Fantastic Beasts Mobile Game announced

Harry Potter prequel saga starring Eddie Redmayne, Oscar winning actor with The Theory of Everything, hits the big screen on 18 November.

There is only one month left for Fantastic Beasts to be in cinemas. With so much excitement, the new Harry Potter prequel also comes with a video game for mobile that will be available from November 17, just a day before the release of the highly anticipated film.

The name of the game is announced as Fantastic Beasts: Cases From The Wizarding World. The game is a hidden object puzzle in which players will have to find a series of magical objects hidden in the environment for a limited time, as has been released via the Facebook page of Pottermore. The game’s title suggests that many small details, winks, and even easter-eggs about the magical universe created by J. K. Rowling will be included.

How fans react?

The reaction of Harry Potter fans are diverse, while some are impatient to play this new game based on Fantastic Beasts, others seem somewhat disappointed by its simplicity and lack of innovation. Some have wondered why an online multiplayer game like World of Warcraft has not been developed. Many others expected something more like Pokémon Go, but designed around the themes of Fantastic Beasts. At the moment, Niantic does not plan to buy the idea, those disillusioned followers of the magical world have to wait for catching magical creatures as in Pokémon Go and settle with this new puzzle.

The mobile game can be downloaded from Google Play for Android devices and the App Store for iPhone and iPad, but it is unclear in which countries the apps will be available. While we wait for more news, watch the trailer of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, before 18th of November. And if you are too impatient for that, check out the premiere dates!
