LEGO Harry Potter for DS "A Bit Zelda-y"

Video Games

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’ve recently, as a hard-core fan delved into the HP video games! What a surprise of wonder! I love playing them sometimes! I can’t wait for this one!

It looks like a good game, but the Harry Potter games are never as good on the portible systems as they are the non-portible like the playstations or Xboxes

So it’s like Phantom Hourglass and Spirit Tracks. This is very interesting.

Personally I’m getting it for PS3, but I so wish I had a Wii and could get it for that instead! Either way, I am so excited to get my hands on it. :)

Hopefully it will be good for Wii, since that is what I have pre-ordered!
