Warner Bros. Entertainment and Chinese gaming giant NetEase today announced that they are co-developing a new mobile experience based on the Harry Potter IP. Titled Harry Potter: Magic Awakened, it will be a card game with RPG elements added. The story takes place “a few years” after the Second Wizarding War, with players assuming the role of a new student enrolling in Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Players will get to build their own card decks to challenge others, and it sounds like a magic PVP with cards.
Harry Potter: Magic Awakened is now in pre-registration phase over in China, with no word for an official launch overseas. The mobile game will also be published in China under Portkey Games, the brand under Warner Bros. Entertainment which manages the video game business side of the Harry Potter IP. Stay tuned for more updates when available!
