We finally have a date for the much anticipated Harry Potter mobile game: Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery. The game will be available for download on iOS and Android on April 25. But you can pre-register for the game here.
The Old Cast Returns
Jam City, the game’s publisher announced that the celebrities from the movies reprise their roles in the game. Cast members include:
- Maggie Smith as Professor McGonagall
- Zoe Wanamaker as Madam Hooch
- Gemma Jones as Madam Pomfrey
- Sally Mortemore as Madam Irma Pince
- Warwick Davis as Professor Flitwick
- Michael Gambon as Professor Dumbledore
In a recent press release, CEO and co-founder of Jam City, Chris DeWolfe said:
“Our goal with Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery is to make players really feel for the first time like they’re attending Hogwarts,”
And by including these actors in the project, it allows players to feel like they’re being taught by these professors. The Hogwarts adventure is not a dream!
Now, I know what you’re thinking. WHERE IS HARRY, RON AND HERMIONE? The game is set as a prequel to the movies so technically, you’re Harry’s predecessor. Think about it and try not to squeal.
Although, as magical as Hogwarts is, perhaps it’s not too wishful to hope for small cameos and references?
And it is as Maggie Smith says: “If I could attend Hogwarts as a student, I would be most excited to attend the potions class taught by Severus because it is the most exotic”
What are you most excited to learn in Hogwarts? With that, I’ll leave you to brew with all the pent up hype. Don’t forget to pre-register if you haven’t already!
