There's another new Harry Potter smartphone game in development - this time, a narrative-based RPG where you get to attend Hogwarts. Players are also expected to enroll in the school's signature classes such as Potions, Transfiguration, and Defense Against the Dark Arts.
It's the second Harry Potter mobile game to be announced in as many months, following the reveal that Niantic was now working on Harry Potter: Wizards Unite - a wizarding version of Pokémon Go's augmented-reality gameplay.
Big news for Harry Potter fans everywhere - a new mobile game has been announced!

An artificial intelligence tool read all of the "Harry Potter" books and automatically generated a new, self-written chapter out of what it learned.
But things get more freaky as the chapter begins with ginger-icon Ron Weasley devouring Hermione's family as if the the Harry Potter films have been blended with Silence of the Lambs.
Mobile game developer Jam City is behind the title, which is being planned for a spring 2018 release.
The folks over at Botnik - which according to its website is "a community of writers, artists and developers collaborating with machines to create unusual new things" - made a decision to give the people what they really want, and pen a new chapter of "Harry Potter". If you do pre-register, expect an email once the game is ready to play on your iPhone or Android device.
While a computer can certainly mimic elements of the famous series, though, it can hardly capture J.K. Rowling's magic - which is why the result, called Harry Potter and the Portrait of What Looked Like a Large Pile of Ash, is so odd and amusing that fans are begging for more.
Harry Potter and the Portrait of What Looked Like a Large Pile of Ash is just one of the many hilarious creations that can be found on Botnik's site.
