Dare you return to Hogwarts?

Be Harry Potter and unlock the mystery at the heart of the Chamber of Secrets. With dire warnings from strange quarters and dark schemes afoot, Harry’s second adventure will be every bit as magical – and dangerous – as his first. But this time the spells are more potent, the foes are more fearsome, and Harry’s friends are more important than ever.

The Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets video game was released by Electronic Arts on November 15, 2002. It was developed by Eurocom for the PlayStation, PlayStation 2, Xbox, and GameCube systems. It was also released for PC/Mac, Game Boy Advance, and Game Boy Color.

  • In the PC/Mac version, there is a secret level called "Gryffindor Challenge" that is only accessible with debug mode.
  • Hufflepuffs wear purple in the game instead of yellow.
