Now Playing: Harry Potter: Wizards Unite - Calling All Wizards Trailer

Harry Potter: Wizards Unite is on the way to iOS and Android devices very soon. While the game doesn't have a firm release date yet, it's already begun rolling out in beta form in select countries, and now co-developers Warner Bros. and Pokemon Go studio Niantic have shared a new live-action trailer hyping up its impending release.

The video, which you can watch above, takes the form of an emergency broadcast from the Ministry of Magic, laying out the premise of the new mobile game. Strange phenomena has begun occurring all around the globe, risking exposing the existence of the wizarding world to Muggles. As part of the Statute of Secrecy Task Force, players will need to contain these traces of magic before they can be discovered.

Much like in the aforementioned Pokemon Go, you'll need to explore the real world to locate these magical items and creatures, known within the game as Foundables. Each of these is trapped by Confoundable magic, and you'll first need to dispel it by casting the appropriate spell before you can send the Foundable back to the wizarding world.

Unlike Pokemon Go, however, Wizards Unite places a greater emphasis on RPG elements. You can brew potions using different ingredients you've collected, level up lengthy skill trees, and swap between different professions. The game also features voice-acted characters who divulge tips and story details. You can read more in our Harry Potter: Wizards Unite impressions.

Wizards Unite is already available in beta form in Australia and New Zealand. You can watch lots of new gameplay footage of the game above. If you're eager to try it yourself but don't live in the region, pre-registration for Wizards Unite is open now on Google Play.
