As the game slowly becomes available worldwide, there is a chance it could take some time before it rolls into our neck of the woods.

According to The Verge, “the core activity in ‘Wizards Unite’ involves collecting a mix of artifacts and sometimes saving notable characters from the series who are stuck in a bad situation … From there, you play a little tracing mini-game, to evoke the casting of a spell and then collect the item or free your friend. Afterward, you’re able to add that item or character to your collections book, earn experience points, and level up.”
