LEGO Harry Potter: Years 1-4 Announced

LEGO Harry Potter is now available on the App Store for $4.99. It’s a universal app, meaning it’ll eventually run natively on both your iPhone and iPad, but right now it’s only compatible with newer iPhones and iPods and not the iPad. The timing of this release, on the same night as the movie’s premier, is simply… magic. Click here to buy it.

Just a week before the release of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows in theaters, Warrner Brothers and TT Games announced today that they’re releasing LEGO Harry Potter: Years 1-4 for the iPhone and iPad. The game will let you play through the storylines of the first four Harry Potter books and movies, using a lighthearted sense of humor familiar to people who have played other recent LEGO games.

The LEGO series is known for its take on Batman, Indiana Jones, Star Wars, and Rock Band on other platforms, but this represents the first time it has come to iOS. That is, if you don’t count LEGO Batman: Gotham City Games, which, considering that it was one of the early games to hit the App Store and it was terrible, we certainly don’t.

Check out the screenshots from the iPad version below. LEGO Harry Potter: Years 1-4 will hit the App Store “soon.”
