"It's not often that you get to play as a dog in games...especially a LEGO dog," says one of TT Games' dev team in this latest behind the scenes trailer for LEGO Harry Potter: Years 1-4. We can't argue with that. We honestly can't remember playing as a LEGO dog before. A dog, yes. A LEGO dog? No.
Focusing on LEGO Harry Potter's characters...sorry...'spellbinding characters', the video shows the difference between each character's abilities, from Harry's Nimbus 2000 prowess to Ron's rubbish, floaty control over the broomstick and Hermione's complete lack of flying skill.
There's also a quick rundown of all the best HP characters, from Hagrid to Voldemort and Dumbledore (who needs unlocking) to charming LEGO dog, Fang, who can climb ladders. A ladder climbing dog? Count that as another first.
Check out the trailer right here. LEGO Harry Potter: Years 1-4 will be out at the end of the month, and there's a demo available now on Xbox Live.
