Jam City has announced new mobile game heading to Android and iOS, Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery. According to Jam City, the game is said to take place:
“in the time between Harry Potter’s birth and his enrollment at Hogwarts, when Nymphadora Tonks and Bill Weasley were students.”
The game is an RPG where you create your own character and get to attend Hogwarts. According to Polygon:
you’ll get to interact with characters like Hagrid, Professor Snape and Professor McGonagall, some of the most memorable characters in the series. Other parts of the game include Hogwarts’ four houses, which players will be sorted into; choosing a pet; learning how to cast a number of spells in beloved classes; and uncovering the myriad mysteries of Hogwarts. (Players also get to embark on something called “relationship quests,” which should satisfy lifelong Potter shippers.)
Today, Jam City, a Los Angeles based mobile games studio, in partnership with Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, revealed new details for Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery — including the game’s first teaser trailer. Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery is the first game in which players can create their own character and experience life as a Hogwarts student. In the roleplaying game, players will create a personalized student avatar, attend classes, learn magical skills, form friendships or rivalries with other students, and make pivotal decisions that will influence their character’s story arc as they traverse their years at Hogwarts and grow as a witch or wizard. The game will launch under Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment’s Portkey Games, a label dedicated to creating gaming experiences inspired by the magic and adventures of J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding World.
