It’s finally time to join the Ministry of Magic and take on the mysterious ‘Calamity’ that is taking over the world as the creators of mobile gaming phenomenon Pokemon Go unleashed a new game that features Harry Potter and other characters from the wizarding world made famous in best-selling books and blockbuster movies.
The game marks the second offering from Portkey Games; the official label for games inspired by the Wizarding World. Harry Potter: Wizards Unite was co-developed by Pokemon Go developer Niantic Inc and AT&T Inc’s Warner Bros, which owns the rights to develop entertainment based on author J.K. Rowling’s popular Harry Potter series.
As for the story of the game itself; Wizards Unite tasks you to work together with friends to try and contain the Calamity (with the things you bump into known as ‘Foundables’) and to skill up as you go along. For example, you can navigate the world to pick up ingredients to make potions, cast spells, and oh so much more. Working in a team helps you solve your tasks even more effectively.
“You see all your favorite characters and artifacts, whether it’s the Sorting Hat, or Buckbeak, or whether it’s Harry himself or Newt Scamander,” said Jonathan Knight, studio head of Warner Bros. Games San Francisco. There is also a new story that unfolds within the game, Knight said. “There’s a crafting game where you’re collecting potion ingredients and creating potions and using them to be a better wizard,” he said.
