It seems that, in the end, all the rumors regarding the upcoming Lego computer games were real: we have Lego Rock Band, we have Lego Indiana Jones 2 and, after the first day of the E3 media summit, we have Lego Harry Potter confirmed by Warner Bros.
Lego Harry Potter will be based on the first four episodes in the Harry Potter series, and the game will be developed, obviously, by the “Lego masters” Traveller’s Tales. Even though details about the game were pretty scarce at the moment, we do know that we’ll be allowed to play as the “blocked” version of Harry Potter, Ron Weasley or Hermione and we’ll explore both Hogwarts and other locations from the series.
No actual screenshots of the Lego Harry Potter game were offered, but we were told that the game will be released sometime in 2010. Which is quite nice, having in mind that it will come after the end of the big screen series. But what do you think? Will the game reach its potential and indeed become a major hit?
