We discovered just this week that Hogwarts Legacy will star Simon Pegg as the infamous Headmaster Phineas Nigellus Black. We’ve also seen more of the gameplay itself in recent weeks, including an extensive tour of the castle and a look at some of the activities available beyond school grounds. It’s clear Avalanche Software is putting a ton of TLC into the game, and it’s shaping up to be an experience that fans have craved for years—as long as you can overlook Wizarding World creator J.K. Rowling’s transphobic remarks over the past couple of years.

Hogwarts Legacy launches on February 10th for Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 5, and PC; on April 4th for Xbox One and PlayStation 4; and on July 25th for Nintendo Switch.
