Although the Harry Potter franchise lives on within the Fantastic Beasts film series currently, fans await more content to come to the series penned by author J.K. Rowling.

However, that was a spell short of being properly executed. In a later statement from Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment & Avalanche Software, the firms disclosed that Hogwarts Legacy will receive a 2022 release instead. Thankfully, a separate State of Play will be held featuring the plans for the upcoming game including unique footage.

Now with the livestream airing, we learned more about Hogwarts Legacy including how gameplay is structured, where to progress as a wizard in training, and that this holiday will be the time frame for the release. You can watch the gameplay footage in the video below:

One eye-opening discovery from information that released following the new gameplay reveal is that Hogwarts Legacy will also be releasing on Nintendo Switch. Initially, the title was featured at a PlayStation 5 Showcase which explains the recent State of Play setting. But, it is expected to be a more demanding title for even base Xbox One/PlayStation 4 – let alone Nintendo Switch.

Rather than an understandable decision to ship a cloud version, this is not the case for Hogwarts Legacy. Whilst it is unnecessary for some Kingdom Hearts titles and the three received the change.
