A new mobile game called Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery was announced this morning from Jam City, and it will allow players to attend J.K. Rowling's beloved fictional school to learn how to become a successful member of the magical community.

In "Hogwarts Mystery", players progress through their years at Hogwarts, participating in the magical classes and activities Potterheads have come to love, including Defence Against the Dark Arts, Potions, and Duelling Club.

The game is being developed by studio Jam City and is under Warner Bros.

It's not the only Harry Potter mobile game to be released next year, as Niantic, the bods behind Pokemon Go, one of the biggest mobile games of the past couple of years, will be releasing Harry Potter: Wizards Unite. Interactive Entertainment under a licensing deal. The subsidiary is said to be "dedicated to creating experiences inspired by the magic and adventures of J.K. Rowling's Wizarding World".

About a month ago, Pokemon GO developer Niantic confirmed that it is now working on a new mobile AR game set in author J.K. Rowling's Potterverse called Harry Potter: Wizards Unite, which will launch next year. The app game will be coming to Apple, Android, and Amazon devices.

An exact release date hasn't been revealed just yet, but Jam City has said the game will be released next year. A truly authentic Harry Potter experience.

The Harry Potter films, produced by Warner Bros.

Details are slim at this point for Hogwarts Mystery.

The two things that the games decidedly have in common, though, are perhaps the most important: they're both being produced by Warner Bros. with J.K. Rowling's seal of approval, and they both have promised to have "familiar faces" from the Wizarding World in their midst.
