Weasley Twins Not Included in "Half-Blood Prince" Video Game

The characters of Fred and George Weasley are apparently not included in the upcoming Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince video game. In a new interview, actors James and Oliver Phelps say they were not asked to record their voices as the characters they portray in the Harry Potter films are not included in the new game from EA. Quotage:

James: Our characters aren't in the game really as much because they're not at school and that's primarily where all the game is based. So unfortunately we weren't asked this one. But as we said earlier, it was cool that EA still said come and see how it's coming along and what you think. And they showed us how even the characters have got individual hair, the detail is amazing in it.
Oliver: And in the house it showed like different levels in the water, and how, progressing throughout the day and night, how the light changes on the water. Details like this - one or two guys, that's their job to make sure that that's perfect. You take that for granted when you're playing the game, but when you go around seeing all the individual jobs you really appreciate it.

You can read the entire interview with the Phelps here courtesy of Snitchseeker.

Thanks Emma!

Too bad they couldn’t include a part where you visit WWW. Fred and George are such great parts of the books, movie, and games.

I don’t care if they’re in the game. They’re in the movie, that’s what counts.

:( That’s pretty lame they’re not gonna be in it. Especially as they still got Colin Creevey in the 5th game though he hadn’t been seen in the movies since CoS. But ah well I still can’t wait until I can play it!!

I don’t play video games, but that’s too bad. It is understandable, though. Too bad they won’t include WWW, though.

It is a pity that the Weasley twins were not incorporated into the game; who doesn’t love them?

Aw, no Weasleys’ Wizard Wheezes? Oh, well. I just hope that it’s better than the OotP game. I was disappointed with that one. I still love the CoS game boy color game. That was such a well developed game, especially for its time. There was so much to do in it. I still play it.
