New “Harry Potter: Puzzles and Spells” Mobile Game Releases Trailer

Potterheads have a new way to connect with their fandom. A trailer for Harry Potter: Puzzles and Spells, a new Harry Potter mobile game by Zynga Inc. and Portkey Games (from Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment), has been released. A new website for the game has also been launched allowing those anticipating the game’s release to sign up for updates.

The trailer visits many familiar locales from the Harry Potter series including Diagon Alley, Platform Nine and Three Quarters and the Hogwarts Express. The website promises that many notable characters will appear in the game as players progress through levels.

The game will feature match-3 style puzzles and daily event challenges needed to level up the customizable in-game characters. Players will be able to unlock and upgrade spells in the game by removing hazards and obstacles within the game. Players will gain collectible cards after each puzzle that is solved, with a magical creature earned once collections are complete, to assist players with solving puzzles.

The game will also feature spell upgrades themed around lessons at Hogwarts, such as Potions, Defense Against the Dark Arts and more. Players will be able to team up, join clubs take part in exclusive club events and share Hogwarts house pride. 

A worldwide release date has not been announced yet. Updates are available on Zynga’s social media platforms and the official Harry Potter: Puzzles and Spells website.
