EA has announced that Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire will be released for PlayStation 2, PSP, Xbox, Nintendo GameCube, Nintendo DS, Game Boy Advance, and Windows PC this November. The game will be released in conjunction with the Warner Bros. Pictures film.
"Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire is the fifth Harry Potter videogame we have created, and we are incredibly excited with the fresh innovations that the team has brought to the game," said Harvey Elliott, Executive Producer at EAUK. "With high anticipation for the film and our strong relationship with Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, we have been able to develop a game that complements the film in this exciting addition to the Harry Potter franchise."
"Working with EA, we look forward to offering players a highly developed Harry Potter game with Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire," said Jason Hall, Senior Vice President for Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. "The game will possess the extremely creative aspects of the Harry Potter world captured in both the film and the book, giving fans a complete interactive experience."
Harry, Ron and Hermione are all playable in the game and an all new spell-casting system allows the player to experience the magic via the controller's vibrations. Players can also team-up and play the game co-operatively to cast even more powerful spells.
The game is under development by EA's UK Studio who were responsible for library of Harry Potter games and is expected to be one of EA's major releases over this year's Christmas period.
