The promotional video shows how Hogwarts Legacy performed on the Switch nine months after it was released on other platforms. The preview is remarkable for being the first in-depth look at Hogwarts Legacy’s port to Nintendo’s portable console, with footage showing the overworld’s people and big landscapes through the Switch’s lens.
Hogwarts Legacy is a prequel video game based on the enormously popular Harry Potter books that takes place over a hundred years before the events of the original material. The plot revolves around a student who transfers to the titular School of Witchcraft and Wizardry and finds himself unwittingly entangled in the hunt for a mysterious old secret.
Aside from the titular school, Hogwarts Legacy contains other renowned Harry Potter locations such as Ollivanders, the Forbidden Forest, and Hogsmeade Valley.
The premium edition also includes a Dark Arts DLC pack that contains a Thestral mount, a one-of-a-kind cosmetic costume, and access to a unique Dark Arts Battle Arena where players may try out the infamous Unforgivable Curses early on.

Avalanche Software developers previously detailed how they adapted the universe of Harry Potter to the video game medium and how hard the Hogwarts Legacy team worked to capture the sheer enormity of the iconic structure.
Several members explained how the scale and scope of Hogwarts transformed the grounds into one of the most complicated locations the firm had ever built, with developers becoming lost in their surroundings. “Hogwarts Legacy is the ultimate fan love letter.” One participant stated, “It’s the best way to experience this universe.”

While Hogwarts Legacy received favorable reviews upon its initial release, the lead-up to its publication was marred by controversy due to earlier public comments made by Harry Potter creator J. K. Rowling.
The public outcry and boycott call for Hogwarts Legacy were so widespread that Warner Bros. Interactive Head David Haddad issued a statement denying Rowling’s involvement in the game’s development, claiming that the studio and publisher wanted every Harry Potter fan to enjoy the video game.
