Everyone’s favorite wizard is back, no not Merlin, its Harry Potter of course, starring in the new LEGO Harry Potter: Years 5-7 game. The completion of the series was first announced back in May and is set to hit the UK stores November 18th. With just over a month to go before that day comes, Warner Bros. seems to have made a new trailer magically materialized out of thin air.
The first part to the LEGO series, Harry Potter: Years 1-4, was launched across all platforms last year. It covered all the main goings on from the first four movies and books and was packed full of magical gameplay and potion making. The second installment to the series covers the action from the last three episodes and features much of the same mystical challenges against lots of creatures and other wizards including Lord Voldemort.
Suitable for all ages, this game focuses on solving puzzles, exploring and colleting, much like other LEGO themed games, except this series also integrates casting spells, more of which can be unlocked as the player progresses. A wide range of magic is available to the characters, even a choice of which spell to use is given to each wizard. Be careful though because if a spell isn’t quite mastered, you could find yourself cast into a frog.
The trailer, which can be viewed below, shows some memorable reenactments of some of the action in the movies, including the three main characters, Harry, Hermione and Ron flying over the Thames as well as a few comical twists like the moment Dumbledore was whisked away by the Phoenix being a little out of sync shall we say. Check it out for yourself below.
What do you think of the trailer? Are you looking forward to the game?
