EA and Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment today confirmed that Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince video game will be in stores across the world from June 30, just ahead of the Warner Bros. Pictures' film. The game will be available in the UK from July 3, 2009.

In the game players will return to Hogwarts to help Harry survive a fraught sixth year and will engage in wizard duels, mix and brew magical ingredients in Potions class and take to the air to lead the Gryffindor Quidditch team to victory.

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince will be released on July 3 for Wii, PS3, Xbox 360, PS2, PSP, Nintendo DS and PC.
