Great news for this video game fans this first day of June: Warner Bros officially announces the arrival of a LEGO Harry Potter game due in 2010. Check out this adorable new trailer for the videogame here! The press release reads as follows:

Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and TT Games are teaming up with
the LEGO Group, to merge two of the world’s most popular brands with the
creation of LEGO® Harry Potter: Years 1-4. Based on the first
four Harry Potter books and movies that tell the story of Harry’s
first four years at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, LEGO®
Harry Potter: Years 1-4
offers an engaging mix of magical gameplay
and light-hearted humor. LEGO® Harry Potter: Years 1-4 is being
developed by TT Games and will be published by Warner Bros. Interactive
Entertainment and is scheduled for release in 2010.

LEGO® Harry Potter: Years 1-4 will give gamers the chance to
experience the magic and adventure of Harry Potter in a uniquely LEGO
way. Playing as Harry Potter, Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger, as
well as other favorite characters, gamers will have the opportunity to
attend lessons, cast spells, mix potions, fly on broomsticks and
complete tasks to earn house points. Throughout the game, players will
also have the freedom to explore iconic settings from the wizarding
world including Hogwarts castle, Diagon Alley, the Forbidden Forest and
the village of Hogsmeade!

“With LEGO® Harry Potter: Years 1-4 we are creating an open,
wide-ranging experience within Hogwarts that is full of fun and LEGO
magic’ said Tom Stone, Managing Director, TT Games. “Harry Potter
is one of the most beloved and well-respected characters, and we look
forward to bringing gamers a new way of interacting in the universe with
the LEGO games’ great humor and exploration.”

Harry Potter is one of the world’s most popular and
inspirational heroes, and LEGO® Harry Potter: Years 1-4 will
appeal to a generation of gamers who grew up immersed in the Harry
Potter
books and films, and also loved playing with LEGO toys’ said
Samantha Ryan, Senior Vice President, Development and Production, Warner
Bros. Interactive Entertainment. “The game is geared for players to
experience a good mix of puzzle solving gameplay with exploration and
battle in some of the most beloved Harry Potter environments, plus a few
other surprises.”

“We’re excited to announce this gaming experience based on the amazing
Harry Potter universe’ said Henrik Taudorf Lorensen, Vice President,
New Business Development, the LEGO Group. “LEGO Harry Potter: Years
1-4
is built around the same values of family-friendly creative game
play that are present in other LEGO videogames, while delivering new
elements of exploration and depth that we believe will engage children
in imaginative play both virtually and physically.”

I mean, if you can do all six Star Wars in one Lego game, why not six (or seven depending on what they know) in one game?Avatar Imagecassadinechik says: Ok, so the trailer is really cute :) It will be interesting since the Lego games always let you have two players per level to see how they work the Triwizard stuff.

Avatar Imagewandmastercalum says: SQQQQQQQQQQQQQQQQQQQQQQQQQQQQQQQQQQQQQQQUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE. OMG I used to love playing with my complete lego Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban set (until my mum destroyed it!!) and now we're getting this!!! This totally will make up for the non-enjoyable GoF game. maybe the 4th year will be a much better version of gof for ps2!Avatar ImageKanedaX says: I read this post hours ago and there's still a big grin plastered on my face. I have every Lego game (Star Wars, Indiana Jones, Batman), and I've been yearning for this game for years. Curious to see how Potter fans react to it, especially those who never played any of the previous games. The tone is distinctly more light-hearted and jokey, and I wonder how people'll react when they deal with Cedric, Sirius, etc. Can't wait! If you haven't played a Lego game you don't know what you're missing! Oh, it says "Next-Gen systems"... So if you're hoping for a PS2 version you're probably out of luck. Get a Wii, a 360, or a PS3 between now and 2010 and you'll be fine. ;)Avatar ImageAndygirl14 says: I knew it was coming soon!! And THANK GOD!! I was kinda getting worried!! The video was adorible!! Thank you so much for the update Sue!!Avatar ImageTabitha_potter says: I just cried tears of awesome. I think I may have to buy a gaing system just to play this. Avatar Imagemissingmarauder22 says: I LOVE the Lego games! And I know all the others have TONS of unlockable characters, so we may well see the bulk of the cast as playable characters. Lego Madame Maxime!Avatar Imagecryospear says: That was so AWESOME!!! I can't wait to buy this as soon as it's available!Avatar ImageTiger Lily says: This is so cool and squeefull. I love the lego games and to have them bring out a Potter one is just awesome.Avatar ImageAga Veneficus says: YYYYEEEESSSSS!!!Avatar Imagemichaelabraham says: I dont want to wait until next year!!!!! LOLAvatar ImageThe Whomping Willow says: I just got really excited, everyone around me is puzzled.Avatar Imagesquibcloakmaker says: soooooooooo Haaappyyyyyyyyyyyyy!Avatar ImageCharlieWeasley1994 says: I HAVE BEEN WAITING SO LONG FOR THIS!!! Do you think there will be trophy support for this game? Avatar Imagekullerminuller says: WOO Love LEGO - but then again, I came from the town where it was created so have been surrounded by LEGO lunchboxes in all my school years, and you can't help being infected by that Avatar Imagedumblydorr729 says: WOW I am so excited for this!Avatar ImageBeansie says: That looks so adorable! I absolutely cannot wait!Avatar ImageBrosia23 says: I think I had a mini heart attack. This is the best news I have heard all day. I actually squeaked. Squeaked! Like a chew toy! I think I am still quaking a bit. The thing is, I have rarely bought video games because they are so pricey. I might shell out for this, so long as it is for the 360. Long live Harry Potter! Long live Lego games!Avatar Imagemaera-kyrie says: Yay! Cool beans!Avatar ImageMidnightSun321 says: AWESUM!!! SQUEE!!!Avatar Imagegrednforge7 says: quite odd that it's covering 1-4Avatar ImageJTEL99 says: Wow, what great news!!! Yet another game to put on my list.

I'm totally gonna get this when it comes out :D. Lego!Baby Harry was waaay too cute, hehehe.Avatar ImageAvianEddy says: The LEGO series of video games are a lot of fun. I just hope they include ALL the settings from the books– not just the movies.Avatar Imagekingdom says: aww this is indeed very adorable. i hope it comes out for ps3 or for mac. i would be a very angry fan if they made this only for one console! very excited for it though =]Avatar Imagececmal says: That looks so fantastic! Must have!Avatar ImageIzzzy8 says: YES!Avatar Imagelisajean65 says: That looks amazing! I have definitely got to get this!Avatar Imagestarfishes16 says: awwww man... I REALLY wanted them to try to do all 7 in one! I should have helped them put it together, because I had sooo many ideas!Avatar ImageGustoffr2d2 says: This is going to be the ultimate adventure for a Harry Potter/Lego Freak! I can't wait!!!!Avatar Imagevoiceofreason927 says: That's just sad. They got rid of Lego Spiderman due to Marvel issues and picke up Harry Potter¿¡ The Lego video games are going down hill fast.
