A new Lego Harry Potter game is in development for the Sony NGP and a host of other consoles.

Lego Harry Potter: Years 5-7 looks set to be one of the first videogames available on the NGP, Sony's new portable console.

The Warner Bros Interactive title does not yet have an official release date, but it is expected to hit stores between October and December this year.

In an announcement, the company said Sony's forthcoming handheld console will be one of many platforms to receive the game.

Also due for release during the fourth quarter of 2011, the NGP is the successor to Sony's PSP and boasts a five-inch touchscreen, twin cameras and Wi-Fi support among its range of features.

Following on from Lego Harry Potter: Years 1-4, the new Lego game will be based on the last three Harry Potter books and the final four films in the series.

"We are giving gamers a truly epic conclusion to the most successful movie franchise in history with delightful gameplay for fans of all ages," said Tom Stone, managing director of developer TT Games.
