LEGO Harry Potter, The Video Game!

by

Rumors have swirled like the steam off a potion cauldron around the existence of a LEGO Harry Potter Video Game. Well, now it has finally been confirmed. I had a feeling this was coming. Especially when Steve Witt, the LEGO Community Relations Coordinator, seemed to so strongly denying it. 😛

Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and TT Games are teaming up with the LEGO Group, to merge two of the world’s most popular brands with the creation of LEGO® Harry Potter: Years 1-4. Based on the first four Harry Potter books and movies that tell the story of Harry’s first four years at Hogwarts™ School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, LEGO® Harry Potter: Years 1-4 offers an engaging mix of magical gameplay and light-hearted humor. LEGO® Harry Potter: Years 1-4 is being developed by TT Games and will be published by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and is scheduled for release in 2010.

LEGO® Harry Potter: Years 1-4 will give gamers the chance to experience the magic and adventure of Harry Potter in a uniquely LEGO way. Playing as Harry Potter, Ron Weasley™ and Hermione Granger™, as well as other favorite characters, gamers will have the opportunity to attend lessons, cast spells, mix potions, fly on broomsticks and complete tasks to earn house points. Throughout the game, players will also have the freedom to explore iconic settings from the wizarding world including Hogwarts castle, Diagon Alley™, the Forbidden Forest and the village of Hogsmeade™!

“The game is geared for players to experience a good mix of puzzle solving gameplay with exploration and battle in some of the most beloved Harry Potter environments, plus a few other surprises.”

No word on if you will be able to build your own levels as in LEGO Indiana Jones 2, which I still haven’t found a clip of any where! But the simple fact that you will be able to run around Hogwarts and destroy the school (at least presuming this one will be like Star Wars, Batman, and Indiana Jones) makes me very excited. 😀

Actually, my sister and I were talking about what a LEGO Harry Potter game would be like. Casting spells, playing Quidditch, and getting to be everyone from Harry to a ghost (perhaps?) would be very, very cool! We’ll just have to wait till next year to see Sorcerer’s Stone, Chamber of Secrets, Prisoner of Azkaban and Goblet of Fire come to LEGO life. 😉
