Warner Bros. launching Fantastic Beasts mobile game inspired by J.K Rowling's Wizarding World


If you have a soft spot for Harry Potter movies and the likes, you'll be excited to learn that Warner Bros. plans to launch a mobile game based on the Wizarding World of the beloved magician.

The new game is called Fantastic Beasts: Cases from the Wizarding World and it will be launched on November 17, a day before the theatrical release of Warner Bros. Pictures' new film Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.

As you might have guessed, the mobile game is inspired by the Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts films, but as a genre it belongs to the hidden objects category. The developers confirmed their new title will only be available on the Android and iOS platforms, so there won't be a Windows Phone version launched next month.

Speaking of which, Fantastic Beasts: Cases from the Wizarding World is developed by studio Mediatonic, in partnership with Warner Bros. Games San Francisco.

If you're familiar with the Wizarding World, you will recognize many of the locations depicted in the game such as the Leaky Cauldron, Diagon Alley and Hogsmeade. In Fantastic Beasts: Cases from the Wizarding World, players will be able to explore these locations while discovering hidden objects, analyzing evidence, casting spells and brewing potions.

Your objective will be to investigate unexplained happenings and ultimately uncover and protect the magical creatures at the center of each of these mysterious cases.

Moreover, Warner Bros. announced that players can even share their gameplay experience with friends and fellow recruits by logging into Facebook to see each other's progress and help if possible. Naturally, the game is free-to-play, so you won't have to pay anything to get it on your phone or tablet.

Wasn't the Harry Potter saga concluded enough? I swear every loose end before the finale was already concluded. I don't get it.
