Attending Hogwarts Is More Attainable Than We Thought, Thanks to This New Mobile Game

We've been waiting on our Hogwarts acceptance letter since the morning of our 11th birthday, so it's safe to say that we're slightly bitter it still hasn't arrived.

Luckily, though, our long wait to wander the halls of the world's best school of witchcraft and wizardry is almost over. The mobile entertainment company Jam City, Inc. partnered with Warner Bros. to create the first in a line of Harry Potter-themed games—and the release date is just around the corner!

Starting on April 25, Ravenclaws, Hufflepuffs, Gryffindors and Slytherins alike will all be able to experience the world of wizardry by playing "Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery." The new mobile download is a role-playing game designed to allow all users to feel like they're really attending Hogwarts. Players will be able to create their own characters, attend classes to learn spells and other skills, investigate various Hogwarts mysteries, bond with housemates and just generally experience the life of a Hogwarts student.

The game is set before Harry Potter's time at Hogwarts, allowing you to experience an entirely new story within JK Rowling's wizarding world. Plus, it'free to download and play, although some in-app purchases are available.

If this game sounds too good to be true, hold on to your broomsticks because it gets even better. Some of the alums from the Harry Potter films are lending their iconic voices to the new game. Now, you can receive direct orders from Professor McGonagall (Dame Maggie Smith) herself, learn charms from Professor Flitwick (Warwick Davis), be nursed back to health by Madam Pomfrey (Gemma Jones) and even gain some indispensable knowledge from Professor Dumbledore (Michael Gambon).

It doesn't get more Hogwarts than that!
