Kotaku published a preview of LEGO Harry Potter: Years 5-7 earlier today detailing some of the new gameplay elements and features in the last LEGO Harry Potter video game. One notable quote:
Ron Weasley also gets a new skill, the ability to open joke boxes left around the game by his brothers. Inside players will find helpful tools, like an instant swamp, fireworks or a pair of shoes that allow him to walk up walls. If someone other than Ron tried to open a joke box they'll get punched in the face with a giant boxing glove.
Punched in the face with a giant boxing glove. Awesome.
LEGO Harry Potter: Years 5-7 comes out on November 15, 2011, just in time for the holidays. Preorder your copy from Amazon today!
We'll be reviewing the game once it's out and will have a review done for Years 1-4 soon.
