LEGO Harry Potter for DS "A Bit Zelda-y"

The latest issue of Official Nintendo Magazine has a preview of the LEGO Harry Potter game for the Nintendo DS. An article on the magazine's website has an excerpt from Official Nintendo Magazine's interview with the game's Lead Designer, Arthur Parsons. Noting that the DS LEGO Harry Potter game is "completely different" from the game for the Nintendo Wii console, Mr. Parsons comments:

It's an isometric adventure-style game. You use the stylus to guide your characters around. It's a bit Zelda-y. You can use a gesturing system to cast spells by drawing shapes on the touch screen.
Issue 52 of Official Nintendo Magazine is out now.

Being “Zelda-y” is certainly a good thing.

Looks like it’s already decided that I’m not going to get in on DS. I think that the Lego DS games are really bad, but that’s just my opinion. I’m soooo gonna get it on Wii.

The commercial for the game looks very cute. I’d love to play it.

EFF! My DS just died a while ago after a long battle with a broken hinge. Wish it was still alive so I could play this baby :(

No, no, no! This means it won’t be like the other LEGO games. This will be like LEGO battles. No good graphics, and everything will be messed up.

That’s the way the other HP games were for the DS. I prefer the console HP games myself.
