Romance Feature Coming to Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery Permanently
Posted by Megs

In honor of Valentine’s Day, romance is coming to the mobile game Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery! Players will soon be able to go on dates and “experience romance” in the game. Players were able to go on dates during past events and loved it so much that Jam City have decided to make it a permanent feature, starting February 16th!

Hogwarts Mystery Players who have gotten to Year 5, Chapter 9 will also be able to participate in a Valentine’s Day side quest. Read the full press release to learn more about the new features and Valentine’s events!

Love is in the air…and it’s here to stay. Jam City, a leading mobile entertainment studio, along with Portkey Games, a label from Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, today announced the highly anticipated feature update to the No. 1 most downloaded mobile game at launch, Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery. Beginning February 16, players will now be able to go on dates whenever they please, and experience romance permanently in the game.

First introduced in 2019 during a special in-game Celestial Ball event, the element of romance has since appeared on four different occasions and was consistently met with resounding enthusiasm as players have opted to go on a total of 2.9 million dates with an original character of their choice. The romance feature is the number one most requested update by fans.

 “Our players are so deeply invested and immersed in their actions within the game that we’re not at all surprised just how well this social feature has performed,” says Sarah Wolf, Game Director at Jam City. “We’re constantly interacting with our player base and receive countless emails and messages from them asking to make dating a permanent feature, so we just had to deliver!”

As part of this update, the romance feature will now include “relationship levels” driven by points earned through gameplay. Once enough points have been accrued, players will advance through various “relationship milestones” that trigger subsequent side quests and activities. New and exciting date locations will unlock based on relationship levels. And as so in real life, players also have the ability to go “exclusive” with their love interest, or “break up” if they aren’t feeling the sparks. 

In addition to the dating feature rollout, beginning today, players who have progressed to Year 5, Chapter 9 can experience a Valentine’s Day-themed time-limited side quest event sure to tug at the heartstrings. Students of Hogwarts are thrilled when Professor Dumbledore announces a big Valentine’s Day dance. However, under the organization of Madam Pince, the dance is at risk of being the most boring event of the year with no food or decorations! It is up to the players to make this dance a memorable night for everyone, and to perhaps plant a seed of love between Madam Pince and Mr. Filch.
