Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery new trailer reveals gameplay footage

Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery lets you choose your house in this new trailer

A new trailer for the upcoming mobile game Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery has been released, and we have one main takeaway: it lets you choose your Hogwarts house.

Wizarding wannabes are no longer confined to the houses selected for us by way of our worst personality attributes. We can finally choose. Thank Merlin for that. Check out the trailer here:

Here’s what Pottermore has to say about the app:

The mobile game – part of the new label Portkey Games, from Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment – will invite you to join Hogwarts in the 1980s, and will feature many of your favourite things from the Harry Potter stories. These include spells, classes, characters and much more. Although at this point Harry wouldn’t have been old enough to be at the school himself, we think you may recognise a few former students and staff – from Nymphadora Tonks to Bill Weasley to Professor McGonagall.

The role-playing experience will invite you to create your own personalised student avatar, and make key decisions that will impact your story. The trailer wisely reminds us of Dumbledore’s words: ‘It is our choices, Harry, that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities.’

As the game continues, so will your Hogwarts education, your magical skills and relationships with other characters, so make sure to make every decision count. In other words – don’t choose a Crabbe and Goyle-style path, eh?

Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery will be available via the App Store, Google Play and the Amazon Appstore in 2018. Get all the latest fantasy news with every issue of SciFiNow.
