From the makers of Pokémon GO, Harry Potter: Wizards Unite is the real-world augmented reality (AR) game inspired by the Wizarding World that puts magic in the hands of players worldwide. Harry Potter: Wizards Unite is co-developed and co-published by Niantic, Inc. and WB Games San Francisco as part of Portkey Games, a label dedicated to creating new Wizarding World mobile and video games inspired by J.K. Rowling's original stories that place players at the center of their own adventure. Realize Your Wizarding Potential A calamity has befallen the wizarding world, causing Foundables—magical artefacts, creatures, people, and even memories—to mysteriously appear in the Muggle world. As a new recruit of the Statute of Secrecy Task Force, you’ll work with witches and wizards from across the globe to solve the mystery of The Calamity and keep magic safe from Muggle eyes.

We’ll give a firmer opinion of the experience once those bugs have been squished though, as that’s hampered our play time considerably so far. We’re confident that Niantic will fix them though, and Wizards Unite will likely stand alongside Pokémon GO as a permanently installed game on your phone.
Harry Potter: Wizards Unite has some good ideas that could become a great game in time, but with a huge amount of ill-conceived baggage that’s repetitive or tedious to play, and relying on a tiresome story to hold it together. While it’ll likely please the fans, this is one that muggles should avoid for now.
Wizards Unite has been a fun, small dose of magic in my daily life for a week, and I plan to continue dipping into the wizarding world each day for the foreseeable future, but other than throwing a bubble around a troll, I’m not sure how engaging all of these mechanics will remain in the long run.
