Pokémon Go Niantic Lab's latest Augmented Reality game, based on the Harry Potter Universe is now available for iOS and Android in the US, a day earlier than we expected had the region. Harry Potter: Wizard's Unite is similar to Pokémon Go prompting players to cross a virtual map that lies above the real world and collect magical artifacts.
Niantic and its partner Portkey Games, the new subsidiary of Warner Bros. Games, which is owned by J.K. According to the Rowling franchise, the title will be available on Friday, June 21, in the US and UK as part of the start of the global rollout. It's not clear if it's also available in the UK, but users in the US should have no problem downloading it if they follow the above links to the App Store and Play Store.

Wizards Unite was first in the beta phase Launched as early as May in New Zealand, these markets were the first in the world to have access to the title. Now it seems that Potter fans in the States can get their hands on the game a day earlier.
The early start is not too unexpected, as mobile games are usually launched more frequently and arrive at different times of the day during a typical multi-day launch event in regions. We've seen that with Pokémon Go in the summer of 2016. While June 21 may have been designated as the official global rollout, the US is likely to achieve this early on through a mix of luck and happy mobile app backend Logistics.
