The LEGO Harry Potter games have been around for quite a while. Now, they are being remastered in a brand new collection. The caveat, however, is that it will only be on Sony’s PlayStation 4.
The LEGO Harry Potter Collection will include both LEGO Harry Potter Years 1-4, and LEGO Harry Potter Years 5-7 on a single disc. It will also feature enhanced graphics and all the add-on content from LEGO Harry Potter Years 5-7. The remastered collection will feature a massive Character and Spell pack as well.
Special characters in LEGO Harry Potter Collection:
- Godric Gryffindor
- Helga Hufflepuff
- Rowena Ravenclaw
- Salazar Slytherin
- Harry (Yule Ball)
- Ron (Ghoul)
- Hermoine (Pink Dress)
- Luna Lovegood (Lion Head)
- Lockhart (Straightjacket)
The Spell Pack, on the other hand, will add spells like Densaugeo, which makes your teeth grow; Ducklifors, which turns you into a duck; Cantis, a spell that makes you sing; Melofors, turns your head into a pumpkin, and Tentaclifors, which gives you a tentacle head.
A brand new film in the Harry Potter franchise called Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is releasing soon. It serves as a prequel to the Harry Potter books and movies and will release on 18 November 2016. Warner Bros. has stated that the new LEGO Harry Potter Collection serves as a perfect gift for those interested in the film. It has not been confirmed yet, but it is safe to assume that a LEGO game based on the movie will also come out in the near future.
The LEGO Harry Potter games have not seen the light of current-generation consoles until now. The last game, LEGO Harry Potter Years 5-7, released five years ago on a vast number of platforms including iOS, Android, and PC.
The remastered LEGO Harry Potter Collection has only been confirmed for PlayStation 4 and will release on 18 October 2016 for $50 USD (R700 ZAR).
