As an unashamed Harry Potter fan this is certainly news I can welcome. A game that combines the whimsy and wonder of Harry Potter, with the creativity and imagination of the LEGO universe, this game is jam packed full of excitement, adventure, and magic.

Players can now relive all their favourite moments from Harry’s adventures on the PS4, starting with the Philosophers Stone and going all the way through to the Deathly Hallows. Get to explore Hogwarts, brew potions, cast spells, and duel dark wizards in what might just serve as the perfect little game to prepare all those out there, like me, who are just counting down the days till the new upcoming film Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.
