  • Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery is a new mobile RPG due next year

The group used two themed predictive keyboards-one for narration, the other for dialogue-to ghostwrite a hilarious chapter from "Harry Potter and the Portrait of What Looked Like a Large Pile of Ash" (the unofficial eighth book in Rowling's popular series).

Hogwarts Mystery, players will be able to create their own characters and "experience life as a student".

We're already dusting off our hats and waving our wands in excitement!

Hogwarts Mystery is coming to mobile devices, and is being developed by Jam City, a developer that - among its more time-waster projects - put together the pretty-okay Futurama: Worlds of Tomorrow. However, Jam City, the studio known for Cook Jam, Avengers Academy and Family Guy: The Quest for Stuff, is developing the mobile game. Interactive Entertainment's Portkey Games, a new label dedicated to creating gaming experiences set within the Harry Potter world.

We'd be lying if we said that there's been a definitive Harry Potter game released to date. The company, known for its work on puzzle games like Cookie Jam and Panda Pop, has licensed the IP from Warner Bros.


Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery is now scheduled for a release in the spring of 2018 for Android and iOS.

In "Hogwarts Mystery", players progress through their years at Hogwarts, participating in the magical classes and activities Potterheads have come to love, including Defence Against the Dark Arts, Potions, and Duelling Club. Hogwarts Mystery will be the first made-for-mobile Harry Potter game.

We all know that Portkeys are supposed to be junk that no one would touch, but in 2018 the Ministry of Magic (aka Warner Brothers) is allowing a new item to become a transportation - your phone, through some mobile games. Botnik Studios created the three-page chapter, titled "Harry Potter and the Portrait of What Looked Like a Large Pile of Ash", after training an algorithmic tool on all seven of the children's fantasy novels.

It's hard to imagine one Death Eater kissing another one on the cheek while more of Voldemort's supporters gather around them and applaud - unless you're a computer.

Their most recent project, an excerpt from a new Harry Potter book, has particularly won over the internet.
