I’m a huge fan of the Harry Potter books and films. I find the books well written with charming characters and a vividly portrayed world wrapped in a relatively traditional coming of age hero’s journey.

The individual games based on the events of the films/books, have fallen flat more than immersed the player in the world of Harry Potter. Whether it’s creepy likenesses of the actors, and boring game play, video game Potter just isn’t as endearing and charming as the books and film. Thank God for LEGO. Continue reading

Fresh from the E3 show floor is the news that Warner Bros and Travelers Tales are cooking up Lego Harry Potter: Years 1-4.

Outside of covering “the boy who lived’s” first four years at Hogwarts, not much else is known about the game. There is a snazzy trailer, however, which I’ve linked to below.

The game is set for release sometime next year.
