Electronic Arts, maker of the entire Potter video game series, today has a new game to announce: Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix! In a press release issued this afternoon, EA had this to say about the game's uniqueness:

The close and synergistic relationship between book, film and videogame is more defined in the Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix videogame than ever before. Players will be able to explore the many key locations within Hogwarts in minute detail, each one a visual match to its film equivalent, while being engrossed in the thrilling adventures outlined in the rich narrative of the book.

With the ability to play multiple characters, including Harry Potter, Dumbledore and Sirius Black, the videogame of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix offers fans the opportunity to wield a wand, explore all around Hogwarts, and experience one of the most exciting and dangerous years in the life of the Boy Who Lived.

You can see four screenshots from the game in our gallery! The game will be released for all gaming consoles on July 13th, 2007 - the same day of the US and UK release of the film.
