Wizards Unite is clearly built around the same style of augmented-reality gameplay (albeit with a Harry Potter twist), and numerous game's elements even have direct analogs in Pokemon Go: Fortresses are Harry Potter's equivalent of Gyms, for instance, while Portkeys serve the same function as Eggs, among many other examples. The game is now available for free via respective app stores.
The game draws in on Pokemon go in the sense that you have to collect items. Both, Harry Potter and Constance Pickering work at the Ministry of Magic, where they have found traces of magical energy detected throughout the Muggle world.
Niantic's acquisition of Sensible Object demonstrates the strong position of the AR gaming studio, which has moved from the trendsetting "Pokémon Go" to the highly anticipated "Harry Potter: Wizards Unite", which is already receiving rave reviews. The game has been launched in 19 languages.
Similarly to Pokemon Go, Wizards Unite players are required to use Global Positioning System and augmented reality to go around the world (whichever area you're in) and search for other characters (including Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them), creatures, and other magical items as a new recruit of the Statute of Secrecy Task Force. Players can discover artefacts, cast spells and encounter characters from the Potter films and prequel movie series Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them the developers said.
