LEGO Harry Potter for DS “A Bit Zelda-y”


Jan 26, 2010

Posted by John Admin

The latest issue of Official Nintendo Magazine has a preview of the LEGO Harry Potter game for the Nintendo DS. An article on the magazine’s website has an excerpt from Official Nintendo Magazine’s interview with the game’s Lead Designer, Arthur Parsons. Noting that the DS LEGO Harry Potter game is “completely different” from the game for the Nintendo Wii console, Mr. Parsons comments:

It’s an isometric adventure-style game. You use the stylus to guide your characters around. It’s a bit Zelda-y. You can use a gesturing system to cast spells by drawing shapes on the touch screen.

Issue 52 of Official Nintendo Magazine is out now.

I think that the Lego DS games are really bad, but that's just my opinion. I'm soooo gonna get it on Wii.Avatar ImagePaintTheSky says: I can't decide if I want to get this for Wii or DS...Avatar ImageLoveTomRiddle says: why not the Wii?

This means it won't be like the other LEGO games. This will be like LEGO battles. No good graphics, and everything will be messed up.Avatar ImageJTEL99 says: That's the way the other HP games were for the DS. I prefer the console HP games myself. Avatar ImageBara says: lol! I could never figure out the Lego Indiana Jones I got for my xBox 360. (Perhaps I need to dig that out again & give it a whirl.) I don't know if I would be able to play the HP Lego edition. Perhaps if it comes out for the xBox I may pick it up, but I want to hear the reviews first.Avatar ImageKami Malfoy says: I take the comment that "it's a bit Zelda-y" as a very good sign. =)Avatar Imagewandmastercalum says: Yes that sounds amazing!!!!!!
