This year is a very exciting one to be a Harry Potter fan. Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, an all-new play script focusing on Harry and his family years after his time at Hogwarts, was just released to the expected level of fanfare, and Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them will expand the film series into the United States later this year. But if you’ve been itching to play a new, honest-to-goodness Harry Potter video game again, it looks like you’ll chance have a to do that, too — sort of.
The Lego Harry Potter Collection, an unannounced remaster that presumably includes both Lego Harry Potter: Years 1-4 and 5-7, was spotted in a Brazilian ratings database by Twitter user Felipe Mesquita. The rating is only for the PlayStation 4 version of the game, though given that the original two games were both multiplatform releases, it seems likely that the remastered collection would follow suit.
That’s not the only Lego-related Harry Potter content to expect this year. The toys-to-life game Lego Dimensions will get a Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them set in November, adding to an already eclectic mix of franchises included in the game. This could suggest that Warner Bros. doesn’t plan to release a dedicated Fantastic Beasts game.
Both Lego Harry Potter games received fairly positive reviews, continuing the great track record that developer Traveller’s Tales has produced over the last decade. This is in stark contrast to the more “faithful” video game adaptations, such as Deathly Hallows, Part 2, which, like many movie-to-game adaptations, was reviled.
No release date was offered with the Lego Harry Potter Collection leak, but we certainly expect to see it before the end of the year.
