The gameplay reveal trailer for the highly-anticipated Hogwarts Legacy game was met with critical acclaim – but one fan wasn’t expecting to see themselves in the commercial.
Hogwarts Legacy was originally announced in 2020, promising Harry Potter fans a chance to finally achieve their childhood dream of being a student at the famous school of witchcraft and wizardry.
Two years later, a gameplay reveal trailer showed exactly what players can expect from the title – and it’s safe to say the reception was nothing short of ecstatic.
As well as fusing elements from the books and films, students can traverse the castle grounds, get sorted into a house and of course create their own character looking the way they want.
Most notably, the trailer revolved around a single character to showcase what the game has to offer… a character who looked unnervingly similar to Twitch streamer and TFT player Michael “k3soju” Zhang.
The popular Teamfight Tactics streamer tuned into the State of Play on March 17th to essentially witness him engage in a wizard duel and explore Hogwarts in front of hundreds of thousands of viewers.
“Dude, there’s no damn way!” he exclaimed. “There is no possibility!”
“I just don’t get it – who even found this? he asked his chat before reading out a comment that read, “They could totally sue them.”
Overall, it seems like Zhang found the whole ordeal hilarious (and we don’t think he’ll be taking legal action against Avalanche for using his coincidental likeness in the trailer).
Hogwarts Legacy is slated for release on holiday 2022, although no exact date has been set yet. The latest trailer comes just ahead of the movie Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore, which hits theaters early next month.
