SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. (KTVU) - The long-teased Harry Potter mobile game finally dropped in the U.S. Thursday and 'Potterheads' across the country got the chance to explore the Wizarding World.
First announced in 2017, the developers of Pokemon Go brought the magical world to life— well in digital form that is, in "Harry Potter: Wizards Unite."
The augmented reality game was slated to launch in the U.S. and U.K. on Friday but it arrived a day earlier.
An estimate from Sensor Tower says the game has been downloaded 400,000 times and counting in the last 24 since it was rolled out in the new territories.
Harry Potter fans in Australia and New Zealand may have mastered the game by now as it was released to them last month.
CNET described the game perfectly calling it a mix between the Wizarding World and Pokemon Go.
