When is the Hogwarts Legacy Switch release date? Many of you worldwide have long been waiting for your very own acceptance letter to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Yet, no matter how many times we all slept in the cupboard under the stairs as a kid, the letter never came. Well, that doesn’t matter any more muggles, as Hogwarts Legacy promises to take you on a magical journey that you could previously only embark on in your dreams.

Of course, if you’re looking for even more wizarding goodness, we recommend you check out our Hogwarts Legacy charactersHogwarts Legacy spells, and Hogwarts Legacy beast guides.

What is the Hogwarts Legacy Switch release date?

The Hogwarts Legacy Switch release date is July 25, 2023, as it has dropped back behind the PC, Playstation and Xbox releases. There’s no mobile release date. Make sure you check out our Hogwarts Legacy pre-order guide to nab yourself a copy.

What is the Hogwarts Legacy story?

Thanks to the Hogwarts Legacy State of Play, we know that you’re a new student at the titular school. However, the interesting thing is that you’re a fifth-year pupil. This is a rare thing indeed as 99% of Hogwarts students begin at a younger age in the first year. Still, we say better late than never to the acceptance letter.

Throughout the game, you get to attend Hogwarts Legacy classes, explore the school grounds, and visit neighbouring locations. Of course, this is an RPG, so you can expect to make some crucial decisions, such as which house you belong to. For us, it’s a no-brainer. Slytherin is the place to be.

From the trailer, it does appear as though you can learn the forbidden arts, so it will be interesting to see what this means for our character and whether or not we can venture to the dark side.

Is there a Hogwarts Legacy trailer?
