This New Harry Potter Mobile Game Is Like Pokémon GO But With Magic

The giant that is the Harry Potter franchise has managed to amaze fans again with the announcement that they are releasing a new, virtual-reality game.

The game's concept is pretty similar to the Pokemon Go game: players are expected to find portals and other traces of magic in the real world.

The game's website states, "Harry Potter: Wizards Unite combines content and characters you know and love from both the original Harry Potter series and the Fantastic Beasts films in a unique Wizarding World experience."

The premise of the game is pretty simple: an unnamed calamity has befallen the wizard 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."
