The Wizarding World is under the risk to be exposed in new trailer of Harry Potter: Wizards Unite

The Wizarding World is under the risk to be exposed to Muggles on the new trailer of the game Harry Potter: Wizards Unite. In a “Muggle-proof” warn, the Ministry of Magic convenes Wizards and Witches to the action, warning that traces of magic are showing up around the world.

The new trailer gathers scenes previously revealed, as Niffler messing around in a shop window and a Golden Snitch being chased by a cat, besides a Death Eaters’ invasion at a soccer field. The narrator warns that the magic is to be revealed to the Muggles’ eyes unless the Wizards act immediately and together. The video also asks the player to get their wands ready to stop the “Calamity” – an event which spread Wizarding objects, creatures, people and memories around the Muggle world -, returning the “Returnable Objects” to their rights places.

Developed by Niantic, from Pokémon GO, Harry Potter: Wizards Unite follows the same logic of the Nintendo little monsters game, bringing augmented reality elements wherein the player needs to interact with the real world to catch and return the pieces from the Wizarding World to places Muggle-vision proof.

The game has no release date yet, but it is already in test phase in Australia and New Zealand.
