Harry Potter: Wizards Unite

Harry Potter: Wizards Unite made $300,000 in 24 hours

That’s only counting UK and US users. It’s not Pokémon Go money ($2 million on day one), but $300,000 is substantial for a free game with around 400,000 installs so far. I’m sure Niantic is pleased.

Harry Potter: Wizards Unite is an augmented reality mobile game, similar to its more popular cousin, but with more RPG elements and story. This time, you’ll be wandering around the neighbourhood searching for Foundables instead of Pokémon; things, people, and creatures from the Wizarding World that have found their way into your mundane Muggle one.

You collect your Foundables in a Registry (Pokédex) and can compete in Wizarding Challenges (Raids) at Fortresses (Gyms). Inns are also comparable to Pokéstops and Portkeys work like Eggs. It’s not just Pokémon Go with wizards, though, Wizards Unite also has RPG elements, such as choosing a Profession, unlocking abilities on skill trees, and a system for brewing potions. There’s also a fully-voiced plot that gives meaning to your actions throughout the game.

Harry Potter: Wizards Unite is currently available in South Africa (not on my phone, but maybe yours?) from Google Play and the App Store.
