Posted by Megs

It has been announced that multiple Harry Potter actors will be reprising their roles by doing voice-overs for the new Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery game releasing this Spring. Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery will be available to download on Android and iOS on April 25th.

Dame Maggie Smith is returning to voice Professor McGonagall, alongside Warwick Davis as Professor Flitwick, Sally Mortemore as Irma Prince, Gemma Jones as Madam Pomfrey, Zoe Wanamaker as Madam Hooch and Michael Gambon will be back as Hogwarts headmaster, Professor Dumbledore.

“Our goal with Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery is to make players really feel for the first time like they’re attending Hogwarts,” Chris DeWolfe, co-founder and CEO of Jam City, said. “By including these iconic and incredibly talented actors in the game, we come one step closer to truly giving fans their own Hogwarts experience.”

First Trailer for New Mobile Game ‘Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery’
Posted by Megs

Another new Harry Potter mobile game has been announced by Pottermore this morning. This new game, Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery, gives you the opportunity to experience life as a Hogwarts student! You can pre-register to play on the official website! You can also follow on Facebook and Twitter for updates.

Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery is the first game in which players can create their own character and experience life as a Hogwarts student. The game will launch under Portkey Games, a new label dedicated to creating experiences inspired by the magic and adventures of J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding World.

According to Pottermore:

The mobile game – part of the new label Portkey Games, from Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment – will invite you to join Hogwarts in the 1980s, and will feature many of your favourite things from the Harry Potter stories. These include spells, classes, characters and much more. Although at this point Harry wouldn’t have been old enough to be at the school himself, we think you may recognise a few former students and staff – from Nymphadora Tonks to Bill Weasley to Professor McGonagall.

The role-playing experience will invite you to create your own personalised student avatar, and make key decisions that will impact your story. The trailer wisely reminds us of Dumbledore’s words: ‘It is our choices, Harry, that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities.’

As the game continues, so will your Hogwarts education, your magical skills and relationships with other characters, so make sure to make every decision count. In other words – don’t choose a Crabbe and Goyle-style path, eh?

Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery will be available via the App Store, Google Play and the Amazon Appstore in 2018.
