Wizards Unite is basically that game, and it's in pre-registration right now at the Google Play Store. Harry Potter: Wizards Unite is expected to drop later this year. Some of these Foundables will be protected by "Confoundable" magic, which must be dispelled in order to keep the Foundables safe and send them back to the Wizarding World.

These are "artefacts, creatures, people and even memories" from Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts books that must be found by new recruits from the Statute of Secret Task Force - and that's you.

Developed by Pokémon Go creator Niantic in collaboration with Warner's Portkey Games label, Wizards Unite overlays the wizarding world on the real world, asking players to walk around their neighbourhoods with their phones to uncover traces of magic. Each will have specific abilities that will compliment gameplay in groups when teaming up for challenges.

Players can restore spell-casting energy by heading to Inns to find food and drinks and to gather ingredients to create potions.

There will also be a Wizards Unite version of Pokémon GO's gyms, which are called Fortresses. But where Pokemon Go is largely about collecting, Wizards Unite is focused on immersing you in its world, from a voice-acted story to involved RPG-like skill trees. These ingredients can be found on the Map, varying by the environment, weather, and time of day, as well as in specially designated Greenhouses. Visiting in-game Fortresses will enable players to take on a series of Wizarding Challenges, which include face-offs against a host of enemies. "These real-time multiplayer battles against unsafe foes encourage players to join forces with fellow witches and wizards to take on higher level threats and unlock rare magical rewards". There will also be Portkeys, which you reach by unlocking Portmanteaus, to get a look into iconic Harry Potter locations. You'll be able to interact with those characters and using AR, view them in the real world in full 360-degree glory.

There's also the chance that Niantic will invite you to the early access program for Wizards Unite, although this isn't guaranteed.

While there's still A LOT of details yet to come, we are beginning to see the first glimpse of the in-game UI and elements of game play.
