DS version of Deathly Hallows detailed

Handheld Harry Potter due November.

The DS version of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows will be released this November, EA has announced.

You play Harry Potter as he tries to locate and destroy Voldemort's Horcruxes. Of course, good old Ron and really to old to be playing a school girl Hermione are at Harry's side, mustering powerful magic against Death Eaters and Snatchers.

The action takes place outside of Hogwarts, as it does in the upcoming film. It's all about combining powers in each of the environments. There's puzzle solving and quests, too.

Oh, and don't forget multiplayer. Here, you play either Harry or a Dementor in a race for the highest score.

The DS announcement trailer is below.

Deathly Hallows part 1 – also due out on the PC, PS3, Wii and Xbox 360 – was announced at E3 2010 in June.

The non-DS versions adopt a third-person shooter approach, thanks to a new HD engine developed by EA's Bright Light studio in Guildford. Will Porter went hands-on for Eurogamer.
