There are two major franchises that every ‘90s kid desperately wished were real: Pokemon and Harry Potter. Over a year after Niantic tried to make Pokemon real with the augmented reality mobile game Pokemon Go, they’re continuing their takeover of the nostalgia market with Harry Potter: Wizards Unite.
Harry Potter: Wizards Unite, co-developed by Warner Bros. Interactive, will use the same AR mobile tech as Pokemon Go. The press release reads, “By exploring real-world neighbourhoods and cities across the globe, players will go on adventures, learn and cast spells, discover mysterious artefacts, and encounter legendary beasts and iconic characters.”
There isn’t much more information yet. But suffice it to say that, even though I didn’t need a reason to bully Hufflepuff fans before, now, I have one.
