Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery is giving me two things I didn't know I wanted from the world of Harry Potter but now desperately need: a puppy Fang and a young Nymphadora Tonks. The upcoming mobile game will put players in the robes of a student attending Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry for the first time. In short, you can live all your Harry Potter dreams--including being schooled by Professor Snape in potions. And one of your school buddies will be Tonks, a.k.a. the witch you're okay with never being as cool as.
Tonks will attend many of the same classes as you in the game, and you'll get to watch her develop and harness her Metamorphmagus powers. I hope she has a different hairstyle and color ever single day of school.
And the maybe most exciting thing about Hogwarts Mystery so far is the inclusion of a puppy Fang! Look at the face on this little boarhound. I cannot.
Little Fang spends the bulk of his time with Hagrid (obviously) but can be seen in the game running around the school's massive grounds. He's puppy-sized, but he still looks like he's capable of stumbling into so much trouble. Though who could stay angry at that face?
Is the presence of puppy Fang making you more likely to download Hogwarts Mystery when it's released this spring? Let us know in the comments.
