Warner Bros. Interactive announced today that it is bringing its Lego Harry Potter games to the PlayStation 4 in a single package. It’s called Lego Harry Potter Collection, and it will come out on PlayStation 4 on October 18 for $50. Warner Bros. did not mention a release for Xbox One.
The Lego games have done well by taking advantage of strong franchises like Star Wars, Marvel, and Harry Potter. Harry Potter is becoming more relevant thanks to the recent release of a new book, The Cursed Child, and the upcoming film Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.
Lego Harry Potter Collection contains both games in the series, Years 1-4 and Years 5-7, and the Character Pack and Spell Pack downloadable content bundles. Both will have enhanced graphics on the PlayStation 4.
Remasters of games for the last generation of consoles, including the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, have become a popular practice for the newer systems. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim and the BioShock series are also getting updated releases this year.
