The highly anticipated RPG, Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery is slated to be released on the 25th of April.
Potterheads rejoice! One of the most highly-anticipated mobile games this year is finally within our reach! Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery is going to be available to play on iOS and Android April 25.
Jam City, the developers of the RPG game, also announced that the game will boast an impressive voice cast including original cast members. This includes:
- Dame Maggie Smith (Professor McGonagall)
- Michael Gambon (Professor Dumbledore)
- Gemma Jones (Madam Pomfrey)
- Zoe Wanamaker (Madam Hooch)
- Sally Mortemore (Madam Irma Pince)
- Warwick Davis (Professor Flitwick)
Chris DeWolfe, co-founder and CEO of Jam City, explains why they chose to reprise the original cast.
“Our goal with Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery is to make players really feel for the first time like they’re attending Hogwarts. By including these iconic and incredibly talented actors in the game, we come one step closer to truly giving fans their own Hogwarts experience.”
What to expect:
The game takes place in the 1980’s after Voldemort was first defeated. Therefore, this was before the famous trio – Harry, Ron and Hermione – attend the school. However, fans will get to be like them and attend Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Getting sorted by the Sorting Hat, learning spells and drafting potions with Snape are among the experiences you get to do.
Players also get to duel in the game but must follow specific rules. The mobile game sent out a Tweet explaining step one of five.
