After the huge success of Pokémon Go, the company behind the app has teased a new Harry Potter AR game.

And it has the potential to be bloody brilliant.

Niantic, Inc. has unveiled a trailer for Harry Potter: Wizards Unite, which is due to drop in 2019. Not giving much away, the clip shows a witch apparating into an alleyway and plastering a poster on the wall which says ‘The Wizarding World is at risk of exposure. We need your help’.

What does it all mean? Are we fighting Grindelwald?! Or some futuristic neo-Death Eaters?!! Will we get to run around catching little Nifflers and Hungarian Horntails a la Pokémon Go?!!! We can only hope.

According to a press release, the game will allow users to “unravel a global mystery, cast spells, and encounter fantastic beasts and iconic characters along the way.” 

Check out the trailer below.
