Harry Potter: Wizards Unite gets trailer and 2019 release window


Pokemon GO-alike coming next year

It's been a year since we first heard that the wizarding world of Harry Potter was being adapted into a new Pokemon GO style game, which is currently being developed by Niantic for release on mobile devices.

Wizards Unite will allow players to battle beasts and cast spells around their neighbourhood in typical augmented reality style. But it looks like the game will need a little more time in the cauldron, as its release window has now been put back from 2018 to sometime in 2019. To tide fans over, Publishers Portkey Games released the first trailer for Wizards Unite, which you can check out below.

Of course there's no gameplay footage as of yet, but the trailer sets the atmosphere for being able to role play that magical Hogwarts Lyfe in your own high street, which I'm sure is a pretty exciting prospect for Potter fans. Whether Wizards Unite reaches the dizzy heights of Pokemon GO upon its launch remains to be seen

Harry Potter: Wizards Unite is currently in development for iOS and Android devices.
