SALT LAKE CITY — Fellow wizards, ready your wands.
Magic has leaked into the Muggle world, and it’s your job to contain it.
That’s the storyline of the new “Harry Potter: Wizards Unite” augmented reality game being released this summer by the creators of "Pokemon Go," and today we’ve got a new look at the game.
“Help keep Muggles nonethewiser. Help contain the calamity. Help save our world,” the trailer says.
