Return to the School of Witchcraft and Wizardry Today with LEGO Harry Potter: Years 5-7 on iOS Devices

In life, there are two facts against which nobody can argue: anything bearing the LEGO branding will sell and anything bearing the Harry Potter branding will sell. Needless to say, when you combine the two brands into one product, you are sitting on the precipice of an expansive fortune. LEGO Harry Potter is a franchise that has far surpassed that precipice at this point, but the game is by no means done accumulating wealth as its latest incarnation, LEGO Harry Potter: Years 5-7, is now available on iOS devices.

LEGO Harry Potter: Years 5-7 pays homage to the final three books and last four films of the Harry Potter series and, in doing so, lets players experience the most climactic moments of Harry, Ron, and Hermione’s closing years at Hogwarts. By simply tapping the screen, users are able to cast spells and target the objects with which they might go about solving the title’s vast array of engaging puzzles; further prompts activated by utilizing an iOS device’s unique interface will allow players to toggle which of the many characters and spells found in Year 5-7 that most fit the situation.

Included exclusively in the iOS version of LEGO Harry Potter: Years 5-7 is a special Dueling Club expansion, a mode in which players can trade spells with some of the magic world’s most prolific witches and wizards.

LEGO Harry Potter: Years 5-7 is now available on iPad, iPhone, and iPod Touch for $4.99 via the App Store.
