Following the launch of fan site Pottermore and the announcement of an AR-focused Harry Potter game by the developers of Pokemon GO comes Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery, another upcoming smartphone game set in the Harry Potter universe.
Hogwarts Mystery sees you attend the magical school, take classes, learn how to duel and meet familiar professors from JK Rowling's series.
The game will be free to play with in-app purchases that will enhance the experience. Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery is shaping up to be Jam City's biggest title yet, and it'll be the first one released under Portkey Games - an entirely new label that's focused on releasing games that are part of the Wizarding World.
A story-based role-playing game inspired by Harry Potter is now in the works.
Besides, with Warner Bros. now fully focused on its fledgling Fantastic Beasts saga, Rowling will continue to be in the spotlight for years to come, meaning Anna Klassen may well have identified a gap in the market.
McNabb among former football stars named in NFL Network harassment lawsuit
Former NFL Network analyst Warren Sapp was also named in the lawsuit, as well as former network employee Marc Watts. He says they have been "suspended from their duties at NFL Network pending an investigation into these allegations".
Even the book title the bot constructed is hilariously terrible: Would you line up at a Barnes & Noble at midnight to buy a copy of "Harry Potter and the Portrait of What Looked Like a Large Pile of Ash"? However, Jam City, the studio known for Cook Jam, Avengers Academy and Family Guy: The Quest for Stuff, is developing the mobile game. However, it remains unknown if Jam City could even incorporate elements of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child in the future.
Although the new Harry Potter chapter may be a bit off from the original stories, Potterheads are still showing their love for the unique and hilarious story online.
While the action of Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery will be carried out within the game itself. No release date has been announced. The result is a somewhat nonsensical, but also totally plausible story in which Harry, Ron and Hermione sneak up on a gang of Death Eaters in Hogwarts, challenge them to battle, and end up saying some very weird things to one another. With the help of their own own digital Polyjuice Potion, the creative geniuses at Botnick Studios transformed themselves into J.K. Rowling and created a new Harry Potter chapter written by bots.
But there are nearly too many good ones to pick.
