‘Harry Potter’ actors will reprise their roles in the new Hogwarts mobile game, ‘Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery,’ launching April 25.
The mobile game allows uses to become students at Hogwarts in the years between Harry Potter’s birth in 1980 and his first year of school in 1991. (Do you think the wizarding music scene had a Madonna equivalent?) So, no, you won’t be running into Harry, Ron, and Hermione on the way to Potions — but don’t be surprised if you see some other familiar, red-headed Weasleys around campus.
Players will create a personalized student avatar, get sorted by the Sorting Hat, attend classes, practice magic, go on quests, and form friendships or rivalries with other students. Every decision you make influences your overall story arc in the game, putting you in control of your character’s magical legacy.
