Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and mobile developer Jam City have revealed the first teaser trailer for upcoming mobile game Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery. Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery will launch this spring to iOS, Android, and Amazon devices. It’s being produced under Warner Bros.’ Portkey Games label, which is dedicated to creating games based on the Harry Potter universe.
Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery is an RPG that lets you create and customize your own Hogwarts student. Attend classes, form friendships and rivalries, and learn how to cast spells. Your student will join one of the four houses as they go on adventures and solve mysteries.
Fans will get their first look at Hogwarts Mystery later this month during A Celebration of Harry Potter at Universal Studios in Orlando, Florida. The event takes place January 26-28. Jam City will host two panels that go behind the scenes of creating the game. Hogwarts Mystery will have its own booth with members of the development team. The booth will also let fans play the game for the first time.
“Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery is a role playing experience about magic, friendship, and life as a student at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry,” said Chris DeWolfe, co-founder and CEO of Jam City. “We can’t wait to give fans a first look at the game at A Celebration of Harry Potter, and this spring players will be able to explore Hogwarts fully in their journey toward becoming a witch or wizard.”
If you’re curious, Hogwarts Mystery takes place before the events of the first Harry Potter film and book, when Nymphadora Tonks and Bill Weasley were students.
Note that Hogwarts Mystery is a different mobile game than the also recently announced Wizards Unite, which will be a Pokémon GO-like AR game.
Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery will launch this spring. Look to the A Celebration of Harry Potter event to reveal more information later this month.
