Thanks again to Casey for sending this tip:
EA Games showed this teaser trailer for Harry Potter: Quidditch Cup at the E3 convention yesterday. Click on the link to download and view! It's in Apple QuickTime format, and is 12.1MB in size. Right-click on the link to save it to your computer.
Here's a shot-by-shot rundown (thanks, Casey):
- It starts off showing a Gryffindor player putting on Quidditch equipment, then switches to the team on the bench and shows a close-up of them grabbing their brooms (all Nimbus 2000s). Then the team is going to the Quidditch field and flying out to the stadium.
- Next, Malfoy and Harry are glaring at each other, and then it shows an actual Quidditch match. Players are passing the quaffle, flying around, and scoring.
- Then it switches to "Japan vs USA" and shows a Quidditch game taking place in the Japanese stadium (beautiful sunset and the Quidditch players are wearing outfits similar to Samuris).
- Next we get to see a Norway vs England game, in an icy Norway stadium. It shows one player grabbing a piece of an iceberg and swinging around to avoid a bludger. Then it shows Harry and Malfoy chasing the snitch back in the Quidditch stadium.
Here are some extremely high-quality (and big) pictures of the video game in action!
