  Quidditch World Cup game is coming soon
Updated 17 September 2003, 15.54
Harry Potter in the Quidditch World Cup console game

Muggles will finally be able to battle it out on their broomsticks when Harry Potter: Quidditch World Cup is released onto games consoles.

The much-anticipated multi-platform game is coming out on 7 November.

It's set to be the closest experience to the real thing, as you fight for control of the pitch - and the Golden Snitch.

Whizzy and dirty

Quidditch World Cup game
The aim of the game is to move through the skills, Hogwarts Cup and World Cup sections of the game by taking control of the house team of your choice.

To do this you use your Chasers, Beaters, Keeper and Seeker, just like in the books.

A sneak look at the game suggests it's fast, whizzy and dirty, just how you'd expect Quidditch to be.

Characters from each house show you how to play each move, including Harry Potter and Draco Malfoy.

Earn spells

Quidditch World Cup game
And there's a bonus section where you get to play in the original Queer Ditch arena if you manage to win the Quidditch World Cup.

It's going to be released on Xbox, GameCube, Play Stations 1 and 2 and PC at the same time.

Also announced was the release of Harry Potter and The Philosopher's Stone on Xbox, GameCube and PS2. It's similar to the PC and Play Station 1 version but the graphics are better, plus you now have to earn spells through completing challenges.

On this version you can also fly through Hogwarts at night, getting knocked off your broomstick by teachers.
