No this isn't a trick but rather a real Halloween treat for Nintendo Switch and Xbox One owners … for the first time top-selling LEGO Harry Potter: Years 1-4 and LEGO Harry Potter: Years 5-7 are being released to be played on these two gaming consoles.  This remastered version that combines the two games into one bundle is being released just in time to transport players to the Wizarding World for some magical Halloween fun.  I'll raise a pint of butter beer for a toast to that!

On October 30, 2018, LEGO Harry Potter: Collection unites the signature humor of LEGO games and the expansive Wizarding World for a thrilling journey full of spell-casting, potion-making, and puzzle-solving fun. Gamers can experience the entire LEGO Harry Potter adventure featuring content from the eight films with enhanced graphics, environments, lighting and visual effects, along with two downloadable content (DLC) packs.

LEGO Harry Potter: Years 1-4 is based on the first four films—Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone™, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets™, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban™ and Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire™—allowing fans to experience Harry's first four years at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry in full LEGO form. LEGO Harry Potter: Years 5-7 transports players through the final four films—Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix™, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince™ and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows™ Part 1 & 2—to experience Harry’s last years at Hogwarts™ and his battle against Lord Voldemort™ in the ultimate fight between good and evil.

This extensive duel pack of games will also include two previously released DLC content. Players will have access to a Character Pack featuring Godric Gryffindor, Harry (Yule Ball), Helga Hufflepuff, Lockhart (Straightjacket), Luna (Lion Head), Peeves, Hermione (Pink Dress), Ron Weasley (Ghoul), Rowena Ravenclaw and Salazar Slytherin. A bonus Spell Pack is also included adding Cantis, Densaugeo, Ducklifors, Melofors and Tentaclifors to your magical arsenal.

I solemnly swear that I am up to no good because I'm going to be spending a lot of time playing these games with my kids.  Our whole family are Harry Potter fanatics so we'll really be enjoying adding this to our collection of Xbox One video games.  In fact, I just caught my wife spoiling my son and daughter with some LEGO Harry Potter mini-figure toy blind packs when they came home from the store this evening.  So you can tell they're going to be excited about the chance to return to Hogwarts by playing these Harry Potter LEGO video games on our big screen television.
