In order to match the aesthetics of the game, these have been modified to match the more cartoonish atmosphere of the game and the graphics engine used. They remain recognizable even if they are much less stylized than the originals, and among the changes we can note for example that on the Hufflepuff badge, the badger looks in the opposite direction compared to that present in the films and books. A detail that did not fail to make the purists of the universe of the most famous wizard of England grumble.

Harry Potter : new look for a new house
This is not the first time that the designs of the crests of the 4 houses have changed. to match the intentions or technical needs of the media that adapt the adventures of the world ofHarry Potter. These have changed enormously since the first books written by JK Rowking, who had recently won the support of Russian President Vladimir Putin, and to which she responded with a scathing manner. On PS1, the technical limitations of the console did not allow to be able to display as much detail when the first Harry Potter game was released. So the developers had to come up with other versions of the symbols to to be able to preserve the imagery of the four houses.
Harry Potter Hogwarts Legacy: Hogwarts Legacy will be available on all 8th and 9th generation consoles, as well as PC. During the recent controversies surrounding JK Rowling’s supposed transphobia, the game developers made the decision to allow free character creation, without blocking between, for example, the male voices and the female bodies offered by the software. These changes had already been much appreciated in other games, such as the recent Borderlands 3 and its sequel Tiny Tina Wonderlands or the fact of being able to give a non-binary character to his character had been mostly welcomed by the players.
