Calling all Harry Potter fans! Are you finally ready for a mobile Harry Potter game?
Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery, the upcoming Harry Potter game developed by Jam City, released its official teaser trailer today. Players will be able to create their own character, choose their own house, and experience life as a Hogwarts student.
This game will be the first under the new label from Warner Bros. Interactive, Portkey Games. Portkey Games will presumably be handling more Harry Potter games in the future, as Warner Bros. has described them as “dedicated to creating experiences inspired by the magic and adventures of J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding World.”
The teaser trailer for Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery shows many familiar faces (Snape, Dumbledore, McGonagall, even someone who might be Bill Weasley) so it’s safe to say that the game takes place in a period before the books.
Without the threat of Voldemort looming over your shoulder, players will be able to experience everything Hogwarts has to offer sans the threat of death by Dark Lord. You’ll be able to learn spells, explore the castle, create powerful potions—it’s any Harry Potter fan’s dream come true.
Considering there has yet to be a really good Harry Potter game, a lot of interest is focused on this mobile title. Undoubtedly, many fans will pick through it with a critical eye. However, the small glimpses we’ve had into the game so far appear to be promising. Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery also seems to be story-driven and to focus on adventuring, which is refreshing from the repetition of most mobile games.
While the release date hasn’t been officially announced yet, the game is slated for 2018. You can even pre-register for the game on GooglePlay right now.
