You could trawl through Tumblr, Reddit and Twitter and find any number of fan theories about Harry's parents dying and Snape's love for Lilly Potter.

Although, to be fair, despite being a book and film series people associate with children, Harry Potter deals with some complex issues and topics.

Anyway, Entertainment Weekly has found out that a new game is coming out and it's going to blow that PS2 version straight out the water. It is a prequel, with some of the same professors but a cast of new characters.

According to the Jam City CEO Chris DeWolfe, his company's game is an homage to one of the "most iconic brands in history". "There is a trend to invest in established IP to serve as a flagship to get more attention in a crowded environment".
