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

Video Games

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!

I was interested in getting this one. Still working on it? HBP was suppose to be released last November. Don’t the games usually come out a little later? I will miss Fred and George. They could have let them have a camio appearance. Lol

It’s a shame they’re not going to be in it…I suppose it will be less awkward for the fans to only see one of the twins in the Deathly Hallows game…if they’re in that…

I loved the last Harry Potter game. The parts with the twins in was good. However I can understand the decision, I can’t wait for the release of the HBP movie and film, it’s my favourite book out of the Harry Potter’s.

I don’t really play the games anyway, so it doesn’t really make a difference to me.

I don’t play the games, so it’s no big deal to me. But still, no Weasley twins seems like a crime!

Guess That Book

There was a knock on the door of their compartment and the round-faced boy Harry had passed on platform nine and threequarters came in. He looked tearful.[br] "Sorry," he said, "but have you seen a toad at all?"
