New Harry Potter LEGO Video Game Trailer, Screenshots, First Look; May 2010 Release Date

IGN has posted a first look at the LEGO Harry Potter: Years 1 - 4 video game, which included a series of six new screenshots and a third trailer featuring new clips and spells from the game.  Most interestingly, the trailer for the video game, which can be seen here in our Video Galleries, gives the release date for the game as May.  This date is later than original estimates that placed release for the game earlier in the spring.  The minute and a half long trailer, gives us a fair few new looks at scenes involving the Chamber of Secrets, Whomping Willow, flight to Hogwarts, and more.  Images from the game let us see detailed looks at such places as the Common Room, Chamber of Secrets entrance, and Quidditch.  The full series of stills can be found here.


As part of the first look, IGN relates that the game will allow gamers to "switch around onscreen characters at will."  The report continues:
Thing is, these wizards all have different talents and magic. Young Harry's pretty weak in terms of spells and such, Hermione isn't the best broom rider (she'll spin around in a circle during that first lesson if you take control of her), and Hagrid's umbrella can only do so much. Luckily, there are more than 100 characters unlock and play as – villains included – so it should be interesting to see who rounds out the roster and just how powerful they are.

If you go on the official site www.magicisbuilding.com and on the VIP section you type the password “fortuna major” you get a little clip of one of the creators, a blog entry, and some “crests” (avatars).

I never knew LEGO had video games until the end of 09 when they showed a clip of the LEGO video game.
