It’s safe to say that the Harry Potter saga, and Lego’s are timeless, with this year being the 20th year anniversary of the first Harry Potter book, and neither losing their lustre over the years. Thus it is somewhat fitting that the LEGO Harry Potter: Collection, has been announced, bringing together LEGO Harry Potter: Years 1-4 and LEGO Harry Potter: Years 5-7 into one complete package, for both the Xbox One and, more excitingly, the Nintendo Switch.

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.

“The LEGO Harry Potter: Collection for Nintendo Switch and Xbox One grants access for a new generation of players to experience Harry Potter’s magical journey through the imaginative lens of LEGO,” said Jonathan Smith, Head of Production and Strategic Director, TT Games. “Fans of all ages can embark on a light-hearted and interactive journey inspired by beloved characters and iconic locations from the Harry Potter films.”

LEGO Harry Potter: Years 1-4, as you may suspect, 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 players 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, culminating in the final battle with Lord  Voldemort.

As for the included DLC, this will bring 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, as well as a Spell Pack featuring Cantis, Densaugeo, Ducklifors, Melofors and Tentaclifors to the game as well.
