Since 2011 we have been able to watch the last Harry Potter movie with Harry Potter and his companions at the cinema. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows concluded the wizard’s story and since then fans have had a look at other types of content in this universe. Although some time has really gone by, it doesn’t seem like the popularity has really waned.
Amusement parks, bonus books, movies, and other forms of entertainment have all benefited from this franchise, of course, and will continue to do so for a while, or so it seems. The Fantastic Beasts series will receive a new sequel around April 8 this year, called Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore, allowing Harry Potter fans to enjoy the vast universe now more and more.
We used to have Harry Potter on PlayStation 1 and 2 in terms of games, for example, do we still remember Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone? Level after level, you can see places inside Hogwarts and you can fight against creatures, solve puzzles and battle with magic wand against all kinds of monsters. But today it can be called a simple disaster graphically. Following up didn’t make it any better, either.
The Harry Potter license has often found its way into games through LEGO. A number of games have been released from this, but as a fan of pottery, it will leave you craving for a real witch experience on console or PC. With Hogwarts Legacy, after all these years, it seems like it’s finally time to feel like a true Hogwarts wizard. You will be given the option to join Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw, Slitherin or Griffondor and complete your high school career. Of course there is a lot more to it, what we were able to see in play last Thursday night.
This also brings us to this week’s statement: Hogwarts Legacy is just in time. A new movie in the universe is on the way, fans are constantly eager for more and more Potter content and the game has a good graphics standard in gaming. The visuals we saw were very good (let’s not think about the performance) and the atmosphere speaks volumes.
It definitely took a while before we really enjoyed ourselves with Flipendo, but we’d say being late is better than no late. Also because you did not want to watch such a game as, say, the PlayStation 2, not to mention that it is technically possible on such a scale. So the game will come out in a much better period. What is your opinion? Did it take so long or are we really ready to duel and send someone to the afterlife with the words “Avada Kedavra”!
Let us know in the comments if you’ve been eyeing Hogwarts Legacy, but you can also tell us if you’re done with a bit of this franchise.
