Late last month, the creators of Pokemon Go released a new augmented reality game for Harry Potter fans called “Harry Potter : Wizards Unite”. With the combination of Google mapping and augmented reality, players will see Harry Potter characters “appear” in the real world around them as they play the role of a new recruit in the Statute of Secrecy Task Force to help solve a mystery.
It has now launched in the US and Canada to lots of great reviews. Pokemon Go was such a hit when it released in 2016 because it allowed people to walk around their communities, meet other people playing the game, and enjoy the outdoors. WB Games is hoping this game will become just a popular. Our summer students downloaded it recently and have been playing ever since. They’re hoping more Harry Potter fans will get on board and join in the fun. What a great summer activity!
