Last August, the Leaky Cauldron made a visit to the Electronic Arts company in England to learn about the new Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix video games. Recently a second opportunity was made available to various fan sites, and Donna Hosie made a return trip to visit with the people at Electronic Arts about their new game and all the many new things in store for fans. Along with this cool poster that you will see on the cover of the boxes for the game, and new screen images including these of Dumbledore, Snape, the Trio and McGonagall, Dumbledore in the Ministry, and the Trio, we have a new report from Donna which you can read via this link.
In the first installment of a two-part report, we learn details such as fans will finally hear the lovely Hedwig’s Theme music in the game, that over 85 locations in Hogwarts have been created from the movie blueprints to be used in this game, and “there are 60 missions for the gamers to complete (one example is finding murtlap essence for Harry’s hand), and much more.

If you missed it previously, EA released a new trailer for this game which you can see here in our video galleries; screencaps here; screenshots and previews from the various game platforms galore, here.The Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix video game is due to be released June 25, and will be released on the PS2, PS3, PSP,GBA, PC, Nintendo DS, Xbox 360, and Nintendo Wii platforms.

You guys always have the best scoop on the game... and everything else for that matter. I'm looking forward to this more than any game of recent memory and you continue to whet my appetite. I love that the missions will be directly related to the book, most licenced games get real sloppy in that regard.Avatar Image says: i won't have any money left to get this. lol! mind you i havent finshed the 4th one yet- just cos i couldnt be bothered with it! How will i get through 60 levels- it'd have to be mega amazing! Avatar Image says: hopefully u can walk around the castle and stuff that would make it the best gameAvatar Image says: Why can't they make a decent poster?! Please look at Ron. He looks photoshopped into the picture -- he's the only one wearing robes and his right leg looks like he has one of Hermione's skirts on. Avatar Image says: This game is going to be where I "LIVE" after the book and movie waves have passed! Can hardly wait!
