While waiting for the new ‘Fantastic Beast and Where to Find Them’ movie to come out, you might be pleased to know that game studio Jam City has partnered up with Warner Bros. to create a new Harry Potter-inspired game for Android and iOS.
Harry Potter Hogwarts Mystery Uses RPG Mechanics
According to the developers, the upcoming Harry Potter game, dubbed Hogwarts Mystery, will have RPG-style mechanics, allowing the players to develop their characters as they see fit. The game’s timeline is set between Harry Potter’s birth and his admission to Hogwarts.
Although the game studio left out all of the famous characters we’ve grown accustomed to like Ron, Hermione, Hagrid or Snape, you’ll be able to rub elbows with Bill Weasley and Nymphadora Tonks.
As for the game itself, according to the devs, as a wizard/witch freshman, you will be able to attend various classes, learn new spells and skills, hone those you’ve already know, and of course, make new friends.
Unfortunately, Jam City is keeping a tight lid on this project, meaning that’s about everything we know about the game’s mechanics. Also, the game, which is scheduled to come out this spring, will be free to download and play on Google Play/iOS store with in-game purchases.
However, if you don’t want to wait that long for the game to come, you can always go to the upcoming A Celebration of Harry Potter event, where you’ll be able to buy Harry Potter inspired merchandise and, of course, talk to the team behind the game.
According to Christ DeWolfe, the founder, and CEO of Jam City, Harry Potter Hogwarts Mystery will be filled with Easter Eggs, some about Harry and some regarding the brooding story weaved by J.K. Rowling.
