Two of the best family-friendly cooperative games of the last generation were the two LEGO Harry Potter games. Two years ago WB Games and The LEGO Group released The LEGO Harry Potter Collection, combining the two games (plus DLC) into a single remastered package, exclusively on PlayStation 4. Now more people can enjoy the Wizarding World as The LEGO Harry Potter Collection has been released on Xbox One and Switch, for $39.99.

The LEGO Harry Potter Collection combines 2010’s LEGO Harry Potter: Years 1-4, and 2011’s LEGO Harry Potter: Years 5-7, combining multiple movies worth of content. The levels and structure adhere closer to the films than the books, though some liberties were taken to allow for two player co-op in each level. The games feature a dynamic split-screen so players can explore each level at their leisure.

“The LEGO Harry Potter: Collection for Nintendo Switch and Xbox One brings the entire LEGO Harry Potter adventure to a new generation of players to enjoy,” said Jonathan Smith, Head of Production and Strategic Director, TT Games. “Gamers can journey back to Hogwarts for a light-hearted, humorous and interactive journey told through all of the Harry Potter films, sure to delight fans and newcomers alike.”

The compilation features enhanced graphics, environment, and lighting. It also includes two previously released DLC packs. The Character Pack includes Godric Gryffindor, Harry (Yule Ball), Helga Hufflepuff, Lockhart (Straightjacket), Luna (Lion Head), Peeves, Hermione (Pink Dress), Ron Weasley (Ghoul), Rowena Ravenclaw, and Salazar Slytherin. The Spell Pack adds new spells: Cantis, Densaugeo, Ducklifors, Melofors, and Tenaclifors.

The LEGO Harry Potter Collection is available now on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Switch. It’s rated E10+.
