Harry Potter: 9 Fantastic Beasts present in the Hogwarts Legacy game!

This April 13, 2022 finally releases the third and final work of Fantastic Beasts in cinema. The opportunity for everyone potterhead live the adventures of Dumbledore and Grindelwald on the big screen and see this famous pact between the two greatest wizards of all time. And even though the long-awaited Hogwarts Legacy: Hogwarts Legacy takes place several years before the events of the movie, many magical creatures will be there, and we can even take care of it! Remembering that the game’s setting takes place exactly in 1890, two years before Alvo, very young, enters school. So, Norbert Scamander will not be present in the game but we can do a little like him: tame Fantastic Beasts, save them from poachers and offer them a safe and quiet place like in your suitcase.

Caring for Fantastic Beasts at Hogwarts Legacy

We saw this in the long gameplay trailer presented in March 2022, Hogwarts Legacy will offer the possibility tohave a magical greenhouse in the Room of Requirement. There, you can do housing, that is, to decorate the place as you see fit with houses, furniture and other outdoor objects. You can also put there all the fantastic animals you managed to save or tame during your adventure, as well as take care of them by feeding and brushing them, for example. In short, a true haven of peace.

Here are all the fantastic animals that we were able to identify in the various trailers and images of the Harry Potter Hogwarts Legacy game that you can assemble or add to your Magical Talon. Feel free to comment if you’ve seen other animals that we didn’t put on this list.

the thestral

This is probably the animal that most caught the attention of fans who watched State of Play. The reason ? The player is able to see a Thestral herd, but we know that only wizards and witches who have witnessed death can see these black horses. We assume, therefore, that the character we will play in Hogwarts Legacy will have a very dark past, which is why he arrives at Hogwarts in Year 5 directly.

the Niffler

A true icon of the Fantastic Beasts movies, the plushie will be featured in Hogwarts Legacy! Greedy for gold and precious objects, we imagine we can find them in Gringotts or in caves full of treasures.

the hippogriff

It is one of the first fantastic animals we see in the Hogwarts Legacy and especially the main assembly that your wizard can use (in addition to the broom) to fly around and explore the surroundings of Hogwarts. We remind you that it is a gigantic open world.

Very shy, the Moon Calf mainly comes out of its den in herds and, when the Moon is in the sky, likes to perform very complex dances. It is said that because of these dances, Mooncalf leave traces in wheat fields (crop circles) and that Muggles then interpret them as extraterrestrial signs.

The Demiguise

It is unknown if this ape who can turn invisible will be present in the Hogwarts Legacy. For now, only a figurine with his likeness has been seen in the trailer. In the movies, Norbert owns a Semiguise named Douglas.

The Dragon

There are all kinds of dragons in the Harry Potter universe and the one pictured below regularly appears in trailers and screenshots for the Hogwarts Legacy game. He appears to have been corrupted by Black Magic, possibly by the story’s villains.

the Grapphorn

Beware of this type of rhinoceros that does not hesitate to run up the hill if it feels threatened. But don’t panic, we can obviously tame him and scratch his back once in our Magic Greenhouse.

the Phocifer

We all remember that adorable moment in the trailer, where we see a young Hufflepuff showing the hero the hatching of a little yellow Focifer. A few minutes later, we also see a cave full ofbirds of all colors in its adult form.

the flirt

An adorable kitten known for her intelligence and foresight. In general, females can have litters of 8 small flounders. One wonders how the crafting system will work in the game.

For the currently absent subscribers, let’s highlight the Bowtruckle, the type of stick bug Norbert always has with him, or the Spinner (blue fly). Note of course that other creatures (not considered Fantastic Beasts) are present in the game: Centaurs for example, Trolls, Dementors or even Acromentulae.

Present in many images of the Hogwarts Legacy, does the Quidditch stadium and flying broomsticks necessarily mean that we will be able to participate in matches? Let’s take stock of all the gameplay tracks.
