[hide] *1 Gameplay
Lego Harry Potter's gameplay is similar to that of most previous Lego games, with an emphasis on collecting and exploring. Casting spells is an integral part of the gameplay, with a wide range of spells available for unlocking as the player progresses. As there are many spells available in the game, the player can use the spell wheel to select the spell. Potion-making is another integral feature; potions can help the player complete levels or, if created incorrectly, have adverse side effects such as turning the player into a frog. The game covers a wide range of characters, as well as locations, of the last three books and four films. The game employs the two player split-screen technique introduced in Lego Indiana Jones 2: The Adventure Continues. The online play feature that appeared in Lego Harry Potter Years 1-4 is absent from the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of Lego Harry Potter Years 5-7.
Directly after Years 1–4 was announced, it was speculated that a Years 5-7 would be released in the near future. It was actually revealed to be slated for a Holiday 2011 release on May 19, 2011 by an announcement by Warner Bros. and TT Games. In the instruction booklet for various Lego Harry Potter 2011 sets, a page shows an ad for the game with Harry and Voldemort having a climactic duel (Harry casting Expelliarmus and Voldemort shouting Avada Kedavra, a scene from the final book/movie). During an exclusive gameplay session with TT Games, it was announced that there would be an iOS version to be released on the iTunes AppStore later this year. The cover art for the game was released on September 1, 2011. The game released its first trailer on October 6, 2011. A few days after, they released a trailer featuring Voldemort and Bellatrix. Those two, and a third, are available on the official site.
