A Hogwarts Legacy fan creates custom PS5 console cover palettes each for Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw, and Slytherin as available house options.
Instead of taking fans through the already established and familiar world of Harry Potter, Hogwarts Legacy‘s narrative is set to iterate upon the universe in a unique era that WB Games’ Avalanche Software can hopefully have some creative license with. However, there will of course be many nods to Harry Potter as Hogwarts Legacy is set in Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.
The castle itself will be familiar to fans of the film and novel franchises, as well as the classes offered for its students. Likewise, the iconic houses that students are initially sorted into in their first year are the same in Hogwarts Legacy‘s 1800s time period. Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw, and Slytherin will all be available as Hogwarts houses players can choose from in Hogwarts Legacy. This is one of fans’ most desired features from the game, and one fan has gone as far as to show their excitement with custom console designs.
Redditor u/Geraltze, or Sam De Riv, has made concepts for custom PS5 palette covers that represent each of Hogwarts’ four houses with distinct colors and their animal mascots. The covers marry Hogwarts Legacy‘s main insignia with the house’s animal representative, such as Hufflepuff’s badger. Hogwarts Legacy‘s house selection will effectively determine the colorful robes players will wear and the common room they will inhabit in their leisure, but it is unsure how far this personalization will extend out from these aesthetic features.
Custom PS5 concepts for each Hogwarts house, if made official, would allow players to further represent their Hogwarts house of choice as they play. Interestingly, Hogwarts Legacy will not select players’ houses at random or from a suggestive survey quiz beforehand. Players will instead be able to openly choose their house, probably as part of Hogwarts Legacy‘s custom character creator. Besides just a unique color palette per house, Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw, and Slytherin suggest what the student’s primary personality traits are by who is affiliated to which house.
Slytherin is commonly seen as a villainous choice while Hufflepuff is seen as meek, but there are other definitive qualities associated to each house and any student can feel like they belong to any of them. If houses are truly unique in Hogwarts Legacy‘s gameplay, there may be a chance that players see their house represented on the Quidditch pitch or even at the year’s-end ceremony to see which house will be awarded the House Cup for the most awarded points.
Hogwarts Legacy is currently scheduled to release Holiday 2022 for Nintendo Switch, PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
