Your Phone is About to Get a Bit More Magical
If you haven’t heard yet, it’s about time you did — we’re finally getting a Harry Potter app! It’s almost as exciting as your quidditch team taking home the cup! We’re so excited, we’re re-reading the entire series (who are we kidding? We do this all the time)! In case you haven’t figured it out, we are really excited to get a little more magic in our lives. The game is called Harry Potter Hogwarts Mystery, and it’s shaping up to be the best thing since the death of Voldemort.
Let’s start by giving mad props to the goodies that came before the announcement of this app. Pottermore gave us a great holdover — it let us find our Hogwarts house from the source herself, J.K. Rowling. Then, we got to discover our Patronus. It’s been a wonderful journey. Oh, and we’re also in the midst of getting illustrated editions of all of the books! We’re so giddy already, we might as well be a kid at Weasleys’ Wizard Wheezes!
Now, as the cherry on top of the most magical sundae ever, there is going to be an app! And not only that, but they’re telling us we get to create our own Hogwarts student! We need to take a few breaths so we don’t go off like a Blast Ended Skrewt. Okay, let’s share what we know so far. We’ll use a handy dandy bullet list so we don’t devolve into gleeful yet destructive key smashing:
- You get to create your own Hogwarts Student (please refrain from making Ebony Dark’ness Dementia Raven Way)
- There is character customization, including skin color!
- You will attend classes with professors from the books
- You can play games from the wizarding world and even duel
We don’t have a release date yet, but the site says 2018 so it can’t be that far off. If you want to get an owl (well, okay, an email), you can sign up on the Harry Potter Hogwarts Mystery site. They will send you updates faster than we can (although we’re pretty fast)! We’re ready to get sorted and start our Hogwarts journey — are you? Let us know in the Harry Potter Club (link below).
