Dust off the Sorting Hat and get back on your broomsticks, Harry Potter fans, because it’s time to return to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry! Today mobile game studio Jam City revealed more details for its new “Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery” roleplaying game, which was first announced back in December.
“Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery” will be available for most devices, and allows gamers to “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” throughout their Hogwarts experience, as they travel down the path to becoming a witch or wizard.
Essentially, “Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery” is the first game in which players can “create their own character and experience life as a Hogwarts student.” Jam City also released the exciting first teaser trailer for the game, which will make its playable debut at Universal Orlando’s A Celebration of Harry Potter event next week.
