Attend the Celestial Ball During February’s “Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery” Side Quest!

Well, it’s a new month, which means our January side quests are over and more excitement is on the way! Jam City, the developer of Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery, has just announced an exciting new addition to the game in February: the Celestial Ball!

 

 

This February, players who are in their fourth year or higher will be able to attend the Celestial Ball, the game’s first formal event. Much of the action will focus on preparing for the dance, and certain characters will have specific goals.

The popular Hufflepuff Penny hopes to head the Decorating Committee, but the devious duo of Merula and Ismelda have set their sights on sabotage. Meanwhile, introverted classmates like Rowan require makeover tips and pep talks to put their best foot forward at the dance.

Players will get the chance to invite the date of their choice to the dance and to choose an outfit from selections made by “fashion-forward Ravenclaw Andre.”

Michael Brozman of Jam City commented on the exciting side quest.

Life at Hogwarts is filled with classes, studies, extra-curricular activities – but also social events and celebrations. We’re thrilled to introduce the Celestial Ball time-limited sidequest [sic] this February, giving players the opportunity to explore the excitement, choices, and camaraderie of a Hogwarts school dance.

Whom will you invite to the dance? Since February does include Valentine’s Day, this seems like the perfect time for Hogwarts Mystery to introduce this fun social event. Let us know your Celestial Ball plans!
