EA, the makers of the Harry Potter video games is set to announce this morning details about the Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire videogame. There will be some new features, and a special new look to the game. According to Reuters, for the first time, the virtual characters in the game will look like the actors in the movies.

Potter (played by Daniel Radcliffe), Ron Weasley (Rupert Grint) and Hermione Grange (Emma Watson) are all playable characters in the game and will look the same in both media.

Players also will notice two new game features. When casting a spell, players will “feel the magic” as the controller shakes in reaction to the wand’s motion. Also, co-operative modes allow players to join forces to combine their skills and power.
