Microsoft and Warner Bros have announced Harry Potter Kinect for Xbox 360.
The game will recreate a number of the key scenes from the seven books (or eight films, if you prefer) and see players casting spells by mimicking the famous wand-flick action with their hands. Also expect to be calling out famous spells which will be recognised via voice recognition.
It will also allows gamers to scan their faces into the title to create their very own unique witch or wizard who will accompany stars Harry, Ron and Hermione.
It’s being developed by Goldeneye 007:Legends and Dead Space: Extraction studio Eurocom
Harry Potter for Kinect will engage Harry Potter fans old and new by bringing them into the wizarding world as truly active participants,” Warner Interactive’s senior VP of production and development Samantha Ryan stated.
Kids and parents will enjoy recreating their favourite Harry Potter adventures, from flying a broomstick in a Quidditch match, to battling pixies and duelling other wizards.”
Here’s the debut trailer:
