Hogwarts Legacy is one of the most anticipated games in recent times… And now we finally know which voice actors will appear. The game returns fans to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter since 2011 Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part II and promises to be much more comprehensive. The game is developed by Avalanche Software and will be distributed by Warner Bros. Interactive entertainment.
In terms of gameplay, players will attend classes at Hogwarts, leveling up as they do so. The game also has light RPG elements and a crafting system. The game world will be rich, including a variety of locations seen throughout the game Harry Potter franchise.
Perhaps the biggest name appearing on the voice acting list Simon Pegg, who plays Phineas Nigellus Black, a heartbroken Slytherin who also happens to be the current Headmaster of Hogwarts. Here’s an interview with Pegg describing his character – and yes, the name “Black” means he has an important connection to Harry Potter history…
Sebastian Croft and Amelia Gething will provide the voices for the player character. Lesley Nicol appears to voice Matilda Weasley. Kandace Caine plays an emotionally traumatized divination teacher. Satyavati Shah will be voiced by Sohm Kapila. Shah is a scientist and professor of astronomy who prefers reading to being bothered by students. Luke Youngblood, the actor who played Lee Jordan in the films, is returning to the franchise in a new role. This time he is Everett Clopton, a troubled Ravenclaw. Jason Anthony also appears to voice both Gryffindor’s house ghost, Nearly-Headless Nick, and The Sorting Hat.
Looks like the game has a pretty stacked lineup! It also has a staggered release schedule. Hogwarts Legacy will be released on Playstation 5, Xbox Series X|S and PC on February 10. The Playstation 4 and Xbox One versions will launch on April 4th, and the Nintendo Switch port will be playable on July 25th.
