  • This is the first game in the series where you can switch between Harry, Ron, and Hermione at most points in the game.
  • The game begins with the trio on the Hogwarts Express, skipping Aunt Marge blowing up, the Knight Bus, and the Leaky Cauldron.
  • Harry's appearance in the game is drastically different, as is his voice, because the video games at this point started paying more attention to resembling the actors from the films.
  • This game is narrated by Stephen Fry, who also narrated the UK editions of the Harry Potter audiobooks.
