Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery mobile game explores the school before Harry's arrival
A new mobile game, Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery, teases some early gameplay in its first trailer today.
Hogwarts Mystery is the first of two games by Warner Bros studio Portkey Games, also working on Wizards Unite, the next AR game from Pokemon Go creators Niantic.
In Hogwarts Mystery you attend the school in the period between Harry’s birth and his own first year, so your classmates will include Nymphadora Tonks and Bill Weasley. Of course some of the teaching staff have been around for decades so Snape, McGonagall and Hagrid will also be knocking about the grounds.
There’s no release date yet for Hogwarts Mystery, however developer Jam City has said there will be big plot arcs and smaller sidequests such as romantic and relationship storylines.
