Niantic sure likes to keep us on our toes. Just a day after the bizarrely-timed Australian Beta, we got another Wizards Unite snippet.
Let’s check it out!
The Wizards Unite trailer videos
This is the fourth trailer for Wizards Unite that Niantic has released.
The first one came on November 14th, 2018. In it we could see a Task Force Member catching a rogue Snitch in a Muggle area in broad daylight.
You can watch the Snitch trailer right here.
On December 20th 2018 came a second video. Here we could see a flock of riderless Nimbus 2000 flying out of control down a Muggle speedway.
The third trailer came in a bit of a roundabout way. This time Niantic and Warner Bros contacted some Wizards Unite Influencers to release the video themselves first. It showed the cutest little Niffler trapped in a Muggle Arcade. This video came out on February 12th, 2019.
Watch the lovely Discombobulated Niffler here.
The kittens and the Snitch
But now, May 5th 2019, we got an unexpected treat. A fourth Teaser Trailer. Which comes as a surprise considering there’s so much game footage available now, both officially released and shared by Beta players in New Zealand and Australia.
You can watch the video right here.
This video is labeled as Trace No.146: Erratic Golden Snitch. The video is, once again, officially Muggleproof to help keep prying eyes away.
The file text in second 6 reads:
WITNESS: Footage discovered in teh cat section of the Miggle Internet. Fortunately witness has mistaken snitch for robotic jianzi.
DAMAGE: Incident resulted in no obvious damage, other than the general over excitement of the two felines involved.
The Footage rundown
In the video we can see a Muggle kitchen and two small kittens. It seems the kittens mistook the Snitch for one of their toys and decided to attempt to catch it as it playfully flies around them. We can even hear the amused Muggle as she records the occurrence.
In the images of the Ministry file we also see an image of the threat level, low, and the registry runes. This time we also have a glyph on the image. It is one of the spells we’ve seen used on Foundables before: Meteolojinx Recanto. This is, in fact, the same glyph we saw in the Nimbus video.
What do you think?
This Trace of magic seems innocuous enough on the surface, but it could pose a real threat to the Statute of Secrecy had that Snitch appeared in a more public area.
The Calamity affects us all, and we must work together to contain it!
If you live in Australia or New Zealand, you are already part of the Task Force. The rest of us need to make sure we are ready when we are called to action. Wizards Unite could drop at any moment. So Keep your eyes peeled, your ears open and your wands ready!
