With the overwhelming popularity of the Harry Potter franchise, Warner Home Video (WHV) will step out of the realm of conventional DVDs with a new foray that will allow fans to experience the magic and adventure of the world of Harry Potter like never before. With the release of the Harry Potter Interactive DVD game, fans can experience in a whole new way the challenges that Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry has to offer. Harry Potter: Hogwarts Challenge is designed for the whole family’s enjoyment, as up to four people can play — each at their own chosen skill level.
The first of its kind from WHV, the Harry Potter Interactive DVD Game brings the excitement of Harry Potter into your living room, as you begin your first year at Hogwarts. Get Sorted or choose your favorite house before attending class, participate in extracurricular activities and face exciting Year End Challenges during your first three years at the school. Be sure to keep track of house points, for the one with the most at the end of the third year will compete in a deathly wizard duel and receive tickets to the coveted Quidditch World Cup! Use your DVD player and remote to navigate the moving staircases at Hogwarts, avoid the Whomping Willow, catch the Golden Snitch or escape from the Forbidden Forest! No game boards, dice or pieces are necessary. Based primarily on the first three Happy Potter films, with additional scenes from the fourth and fifth films, the Harry Potter Interactive DVD Game is the perfect blend of action and adventure for Harry Potter enthusiasts!
“It is a privilege for WHV to be able to develop this revolutionary interactive DVD game that showcases one of the most successful franchises spanning the globe,” said Amit Desai, WHV Vice President, Kids and Sports Marketing. “Our goal with our interactive DVD titles is to bring more family-friendly characters to life in a hands-on interactive way that is fun for all.”
The much anticipated Harry Potter: Hogwarts Challenge hits stores on December 11, 2007 and will be available for $24.98 SRP.
