Back in June TLC reported that pre-orders for the new LEGO Harry Potter video game are now available, bearing a March 26, 2010 release date. Tonight, there are several more sites showing pre-orders with various March release dates, notably this Target pre-order card for the Wii platform of the game and a March 23, 2010. has a March 26, 2010 date yet Barnes and Noble says March 1, 2010.

As a reminder, the trailer for the game covering Harry Potter years 1 -4 can be viewed here, with the write up on the B&N site reading:

3/23 sounds accurate, as most video games are released on Tuedays. Don’t be surprised if it shifts, though. In the last year I’ve had two preorders blow up on me because the company changed their release dates (Arkham Asylum & Bioshock 2).

Can’t wait, though. I’ve played every Lego game, and the last few Potter games, and Lego is a MUCH better series in every aspect. For those of you who think this’ll be a bad game, give it a shot, every one (Star Wars, Indy, Batman) have been amazing.
