Niantic and WB Games have unveiled the first teaser trailer for Harry Potter: Wizards Unite, the upcoming augmented reality (AR) mobile game that will put magic in the hands of players worldwide. The game will launch in 2019.
Co-published and co-developed by Niantic and WB Games, Harry Potter: Wizards Unite is part of Portkey Games, a games label dedicated to creating video game and mobile experiences inspired by the Wizarding World.
In Harry Potter: Wizards Unite, players will be able to explore real-world surroundings to unravel a global mystery, cast spells, and encounter fantastic beasts and iconic characters along the way.
The new logo for the game was also revealed. The logo gives us a few clues on what we can expect from the mysterious new mobile game. There are three familiar wands included in the logo, which a lot of you will spot as belonging to Harry, Ron and Hermione. The three friends’ wands unite at the top in a burst of light, suggesting a combined force of harmony.
The silver lettering is all scuffed, almost as if a ‘fantastic beast’ might have been trying to attack it, and did you notice the ‘S’ in ‘Wizards’ looks a lot like the one in the Fantastic Beasts logo? It looks like the game will be infusing elements from both Fantastic Beasts and Harry Potter.
