Most of the iconic professors from the Harry Potter stories reprise their roles in the game. Interactive's Portkey Games, a new label dedicated to creating gaming experiences inspired by J.K. Rowling's books.

It looks like Hogwarts Mystery may be available prior to the release of Harry Potter: Wizards Unite, the Harry Potter version of Pokemon Go that was announced last month, but we couldn't be more thrilled to get to Platform 9 ¾ next year and start our Hogwarts adventure with Portkey's first transport.

Taking all of this into consideration, there have already been a plethora of Harry Potter games released thus far, but the majority of them have either been boring movie tie-in cash grabs or poorly developed projects related to the franchise.

The title of the game also seems to indicate the direction of the upcoming mobile game.
