Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix game in the works

Harry PotterWhy aren’t we surprised at all? We did see this coming. And it’s all good. While the past videogame incarnations of Harry Potter were forgettable, we’re eager to see what the next-gen versions have to offer. We can already picture players swishing and flicking the Wiimote while uttering “Alohamora!”

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix videogame will be the first in the franchise to be developed for the next-gen consoles. EA and Warner Bros. promise an accurate representation of the events surrounding J.K. Rowlings’ fifth book, which happens to be Harry Potter’s fifth year at Hogwarts.

The game will allow players to explore Hogwarts and take on missions presented in the book/movie.

Playable characters include Harry Potter (of course!), Dumbledore, and Sirius Black. Too bad, Ron and Hermione are non-playable. But we’re pretty sure they’ll get some exposure throughout the game.

The game is slated for a July 2007 release to coincide with the film. It’ll also be released for the PSP, PS2, Gameboy Advance, and Windows PC.
