News: And it's coming to everything.
With the Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince movie being prepped for a November release, EA Games is ready to announced that the video game adaptation will be coming to the DS, PC, PS2, PS3, PSP, Wii and Xbox 360 this November as well.
Developed by EA Bright Light (a new studio who are also working on Zubo for the DS), the game is being designed with the Wii version as the lead platform. According to EA, here's what we can expect from the game:
In the game of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, players will return to Hogwarts to help Harry survive a fraught sixth year. They will also have a chance to engage in exciting wizard duels, mix and brew magical ingredients in Potions class and take to the air to lead the Gryffindor Quidditch team to victory. Players may even get sidetracked by Ron's romantic entanglements as they journey towards a dramatic climax and discover the identity of the Half-Blood Prince.
?We believe that the Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince video game represents a milestone in the movie tie-in genre,? said Harvey Elliott, Head of EA Bright Light studio in the UK where the Harry Potter franchise has its home. ?Building on the technological advancements of previous games in the series and with a particular focus on the unique control system of Nintendo's Wii, the team here is working closely with the filmmakers to create an immersive interactive experience that captures the story, the action, the excitement and, above all, the fun of the film.?
We'll have more soon.
