Harry Potter strikes again

Further wizardy from Potter and EA, with the series now making the move to next-gen in Order of the Phoenix

The inevitable Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix videogame is being brought to - wait for it - Wii, PS3, Xbox 360, PS2, PSP, DS, GBA and PC by EA in 2007.

It's launch set to coincide with the release of the Order of the Phoenix movie next July, the game relives the fifth-instalment adventures of Potter and pals as the wizard and witch war between Lord Voldermort and his minions and the good guys escalates.

"The close and synergistic relationship between book, film and videogame is more defined in the Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix videogame than ever before. Players will be able to explore the many key locations within Hogwarts in minute detail, each one a visual match to its film equivalent, while being engrossed in the thrilling adventures outlined in the rich narrative of the book", EA informs.


Potter fanatics can look forward to controlling many of the series famous characters - Harry obviously, along with the likes of Dumbledore and Sirius Black - throughout the tale in locations that EA promises "accurately reflect the world showcased in the film".
