A recently released teaser trailer has provided the first look at one of Portkey Games’ upcoming Harry Potter mobile games.
The game, dubbed Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery, allows players to attend J.K. Rowling’s famous magical school and take courses taught by the series’ various professors.
Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery takes place prior to Harry attending Hogwarts, during a period set before the famous wizard was even born. This means that players are attending the school with lesser-known characters from the series like Bill Weasley and Nymphadora Tonks, rather than Harry, Ron and Hermoine.
The game, which is being developed by mobile studio Jam City, is the less interesting of Portkey’s two upcoming Harry Potter titles. The other title is being created by Niantic, the developers behind Pokémon Go, and includes augmented reality features.
