After quite a bit of speculation from the fan base, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, TT Games, and the Lego Group have announced that the latest franchise to get the bumps-and-blocks treatment will be none other than the legend of Hogwarts, Harry Potter!
Not to be confused with the earlier Lego Creator: Harry Potter games, TT Games will be infusing Lego: Harry Potter: Years 1-4 with the same sort of 3D action and metahumor that has been seen in Lego Indiana Jones, Lego Star Wars, and Lego Batman. Here’s a trailer, posted by Romain766, for the uninitiated:
According to the group’s press release, this game will span Harry’s first four years at Hogwarts (through the Goblet of Fire, if you’re wondering), and will allow players to control Harry, Ron Weasley, and Hermione Granger, as you explore areas like Hogwarts, Diagon Alley, Hogsmeade, and the Forbidden Forest. The game is scheduled for release in 2010.
