Wannabe wizards are in for a treat this summer with the release of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix which EA is promising will feature gesture-based spell casting.

"Instead of pressing buttons to fire off specific spells, we use each console's unique controls," Executive producer, Harvey Elliott told GameSpot. "So if you want to use 'depulso' to push an object away from you, you press the right analogue stick forward on the 360 and PS2, you push the Sixaxis controller away from you on the PS3, and, of course, you flick your 'wand' away from you on the Wii."

It's more than just spells that will be given the motion overhaul, Elliott revealing how players will "slide the Sixaxis or Wii Remote from side to side as though you were lighting a match".

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix is scheduled for release across leading platforms on June 29.
