During a recent promotional event for the Harry Potter open-world action-RPG, Hogwarts Legacy, film star Tom Felton, best known as Draco Malfoy, found himself emotionally moved while experiencing the game. Hogwarts Legacy draws heavily from the film series’ style and aesthetics, paying homage to the universe that helped define its popular appeal.
The Harry Potter saga has largely been a monumental triumph, apart from the last two Fantastic Beasts films which met with a lukewarm response at the box office. The film series is among the highest-earning in cinema history and Hogwarts Legacy has followed suit, breaking numerous sales records. So, it was a delight for fans to witness these two realms converge.
The Emotional Return of Tom Felton to Hogwarts
This fascinating moment occurred when Tom Felton embarked on Sebastian Sallow’s quest in Hogwarts Legacy in a recent video. As he navigated his custom-designed character through the Slytherin common room, he was asked if the game evoked a sense of familiarity and comfort.
Overwhelmed with nostalgia, Felton confessed,“Yes, it feels like home. Yet it’s brand-new, thrilling, and strangely echoes my childhood memories.”
Felton’s engagement with the Sebastian Sallow quest was part of a comprehensive marketing strategy for Hogwarts Legacy that coincided with the game’s release on PS4 and Xbox One. Despite initial concerns that the game’s performance on the previous generation consoles would be inferior to that on PS5 and Xbox Series X, the consensus suggests that it functions reasonably well on the older systems.
Delays and Anticipations: Hogwarts Legacy on PS4, Xbox One, and Switch
Potentially, the successive launch delays for Hogwarts Legacy on PS4 and Xbox One may have enabled the game to deliver an impressive performance on these consoles. Likewise, Nintendo Switch players are optimistic that the latest considerable postponement for their version will yield similar benefits. Originally slated for release on July 25th, the launch of Hogwarts Legacy on the Nintendo Switch has been rescheduled to November 14th.
There are high anticipations for the Nintendo Switch version of Hogwarts Legacy as it hasn’t been publicly showcased yet. Meanwhile, Harry Potter enthusiasts can enjoy the complete gaming experience on PC, PlayStation, and Xbox consoles. This includes the Sebastian Sallow quest, which is captured in the emotional video featuring Tom Felton.
Hogwarts Legacy is presently available for PS4, PS5, Windows PC, Xbox One, and the Xbox Series X, with the Nintendo Switch version scheduled for release on the previously mentioned November 14th date.
