Here's a first look at the new Harry Potter mobile game

It's the second game to be announced under the Portkey Games brand.

That is, of course, in addition to the inevitable ramping up of reveals as the game gets closer to release. But that's not all - we've also got a lot more info on what it is, exactly, that we can expect.

Based on the reveal trailer, Hogwarts Mystery looks like it touches on numerous elements that make the school experience in the Harry Potter stories so exciting: Classes with teachers you know, clique-y groups of friends and enemies, an ever-growing array of magical abilities, and even wizard duels. Like Pokémon Go, Wizards Unite will use augmented reality technology to superimpose the Harry Potter universe onto the real world, placing magical artefacts and creatures around players' neighbourhoods.

That changed with the January 2018 announcement, though. It's a story-driven game with a twist: You are the focus.

Thankfully not this time, as unlike other popular games that boast platform exclusivity, Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery is set to come to iOS, Android and even Amazon's mobile OS. Players can "create a personalised student avatar, attend classes, learn magical skills, form friendships or rivalries with other students, and make pivotal decisions that will influence their character's story arc as they traverse their years at Hogwarts and grow as a witch or wizard".

The game is set in the 1980s, before Harry Potter's birth and enrollment at Hogwarts, when Nymphadora Tonks and Bill Weasley were students. The avatar customization system allows you to continually upgrade your avatar as you gain new expertise and magical skills - you can even choose your own pet. According to Jam City, the quests players will be able to take up will range from large plot arcs to smaller relationship-based missions. It'll be the decisions players make during these quests that will impact the direction of the narrative and determine how other characters interact with them. It allows you to craft your own legacy, whether that be one full of kindness or evil. Pre-register for it now at the official website.

Want to know more? And while fan-favorite characters will appear throughout their years at Hogwarts, there will be some notable absences from the school: Harry Potter and his crew.
