JK Rendering: LEGO Harry Potter In Action

Cheery things about videogames, to make people cheery. It's been a while since the LEGO [insert film franchise here] series tickled our funny bones and our puzzle bones quite as expertly as it once did, but I suspect there's a lot of energy and creativity being poured into the upcoming Barry Trotter builder-basher. For one thing, the fact that the Potter books are centred around a single location should mean it's an inherently different prospect to the pick'n'mix environments of Star Wars, Indy and Batman. Free-roaming, perhaps? It is on the record that there'll be less combat than the previous LEGO games, and Hogwarts really needs to be the exploratory gift that keeps on giving. Oh gosh, look at me pretending I know anything about Harry Potter. It is the one with Violet Elizabeth, isn't it?

I have no idea if that's really Robbie Coltrane voicing the Robbie Coltrane character, but it's definitely the best impersonation of Robbie Coltrane making Scottish grunting noises I've ever heard. Also, note this is LEGO Harry Potter: Years 1-4. Do you think there'll be a sequel?

This one's due in May, by the way.
