24 January 2018

Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery has appeared on the Google Play store. Here's all the details.

It's actually here, you guys - if you have an Android phone, you can download Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery now on the Google Play store now. iPhone users will have to wait a little while to play, though.

Last week we got out first glimpse of the new mobile game Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery, with a brand new trailer.

Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery is described as a narrative-based role-playing game (or RPG - which means it's going to have a big story, and your decisions will impact on what happens in it).

It’s the first mobile game in which players can create their own character and experience life as a student. It takes place before Harry gets there, though, so you'll be attending classes with some of the older students we've heard about in the books, like Ron's older brother, Bill Weasley.

"Players will create a personalized student avatar, attend classes, learn magical skills, form friendships or rivalries with other students, and make pivotal decisions that will influence their character’s story arc as they traverse their years at Hogwarts and grow as a witch or wizard," says the development team, Jam City.

There's also a second mobile Harry Potter game in development. While a release date has not yet been confirmed, Harry Potter: Wizards Unite should also be out in 2018.
