Harry Potter: Puzzles & Spells Reveals Holiday Updates

New content is coming for the holiday season. The press release is below.


Zynga Inc. <https://www.zynga.com/> (Nasdaq: ZNGA), a global leader in
interactive entertainment, announced that winter holiday celebrations are
rolling out in its recently released mobile game, Harry Potter: Puzzles &
Spells. Officially licensed from Warner Bros. Games and published under the
Portkey Games label, players of the game will be treated to a series of
seasonal festivities throughout December, from special limited-time
collection events to a host of holiday decor and surprises.
In the game, players can collect cards to complete the new, limited-time
‘Christmas in the Wizarding World’ album, to earn a mythical Unicorn as
their companion magical creature. Later in the month, holiday decor and
weather will turn Hogwarts into a wintry, wizarding wonderland, as players
encounter falling snowflakes on their gameboard that can be collected to
earn rewards. Bringing a bang to the festivities, brightly colored ‘Wizard
Cracker’ boosts will drop into the puzzles unexpectedly, giving players the
gift of an extra gem-clearing blast as they complete puzzles in this
magical, Match-3 game.
Bringing style to the season, international artist and known Harry Potter
fan Zayn Malik has worked closely with the Zynga team to create new
customization elements for the magical Match-3 title. To replicate more
life-like features for his avatar in Harry Potter: Puzzles & Spells, Zayn
worked to create new eyebrow, earring, beard and eye customizations which
will be available in-game to all players in the new year.  Malik has shared
artwork of his in-game avatar on his own social channels in December, with
an invitation for his fans and fellow gamers to share images of their own.
Additionally, as the calendar arrives at Christmas Eve, players can also
visit the Harry Potter: Puzzles & Spells social channels for more surprises
and holiday cheer during the last week of the year.
“I really enjoyed working with the Zynga team coming up with new elements
to the avatar creator,” said Zayn Malik. “I feel like seeing the animated
version of myself in the game made it way more fun and with these new
customizations that are coming soon, all players will have the opportunity
to feel more connected to the game and make their character look more like

& Spells, we wanted to treat players to a range of new content and seasonal
