Never Got Your Hogwarts Letter? This New Harry Potter Game Will Make Up for It
The game lets you attend the wizarding school.
There’s no need to head to Platform 9 ¾ to catch the Hogwarts Express, you can immerse yourself in the experience straight from your couch (or even on the go). Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery, a new mobile game, lets players become students at the wizarding school, even if they’re muggles.
Users will create a Hogwarts student character and experience all that the school has to offer. They can attend classes, master spells, learn from Hogwarts’s famous professors (like Snape, Dumbledore, and McGonagall), and make lifelong friends, just like Ron, Hermione, and Harry. Users will also be sorted into a Hogwarts house, so there’s no need for you to click on any more “Which House Do You Belong In” quizzes.
Unfortunately, you won’t be able to interact with Harry Potter himself, as the game is set prior to his arrival at Hogwarts. However, the creators emphasize that it’s “set in the wizarding world that we are familiar with from the books and films.”
The game will launch later this spring, both on the App Store and Google Play. It will be free to download and play, too. If you’re wondering if it has J.K. Rowling’s blessing, it does! It’s being released under Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment’s Portkey Games, a label dedicated to the author’s creation.
You can get updates on the game by pre-registering on the game’s site.
