So word on these cyber streets is that Warner Bros.’ Avalanche Software — the Utah-based studio behind licensed games such as Toy Story and the Disney Infinity series — is hard at work on an “open-world action RPG” set in the world of Harry Potter. When my noisy ears heard of this, I brushed it aside. Didn’t give it a second thought, however when I SAW the gameplay and read up on it, well….lets just say I’m going on a one-way trip to Hogwarts.
According to Polygon who I believe broke the news first:

Reading all that text isn’t going to help visuals the epicness that my Sharingan witnessed, so I surfed DEEP into the virtual web to find something to show you. BEHOLD!
Unfortunately, this is the best I could do, I used my Sharingan to analyse the trailer which drained my chakra a lot so yeah. So you’re going to have trust my word when I say this. From what I saw, this game looks top quality stuff, and it’s not one of those smaller titles that we’ve been getting so far. This might be THE Harry Potter that we’ve been waiting for! We just have to wait for the official release!
