, the game will use AR technology to make it feel like you’re really in the world of Harry Potter. They’ve partnered up with Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, and WB Games to make this idea a reality.

Other than that, we don’t really know too much about “Harry Potter: Wizards Unite’ yet. Niantic says to check their website and follow them on social media for upcoming details. All I know is, I AM SO FREAKING EXCITED. If Hagrid isn’t the one to tell me I’m a wizard, though, I will be a little upset…
