Global player of interactive entertainment field – Zynga Inc. announced that its magical Match-3 mobile game, Harry Potter: Puzzles & Spells, is introducing a special in-game series of events in conjunction with the launch of Warner Bros. Pictures’ new film, “Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore,” now playing in theatres worldwide. The events can be glimpsed in this trailer:
By featuring magical characters and creatures from the film franchise, the limited time Fantastic Beasts Celebration invites players to experience the wizarding world of “Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore” in Harry Potter: Puzzles & Spells. In the in-game event, which runs through tomorrow, famed Magizoologist Newt Scamander appears in the game for the first time, as a guide and host. As a special event bonus, players can earn badges to collect the Niffler, the lovable magical creature known for collecting shiny objects and treasures. For the first time, players can keep the Niffler as a permanent creature they can use in gameplay going forward – but they need to act quickly to seize their chance.
Players who’ve been swept into the Fantastic Beast Celebration can dive even deeper into Harry Potter: Puzzles & Spells with the special Magical Creatures Season that runs from late April to late May. This in-game event enables players for the first time to unlock the Qilin, perhaps the wizarding world’s most revered magical beast, to help complete Puzzles when activated.
“We’re incredibly excited to announce the latest Harry Potter: Puzzles & Spells in-game event series in conjunction with the release of Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore,” said Yaron Leyvand, Executive Vice President, Games at Zynga. “The film series has created a massive global fan following, and we are excited that our players can see the film’s most beloved characters on the mobile screen.”
