It’s Time to Go Back to Hogwarts with “Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery”!

The wait is over, fellow witches and wizards, and Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery is available to download for iOS and Android today! We previously demoed the game and spoke with the game developers at A Celebration of Harry Potter in January and have been anxiously awaiting the game’s full release since!

For those who don’t know, Hogwarts Mystery is a create-your-own-adventure sort of game where you get to personalize an avatar and send them to Hogwarts, just like you’ve always dreamed of!

Chris DeWolfe, cofounder and CEO of Jam City, says the company is so excited about the release and the responses already being given to the game.

There are so few moments where a mobile entertainment company has the chance to truly bring magic into the world, and we’ve been thrilled by the amazing response our game has already received from ‘Harry Potter’ fans everywhere. We at Jam City have been working hard to ensure that any aspiring witch or wizard can enter Hogwarts through their smartphones and tablets and begin their magical journeys.

This story is set in the 1980s, shortly after the deaths of James and Lily Potter. We don’t want to give too much away, because you’re going to want to play this game for yourself! But we can tell you that this adventure is one you don’t want to miss out on!

New Mobile Game Allows Players to Experience the Magic of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry First-Hand as Students

LOS ANGELES, April 25, 2018 – Jam City, a Los Angeles based mobile games studio, announced today that the new mobile game Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery is available to download now on the App Store and Google Play. Developed by Jam City in partnership with Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery is the first mobile game where players create their own character and experience life as a Hogwarts student. The game will launch under Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment’s Portkey Games, a label dedicated to creating new mobile and videogame [sic] experiences that place the player at the center of their own adventure, inspired by J.K. Rowling’s original stories.

“There are so few moments where a mobile entertainment company has the chance to truly bring magic into the world and we’ve been thrilled by the amazing response our game has already received from Harry Potter fans everywhere,” said Chris DeWolfe, co-founder and CEO of Jam City. “We at Jam City have been working hard to ensure that any aspiring witch or wizard can enter Hogwarts through their smartphones and tablets and begin their magical journeys.”

The story of Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery is set in the 1980s. In the game, players will progress as a student through Hogwarts, joining one of its four houses. Players will be able to create and upgrade personalized characters using an avatar customization system, learn an arsenal of magical skills, and form relationships with other students. They will also be able to master everything from crafting potions under Snape’s critical eye, to Transfiguration with Professor McGonagall. Along with interactive spellcasting, the game features an encounter system where narrative choices impact parts of the story.

“Being involved in the making of the Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery mobile game will give great pleasure to my grandchildren,” said Dame Maggie Smith, [the] voice of Professor McGonagall in the game.

Players will also be introduced to some original game characters like Penny, a popular Hufflepuff potions expert, Tulip, a rebellious Ravenclaw prankster, and Merula, a Slytherin with a dark past. As players unravel the Hogwarts mystery, they will explore familiar locations like Diagon Alley and Hogsmeade.
