Well isn’t this magical? The first trailer for Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery, the upcoming mobile game from Jam City and Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment’s Portkey Games, teases the witchy, wizardy adventures that the entire world is about to embark on when this game goes live. It’s basically a role-playing game inspired by the wizarding world created by J.K. Rowling and will allow fans everywhere the opportunity to create their own character who gets to play in this world. You can find out more about it here.
While the idea is brilliant, this first look at the execution is a little underwhelming. The animation style looks a bit outdated already, but honestly, that’s not the selling point. This thing is going to make loads of Knuts, Sickles, and Galleons. As EW reports, “the title will officially launch on the App Store and Google Play later this spring, but will first be introduced at the ‘A Celebration of Harry Potter’ event at Universal Studios in Orlando, lasting from Jan. 26th-28th.” And I’m sure you’re going to want to pre-register and stay up to date on the latest information, so you can do so here.
