First 'Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery' iOS gameplay revealed

First 'Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery' iOS gameplay revealed

Hogwarts Mystery, players will be able to create their own witch or wizard and choose to be sorted into either Gryffindor, Slytherin, Ravenclaw or Hufflepuff.

Unless you have a wand to cast a spell on the creators to speed things up...

If Pokemon GO is anything to go by, the augmented reality aspect will work with your phone's Global Positioning System and camera to apply a "Harry Potter" filter to the real world around you - but that's only speculation at this point.

The game takes place during the 1980's when Bill Weasley and Nymphadora Tonks were at Hogwarts, before Harry was born.

The game is coming to both Google Play and the iOS App Store, and Google Play users can pre-register for the game now.

If you're a true Potterhead, then you definitely remember us telling you a year ago that a new Harry Potter mobile game was coming out soon!

According to a press release from Jam City, Hogwarts Mystery will include narrative adventure elements, as well as RPG element.

Jam City is an experienced mobile developer that has made games including Futurama: Worlds of Tomorrow, Avengers Academy and Family Guy: The Quest for Stuff. In the game, players make pivotal decisions that influence their character's story arc at Hogwarts. Interactive Entertainment, developed by Jam City and will be released this spring for mobile devices under Portkey Games™, the new label for gaming experiences inspired by the magic and adventures of the Wizarding World™.

The trailer for the game was released on March 1, 2018 to much fanfare and excitement from fans around the world.

Somehow, in the roughly two decades that the Harry Potter franchise has been around, there has never been a role-playing game that lets fans put themselves in the shoes of their own Hogwarts characters.

Instead, players will take the role of a new student just enrolled in the wizard academy. This game will make friendships and basically play out your life and also give a feel like you were in the actual story.
