Fantastic Beasts for PS4, PC rated in Germany [Update 2]

Game tie-in planned for 2018 movie sequel?

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

The German USK has rated Phantastische Tierwesen, which means Fantastic Beasts in German, for PlayStation 4 and PC. It is published by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment.

Given the title and publisher, we would guess this is a game based on the J.K. Rowling book and Warner Bros. Pictures movie, the latter of which is getting a sequel in 2018. Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has yet to officially announce a game, however.

Update 8:35 p.m.: As it turns out, Warner Bros. Pictures and Framestore VR Studio released a Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them virtual reality experience for Google Daydream in November 2016. That being said, it is possible that this title is a PlayStation VR and HTC Vive / Oculus port.

Update 9:05 p.m.: Mystery solved. The Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them virtual reality experience was featured in a recent PlayStation VR lineup trailer for Japan as due out in 2017. You can find it at 1:18 here.
