E3 2009 / Lego Harry Potter coming

The rumors of a Lego Harry Potter are no longer rumors and officially enter the realm of reality. The success of the other Lego games leads us to believe that Lego Harry Potter will hopefully be a game fans can enjoy unlike many of the other Harry Potter titles that we like to pretend didn’t happen. The teaser trailer above is full of that silly Lego charm and gives us a taste of year one in Harry’s adventure.

Lego Harry Potter will take place during years 1-4 of the the series which covers, Sorcerer’s Stone (Philosophers Stone), Chamber of Secrets, Prisoner of Azkaban and The Goblet of Fire. Players will be able to play as the trio, Harry Potter, Ron Weasley and Hermoine Granger and do just about everything you can in the books. Players will go to class, cast spells, conjure potions and ride broomsticks all the while earning points for their house. Go Gryffindor! Players will also have the freedom to explore the Potter universe. Anyone up for taking a trip to Hogsmeade for some butterbeer? Much like everything Harry Potter we have to wait to play it, until sometime next year to be specific. We Harry Potter fans are used to it though and trust that we will be waiting patiently. Expecto Patronum! Sorry, I just couldn’t resist.
