LEGO Harry Potter DS Gift Pack Coming Just in Time for Black Friday


Ah, the holidays. ‘Tis the season for gobs of game releases, exciting hardware launches, Black Friday deals and gift bundle offerings aplenty. Warner Bros. is nailing two of those holiday birds with one stone, today announcing plans to re-release the Nintendo DS version of LEGO Harry Potter: Years 1-4 in a special Gift Pack bundle.

Scheduled to hit retailers on November 22nd — just in time for Black Friday madness! — the LEGO Harry Potter: Years 1-4 Gift Pack will bring the magic and wizardry of Harry Potter back to the DS, only this time it will also contain a few extra bobbles and trinkets that are sure to please the Harry Potter fan on your shopping list. Those extra goodies include a 48-page color “gamer guide,” a stylus branded with the game’s logo, and a LEGO Harry Potter mini-figure.

No indication of how much the Gift Pack version will cost, but I’m assuming it’ll have the same $30 launch price of the regular edition. I have a request for clarification in to WB PR, and will update this post if/when I hear back.
