Harry Pot­ter is get­ting yet an­other in­car­na­tion. Af­ter the best-sell­ing books, block­buster films and a hit play, the beloved wiz­ard stars in a new mo­bile game.

Niantic Labs, the com­pany that turned the world into a gi­ant Poke­mon hunt­ing ground in 2016, has fi­nally re­vealed new de­tails about its long-awaited fol­low-up.

Harry Pot­ter: Wizards Unite is set to drop later this year, but a hand­ful of jour­nal­ists got the chance to play a small demo.

Ac­cord­ing to the lucky few, it shares many of the char­ac­ter­is­tics of Poke­mon Go but is a more com­plex game over­all. There’s a map that cor­re­sponds to the real world, and play­ers are tasked with trav­el­ling around on foot.
