Today we are getting our first look at one of two Harry Potter mobile games that are slated to hit in the next 18 months. This first one, Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery is slated to get fully unveiled at Universal Orlando’s big Harry Potter celebration at the end of this month before rolling out to all the muggles later this spring.
We don’t know too much about the game beyond what has been announced along with the trailer, but you can be sure that it’s going to be a hit for Warner Bros. On the surface, it carries a vague similarity to the Kim Kardashian game, but with a multi-player element and no sense of having become a stupider person for playing it. It’s going to be interesting to see, and even more interesting to see how Warner Bros plans to monetize it.
Today, Jam City, a Los Angeles based mobile games studio, in partnership with Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, revealed new details for Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery — including the game’s first teaser trailer. Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery is the first game in which players can create their own character and experience life as a Hogwarts student. In the roleplaying game, players will create a personalized student avatar, attend classes, learn magical skills, form friendships or rivalries with other students, and make pivotal decisions that will influence their character’s story arc as they traverse their years at Hogwarts and grow as a witch or wizard. The game will launch under Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment’s Portkey Games, a label dedicated to creating gaming experiences inspired by the magic and adventures of J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding World.
