Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery is now available to download now from the Apple App Store and Google Play.
Have you ever wanted to be a student at Hogwarts? Well, now you can be, sort of, in the new mobile game, Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery.
Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery has been developed by Jam City in partnership with Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, and published under the Portkey Games label, a new catch-all for interactive mobile experiences inspired by J.K. Rowling’s wizarding world.
Set in the 1980s, the game lets players create their own character, and experience life as a Hogwarts student by joining one of its four houses.
Players can design their own avatar, learn magical skills, and craft potions as they progress through a narrative adventure that includes voice acting from Dame Maggie Smith as Professor McGonagall.
Chris DeWolfe, co-founder and CEO of Jam City, apparently said:
“There are so few moments where a mobile entertainment company has the chance to truly bring magic into the world and we’ve been thrilled by the amazing response our game has already received from Harry Potter fans everywhere. We at Jam City have been working hard to ensure that any aspiring witch or wizard can enter Hogwarts through their smartphones and tablets and begin their magical journeys.”
Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery is free to play – and probably expensive to complete – and available now from the Apple App Store and Google Play.
