Niantic Games have had massive success with the release of Pokémon Go, and now they’ve announced that they are developing a new mobile game for Harry Potter fans.

Harry Potter: Wizards Unite will bring the world of the boy wizard in true AR form. Just like in the movie and the books, you have the chance to cast and learn spells and explore your worlds where you can fight and duel other beasts and enemies.

"We're incredibly excited to announce this next step in the evolution of AR mobile entertainment. With Harry Potter: Wizards Unite, players that have been dreaming of becoming real life Wizards will finally get the chance to experience J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding World. Players will learn spells, explore their real world neighborhoods and cities to discover & fight legendary beasts and team up with others to take down powerful enemies," the company said in a blog post.

Niantic will partner with Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and WB Games San Francisco to bring the game to life.

There’s no word yet as to when it will release, but Potterheads everywhere are already excited to play it.
