Harry Potter Hogwarts Mystery Hack occurs in 1984. It’s an important time to remember.
The canonical Harry Potter world stretches generations, but the most important era, when it comes to Harry Potter Hogwarts Mystery Hack, is the time between Voldemort’s preliminary surge and Harry Potter’s attendance at Hogwarts. It’s an interesting period because we don’t really really know what happened during that time; it’s your character’s chance to explore. While it could be tempting to add situations in from Harry’s schooldays, it is important that those little callbacks fall into line with the lore placed by creator J.K. Rowling.
The issue is when those little supporter winks and nods don’t match with the historical times of established events in the Harry Potter world — for example, the intro of the Firebolt.
The Firebolt is a world-class race broom that was produced by Randolph Spudmore in 1993. Harry was one of the first wizards to receive the Firebolt in Dec 1993; it was a gift idea from his godfather-on-the-run, Sirius Black color. The broom was meant to be a replacement for his old Nimbus 2000, that was destroyed by Hogwarts’ Whomping Willow after a Quiddich game between Hufflepuff and Gryffindor. The Firebolt was then spotted again through the 1994 Quiddich Wold Cup finals.
Yet in some way the Firebolt makes an appearance in Harry Potter Hogwarts Mystery Hack. The Firebolt turns up in a question asked throughout your character’s flying class in 1984. The game expects players with an institutional understanding of the Firebolt because it’s a huge part of the original Harry Potter cannon, but the broom should not have existed in 1984.
Another tiny oversight that players have learned is the utterance of Professor Umbridge’s name. Teacher Dolores Umbridge, of course, is one of the nastiest witches to ever be employed at Hogwarts. She commenced in Harry’s fifth year, following the death of Cedric Diggory during the Triwizard Cup and Voldemort’s go back within the Goblet of Fire. A committed follower of Cornelius Fudge, the then Minister of Magic, Umbridge arrived to Hogwarts to quell Harry’s cries exclaiming Voldemort was back again.
Umbridge only became a teacher in 1996, working her life time prior to that session in the Ministry of Magic. She signed up with the Ministry right after graduating, accepting a posture as a “lowly intern in the Improper Use of Magic Office,” relating to Pottermore.
In Hogwarts Secret, however, a question asks students who the Divination teacher is and one of the possible answers is Umbridge. Even if the question was a play on Divination looking to the future, it’s still the wrong position. Umbridge was Hogwarts’ Protection Against the Deep Arts professor for just one time, not Divination. In fact, Umbridge was the reason why that Teacher Trewlaney, the woman who would be in charge of Divination at Hogwarts in Hogwarts Puzzle, was fired in 1996.
These are simply a couple cases — and are admittedly a little know-it-all-ish — but Harry Potter is one of the very most popular franchises ever and is built greatly on historical lore laid out by Rowling. The callbacks to popular Harry Potter moments can be endearing, but considering how far the game would go to stay period-accurate (the Fatality Eaters are in jail or away from home, Voldemort is in hiding, etc.), these questions come off as badly researched.
