It’s launch day for LEGO Harry Potter: Years 1-4. Given that launch day generally means launch trailer, we have a brand new trailer for you posted below.

Managing Director at TT Games, Tom Stone, was quoted calling LEGO Harry Potter their “best LEGO game yet” involving adventures of breaking out of your Aunt and Uncle’s house on Privet Drive for the first time all the way to the epic and dangerous Triwizard Tournament. Along the way you will take classes at Hogwarts, learning to cast spells and mix potions as well as partake in the gym portion of your academic career (except this time it’s flying on broomsticks and wearing a cape instead of doing pull-ups in over-sized gym shirts).

Take a look below at the new trailer. The game is available on the PC, DS, PSP, 360, PS3, Wii and probably a few other consoles we haven’t come up with yet.
