Can you ride Magical Beasts in Hogwarts Legacy?

You will also be able to tame a wide array of other adorable creatures such as Kneazles and Nifflers, both of which have been featured in the novels and the films. Phoenixes will also be part of Hogwarts Legacy’s animal list, although taming and keeping it as a pet may not be possible.
