Lego Harry Potter Years 5-7 - What Can We Expect?

The final installment of Lego Harry Potter (Years 5-7) is about to land onto the PSP and Nintendo DS/DSi and 3DS consoles. What can we expect from the game, and will Harry's 3DS debut be as popular as the other Lego titles before him?

Lego Harry Potter: Years 5-7 promises to be an family-fun, action-packed game from start to finish. Players can play through a total of twenty-four different events spread across the remaining titles of the Harry Potter books - Order of the Phoenix, Half-Blood Prince, and of course, The Deathly Hallows.

The game will also seek to build upon the various spells and incantations learnt in Lego Harry Potter: Years 1-4  and will teach players to master more advanced magic including the Unforgivable Curses. in the fight against the evil Lord Voldermort and his army of Death Eaters.

The game will also introduce new locations including Godric's Hollow, The Ministry of Magic and Grimmauld Place, amongst others.

Although the gameplay varies very little between the various platforms, the 3DS version of Lego Harry Potter: Years 5-7 has the advantage of greater depth and stunning visuals to add to the adventure, and Mini Gamers sees no reason why this game shouldn't be as brilliant as the previous 3DS Lego titles - Lego Star Wars III: The Clone Wars and Lego Pirates of the Caribbean

Official UK Trailer
Lego Harry Potter: Years 5-7 is set to launch in the UK on Friday the 18th of November 2011. Look out for the full review of the game shortly afterwards.


  1. How do you get the Unforgivable Curse in Lego Harry Potter years 5-7? Please, tell me as soon as you can!


  2. Hi Anonymous, it seems as though the three unforgivable curses can only be used by 'dark' wizards, such as Bellatrix Lastrange, Lucius Malfoy, Voldermort etc. Thus, you must unlock these characters first... Hope that helps.

  3. you cant get the crutatius curse

  4. Will the price drop near or on june.

    1. Hi, although Mini Gamers has heard rumours of a price-drop for this game, we are unable to confirm exactly when this will occur at present, however we will endeavour to let you know when the information becomes more concrete.

      Thanks for your comment!
