According to SnitchSeeker new and exclusive footage from Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows will be attached to the LEGO Harry Potter: Years 1-4 Collector’s Edition, out on June 30th. We heard earlier this week that the first official trailer for Part I is in the works, so hopefully we will have seen it by the time this game is release, and the footage will be something extra.
Lego Harry Potter: Years 1–4 is an upcoming video game with a storyline that will cover the first four books of the Harry Potter series: Philosopher’s Stone (Sorcerer’s Stone in the U.S.), Chamber of Secrets, Prisoner of Azkaban and Goblet of Fire.
According to Wikipedia:
Lego Harry Potter’s gameplay is similar to that of most previous Lego games, with an emphasis on collecting and exploring, rather than the emphasis on combat used in Lego Indiana Jones 2 and Lego Batman: The Videogame. Casting spells is an integral part of the gameplay; few are available from the start, but more are unlocked as the player progresses. For example, the Wingardium Leviosa spell, which almost all characters can use, enables the player to lift and arrange Lego bricks, and the Immobulus spell can freeze other characters. Potion-making is another integral feature; potions can help the player complete levels or, if created incorrectly, have adverse side effects such as turning the player into a frog.
Like the previous Lego games, there are a large number of characters playable, up to 140. These include Harry Potter, Ron Weasley, Hermione Granger, Draco Malfoy, Albus Dumbledore, Rubeus Hagrid, Sirius Black and Remus Lupin, as well as some unusual ones such as Fang, Dobby, Buckbeak and centaurs. Some characters have different abilities, based on the skills of their book counterparts. For instance, Harry is a very good broomstick rider and he is able to perform tricks and shoot jinxes when he is on a broom, Hermione is the best character at casting spells, and Ron can use Scabbers to crawl into otherwise unreachable areas.
This will probably be a must-buy for any hardcore Harry Potter fans. I’ve embedded some trailers for the game below. It actually looks more fun than the official games that are released alongside the movies.
