Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery Is Confusing Players About Established Canon

Perhaps it’s just excellent divination.

The new mobile game Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery has caused fans some confusion with inconsistencies in the lore.

Polygon reports the game, which is set in 1984 between Voldemort’s first rise to infamy and Harry Potter’s tenure at Hogwarts, has some occurrences which buck the known canon.

Chief amongst these is the introduction of the racing-broom known as the Firebolt which, in the books, didn’t exist until 1993 when Harry became one of the first to own one.

During a flying class in Hogwarts Mystery a question crops up about the broom, which makes sense due to its likely prominence in the minds of fans. What doesn’t make sense is how they can expect your character to answer it when the broom shouldn’t even exist yet.

Errors in the established canon seem to be the least of Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery’s problems with players particularly upset over how the game uses microtransactions.
