While their origins may have been speculative the Lego video games are big business now. With variants gracing nearly every platform you can think of they all offer up the same basic gameplay hooks across a wide range of popular franchises. One of the most modern of these franchises is the Harry Potter series, a glowing endorsement of the power of the brand to have made it into such esteemed company. The latest in the series, Lego Harry Potter: Years 5–7, found its way to the rest of the gaming world back in November 2011 making this Vita port an ever so slightly younger sibling. With the Vita’s power and graphical shininess in mind this release could have been a leading star in a product list still small enough for the market to flock wholesale to popular titles. ‘Could have been’ being the operative phrase here.
