Nintendo Switch owners will be able to take a trip on the Hogwarts Express next month, as Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has announced its LEGO Harry Potter compilation, LEGO Harry Potter Collection, will be coming to the platform.

LEGO Harry Potter Collection will contain both LEGO Harry Potter: Years 1-4 and LEGO Harry Potter: Years 5-7 on one cartridge.

 

 

The compilation boasts a number of graphical enhancements compared to both LEGO Harry Potters’ original versions, and also contains two DLC packs.

The first, the “Character Pack” DLC, adds Godric Gryffindor, Harry (Yule Ball), Helga Hufflepuff, Lockhart (Straightjacket), Luna (Lion Head), Peeves, Hermione (Pink Dress), Ron Weasley (Ghoul), Rowena Ravenclaw and Salazar Slytherin as playable characters.

The second, a “Spell Pack,” adds “Cantis,” “Densaugeo,” “Ducklifors,” “Melofors” and “Tentaclifors” as spells to the game.

LEGO Harry Potter Collection was released exclusively for the PlayStation 4 in 2016; its debut on the Nintendo Switch nearly two years later will come alongside a release for the Xbox One, as well.

LEGO Harry Potter: Years 1-4 and LEGO Harry Potter: Years 5-7 came out on the Nintendo Wii in North America in 2010 and 2011, respectively, and are based on the movie adaptations of author JK Rowling’s fantasy book series.

LEGO Harry Potter Collection is scheduled to drop for Nintendo Switch in North America on October 30th, with a European release on November 2nd.
