Harry Potter Arrives for Halloween

Electronic Arts announced today that the Harry Potter(TM): Quidditch(TM) World Cup videogame has shipped to stores, just in time for Halloween. In the game, Harry Potter fans are able to fully experience the magical power, speed, and competition of Quidditch, the favorite sport of witches and wizards, for the first time. Developed by EA’s UK studios, the team behind the worldwide success of the Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone(TM) and Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets(TM) games, Harry Potter: Quidditch World Cup is available on the PlayStation(R)2 computer entertainment system, the Xbox(TM) video game system from Microsoft, Nintendo GameCube, Game Boy(R) Advance, and PC. The magical sport of Quidditch is an exciting and challenging game involving two teams of seven players who fly on broomsticks, four balls in simultaneous play (one Quaffle, two Bludgers, and the elusive Golden Snitch(TM)), and a unique scoring system. In Harry Potter: Quidditch World Cup, players can control all the Quidditch positions and high-flying moves. Gamers can choose any one of the four Hogwarts(TM) House teams (including Harry Potter’s Gryffindor(TM) and Draco Malfoy’s Slytherin(TM)) to triumph in the Hogwarts(TM) Quidditch Cup before taking a national team to Quidditch World Cup glory. In the international World Cup tournament, players can choose to play for nine different, professional teams, which include the USA, Bulgaria (featuring Viktor Krum), the hard-hitting Nordic Team, England, Japan, France, Germany, Spain and Australia. Sporting their own Quidditch uniforms and unique stadium environment, each nation has different strengths and tactics that lend strategy and depth as players progress through a unique ladder system. Harry Potter: Quidditch World Cup offers both single player and a first-ever multiplayer competition where players compete head-to-head. Connectivity between the Nintendo GameCube and Game Boy Advance also allows players to trade Quidditch cards and team up together for co-operative gameplay. Harry Potter: Quidditch World Cup is rated "E" (Everyone) by the ESRB and carries an MSRP of $39.95 for console platforms and $29.95 for PC and Game Boy Advance. The game’s official website is www.harrypotter.ea.com.
