Witches and wizards will also immerse themselves in a new story, which contains both familiar faces from the original Harry Potter saga, as well as new characters. As they progress, players learn spells and spells to cast in the form of cards. Players must accumulate magical knowledge to master these spells, strategize and form combinations, learning what to cast and when, as they engage in increasingly tougher trials and challenge other players to a duel.
