E3 2009: Warner Announces Lego Harry Potter For Release In 2010

leave a comment »

Confirming what many knew to be true, especially since the leak back in March of an animator listing the project on his CV, Warner have now confirmed the existence of Lego Harry Potter: Years 1 -4. Formats are yet to be announced, but given the series history (of both the Lego and Harry Potter titles) I fully expect it to be on as many formats as humanly possible.

Once again developed by TT games (the team behind all previous Lego license based titles), the title promises to be more of an RPG type affair than the typical block smashing, coin collecting that we have been accustomed to with other Lego titles.

Taking place across the events chronicled in the first four books, the game will allow players to switch between Harry, Ron and Hermonie and will also offer the now standard drop-in/drop-out co-op feature that is a notable hallmark of TT’s Lego titles.

Players can attend lessons, learn spells, mix potions, take part in Quidditch and earn house points all the while exploring famous locales such as the village of Hogsmeade and The Shrieking Shack and involving themselves in major storylines taken from the books. Being a Lego title, we are also ensured the same jolly humour that has punctuated all the Lego titles to date and for once, this is one Lego title that I am actually willing to bat an eyelid over.

Presumably, TT will follow with Lego Harry Potter: Years 5-7 the year after.

Take a peek at the trailer below:
