The Pokémon GO of Harry Potter
Harry Potter: Wizards Unite presents a new story from the Harry Potter world. In London, a catastrophe happened and spread memories, objects, and creatures around the world. Wizards from England do not handle to solve the problem alone, so the British Ministry of Magic decide to convene wizards from all around the world to help to collect the spreading items – called “returnable objects” – to protect the Wizarding World from the Muggles.
It is the second launch of Portkey Games, from Warner Bros. Games that promises to develop games inspired by the Wizarding World. The first of them was Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery, in 2018.
