News: The game based on the sixth Harry Potter movie is coming on June 30.
After Warner Brothers pushed back the movie version of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince to this Summer, Electronic Arts did the same with the video game adaptation. But now that the movie's revised release date of July 17 draws near, EA has announced that game's official release date. The Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince game will be released on June 30, almost three weeks ahead of the movie, on nearly every imaginable platform.
While EA has set a date for the game, the available details are still pretty sparse:
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.
Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince is being developed by EA's Bright Light Studio and will be released for the DS, PC, PS2, PS3, PSP, Wii and Xbox 360.
