The Harry Potter universe is still one of the most popular franchises out there. What started as a successful book series turned into one of the most successful movie franchises of all time. One that’s continuing with the now 8th book The Cursed Child. But, it goes even further beyond that, as the video games for Harry Potter have been numerous and varied, and despite not being around in force the last few years, there has been a resurgence of sorts. One of which made its reveal today via Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery.
This will be a mobile RPG created by Jam City, and will be published by Warner Bros via Portkey, which is their recently created Harry Potter label. In the game, you’ll actually get to create your very own Hogwarts student, and get to live in the castle for several years as if you were truly a member of the school.
“Along the way players will participate in all of the magical classes and activities they have come to love”, states press release for the game.
Things you can expect are classic classes from the series like Potions and Defense Against The Dark Arts. There’s even going to be a Dueling Club like from Chamber Of Secrets. Also, to add even more realism to the game, many of the professors from Hogwarts will be in Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery.
Now, obviously, there’s going to be a storyline for you to follow, as this is an RPG and the game is called “Hogwarts Mystery”, but what exactly the mystery is isn’t known at present.
It should be noted that an entirely different Harry Potter experience is being made by Niantic, who are the team behind Pokemon GO. But their title is an AR game. So that’s going to be an entirely different experience.
