    Didn't they have that playstation game where you could do spells with it? It was rather limited but it was back when everyone was trying to be like the Wii.
    It might be cool, but I'd like the button mashing better. PVP could be vocal casting though. That way I could make fun of Taure.

    It was alright. Nothing particularly special, even for the limited motion sensing tech we had available back then.

    I'm waiting for developers to be confirmed.

    If it's Rocksteady (no one knows what they're doing. People theorising a superman or JL game, but not confirmed anywhere), I'll be excited. Even moreso if it's not open world. I love OW games, but Rocksteady's best game was Asylum, not the other two. Make it within Hogwarts and it can very easily feel like a 3D Symphony of the Night - I mean, it's Hogwarts, I can't think of a better setting for a Metroidvania.

    So the story on how the original poster even got the leaked footage is quite interesting, but also very believable from what I can tell.

    https://www.reddit.com/r/harrypotter/comments/9kn1y9/unannounced_harry_potter_rpg_has_crafting/

    He apparently recorded it during one of those Mall Survey things a couple of malls in California tend to have that showcase unreleased trailers (usually those mall survey's are for movies as far as I'm aware) and ask focus groups for opinions and he managed to record it thanks to incompetent WB employees apparently giving zero fucks and not bothering to check him or a few other people if they had a phone or make absolute certain he or they signed the NDA they were given.

    The sequel will be called 'The Last Wizard' and will feature an older Harry Potter being a total dick that is the complete opposite of the man portrayed in the originals.

    lol jk no way rowling would authorize anything that stupid.

    She authorized the Cursed Child and the recent Hogwarts Mystery Mobile game. I can see her authorizing this RPG.

    Cursed Child is roughly in the same shit-tier as The Last Jedi is, and I'm not too impressed with what I've seen of these new movies. Hopefully Rowling stays far away from this game and they have talented enough writers to make the Harry Potter world more interesting.

    I've only ever played one Harry Potter game, and it was the Philosopher's Stone game for PC way back when. It ran like shit on the old computer we had, so I didn't play much of it, but I vaguely remember that to use some spells you had to replicate the wand motions with your mouse. Something like that would make magic more interesting than just pressing a key/button.

    It would also be neat if there were a good (and skippable for NG+) tutorial mission where your actions inclined you to a certain House at the end, though I suppose since the Sorting Hat lets you choose it would only be a strong suggestion. A House reputation system could also be interesting. Furthermore it'd be nice if all Houses had their own pros and cons instead of Hufflepuff just being boring and Slytherin being for edgelords.

    Granted I'm probably setting the bar too high for a Harry Potter game.

    Anyone have a mirror? The original video was deleted. (Which kinda confirms it's real.)

    Edit: Wrong language, seem to do that a lot recently.

    Not sure how long this will be online, they DMCA strike hard.

    I can very easily see this being a Game Awards announcement.

    I’m unsure of the validity, but if it is true it definitely looks exciting. I figured I’d bring it to the forum’s attention.

    What are your thoughts? :)

    EDIT: It seems this has already been posted on the forum, just not in the gaming section, my apologies. I am unsure how to delete a thread, so I suppose I’ll leave that to a moderator.

    A friend mentioned that there's some kind of upcoming convention in New York this weekend that's supposed to have plenty of HP stuff and Rocksteady is going to have a presence, so they might reveal it officially there.

    You fucking wot m8.

    I will become fully erect if they go in depth with the spell system. Give me voice commands and mouse/analogue stick movements. Oh man, leveling up a spell so you can reduce the required movements/cast non verbally. I am down for becoming an Animagus too. #polarbearlyfe

    That'd be cool. Personally though I'd like it to have a first person mode of some kind.

    Most I could see would be verbal spells unless they go full VR.

    My primary concern is whether it will be a good story. Please be better than cursed child

    They would honestly have to go out of their way to be worse than Cursed Child. I'm not even talking shit just for the sake of talking shit. Cursed Child had moments that genuinely baffled me and made me wonder what the hell they were smoking. I don't know how they could possibly make a game that's worse unless they sat around the office, snickering and snorting cocaine.

    Edit: And yet, at the same time, I sort of hope they did snort cocaine while making this.

    Actually looks awesome.

    If they use a powerful magical core as the reason for having the student capable of starting at 5th year, I propose that we change all that hater's titles to Wrong.

    (This is NOT me trying to convince the admins to give me a special title. NOT at all. )

    ;)

    I haven't read through this post in its entirety, so sorry if someone already brought this up:

    If the game is set in the late nineteenth century, isn't it possible we could be going to school with Dumbledore?
