If you're a fan of the Harry Potter series, you are probably fully aware that the trailer for the new mobile game dropped recently. If you're not a fan, you're probably aware too, since the ads for it are everywhere.
We've seen the spot about ten bazillion times, and we have questions... like where is the characters neck for most of the trailer? She's just a head placed directly on some some shoulders? That's what we're going with? Okay then, but we're pretty sure there's a spell for that.
Accio neck? Maybe a leviosa on just her head? We don't know. We're not game designers, we can't even draw stick figures, so we should probably stop hating.
We're not the only ones with questions, but first let's review the trailer.
Some were excited.
No love for iOS, but I'm so happy they're making an RPG out of Harry Potter. 😁 Brings me back to my childhood days when I played Harry Potter in the Game Boy Color. 🧙♂️— Stephanie Alexis (@heysstef) March 2, 2018
I'm so ready for this to come out and show my Slytherin pride! 🐍 💚Hogwarts mystery let's go 😄!— QueryQuinn (@Query_Quinn) March 2, 2018
Nothing to do but wait, eh?— Christopher L. (@Noble_Clev) March 1, 2018
I can do that...
I can do...
Damn it. *Starts reading the books and watching the films*
If only Time Turners could place us in the future. Silly charms.
But, like the storyline itself, there was a plot twist! Beta testers and people in Australia can already play!
There’s loads of gameplay footage including year 2 on YouTube. So, who has the beta already?— Ali Doppke (@alphabetocean) March 2, 2018
Got into the beta test for HP Hogwarts Mystery btw and it's so awfully dull. I've seen fanmade games that were way better. 50% hype, 20% energy system, 20% bad OCs and 10% just trying to make some cash off the franchise— Ren (@alcoholicrevo) March 1, 2018
While all of Twitter went back and forth about this,
Voldemort Tom Riddle had a question:
Will I get there a second Chance to kill Harry Potter?— Tom Marvolo Riddle (@Sorrow15422496) March 1, 2018
The rest of us will have to wait until Spring 2018 to give it a shot.
