Time to ready your wand — er, swiping finger.
A new game lets players take on the role of a magizoologist (like hero Newt Scamander in this weekend’s Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them) to unravel mysteries, discover hidden clues, and cast spells.
The mobile hidden-object game from Warner Bros. Interactive, Fantastic Beasts: Cases From the Wizarding World, follows a cast of original characters who begin as new recruits, investigating strange happenings in iconic Wizarding World locations, including the Leaky Cauldron and Diagon Alley. Uncovering hidden items and performing spells will unravel the mysteries of the magical creatures and put a spotlight on those behind it all, while dragons, Hippogriffs, Nifflers, unicorns, centaurs, and more will test players’ growing knowledge.
By matching creature identifiers as the game progresses, players will be able to pinpoint their possible location, while immersing in the vibrant and peculiar Wizarding World. Investigators on the rise will have to interview both muggles and the wide variety of spell-casters, drawing their own knowledge of the iconic world.
Players can connect with Facebook to partner with their sleuthing friends to gain support as they make their way through cases.
