Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire Video Game Potter and friends come together for the video game.
Even though I am not usually a fan of video games based off popular children's movies, the upcoming Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire video game is bound to have a lot of sales with its broom-riding and magic-throwing mayhem.

Goblet of Fire the Video Game


Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire: The Video Game will be coming out for just about every gaming console [including computer] some time between November 8th and the 15th. Considering that the movie is due out to theatres on November 18th, I am figuring that EA Games and Warner Bros figured that Potter fever would be at its highest and what a better time to release a game then just before the film.

In the Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire videogame, licensed by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, Harry is mysteriously selected as the fourth contestant in the dangerous Triwizard Tournament . Each competitor in the international competition must confront a fire-breathing dragon, rescue friends from the icy depths of the Black Lake, and navigate the twisting mysteries of a vast, dangerous maze. Players can experience the thrills of the movie-from the Quidditch World Cup campsite to a heart-stopping duel with Lord Voldemort himself!

Harry, Ron, and Hermione are all playable characters, modeled after their big-screen counterparts. An all-new spell-casting system allows players to really feel the magic for the first time as the controller shakes and reacts with every flick of the wand. Gamers can team up with friends in co-operative play to combine magic and produce more powerful spells than ever before!

    Key Features
  • All the Magic of the Movie - The magical world of Harry Potter comes to life with characters modeled after their big-screen counterparts, cinematic environments, captivating gameplay, and a compelling interactive experience.
  • Bigger, Better Magic - Players explore the game's all-new spell-casting system, unleashing powerful spells to become a master of magic; feel the controller shake with every flick of the wand!
  • Co-operative Play - In another first for the franchise, players can join forces with friends to navigate the world of Harry Potter, combining powers and casting spells co-operatively to create more powerful magic.
  • Compelling Rewards System - Players can use "Accio" to chase down and capture dynamic living beans, as well as increase the power of Harry, Ron, and Hermione with Collector's and Creature Cards.

EA Games was also kind enough to send over some gameplay screenshots from Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire which feature the kids blasting away with magic [below].
