Coming Soon reports that Jam City and Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment have released a new trailer for Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery, as well as new details about the upcoming mobile game. It will launch through WB’s new Portkey Games, a label dedicated to Harry Potter-themed games.

Here’s a synopsis: Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery is the first game in which players can create their own character and experience life as a Hogwarts student. In the roleplaying game, players will create a personalized 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 will first be introduced at the “Celebration of Harry Potter” event at Universal Studios in Orlando, Florida from January 26-28. There will be two behind-the-scenes panels hosted by Jam City, as well as a booth to get exclusive merchandise, play the game, meet members of the team and more.

Jam City CEO and co-founder Chris DeWolfe said: “Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery is a role playing experience about magic, friendship, and life as a student at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. We can’t wait to give fans a first look at the game at A Celebration of Harry Potter, and this spring players will be able to explore Hogwarts fully in their journey toward becoming a witch or wizard.

The game will be set between Harry Potter’s birth and his enrollment at Hogwarts, when Nymphadora Tonks and Bill Weasley were students. It will include an extensive avatar customization system, allowing you to change your avatar with increased experience and magic skills. The player can choose their own pet and join one of the four Houses before going through Hogwarts classes like Potions and Transfiguration. The skills will help the player as they solve mysteries and have adventures, while improving skills, unlocking new locations, spells and more. It will include large story arcs and smaller stories like relationship quests. There’s a new encounter system in which your decisions can influence the quests, as well as character interact with you.

The game will be released this spring on the App Store, Google Play, and the Amazon Appstore.
