If you have ever dreamed of living in the world of Harry Potter, you are in luck. Harry Potter for Kinect will be weaving its spell this fall exclusively on Kinect for the Xbox 360.
The game is based on all eight Harry Potter films and players will jump in the roles of Harry Potter, Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger as they learn the ways of magic and mischief in Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry and other familiar locations.
Using the Kinect’s scanning technology, players will be able to scan their face and create a unique witch or wizard that will be a playable character. The hands-free controller will allow players to cast spells with the flick of the wrist or by calling out spell names.
“Harry Potter for Kinect will engage Harry Potter fans old and new by bringing them into the wizarding world as truly active participants,” said Samantha Ryan, Senior Vice President, Production and Development, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. “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.”
Harry Potter for Kinect lets players experience some of the most memorable events in the series; everything from visiting Ollivanders, being placed into a house at Hogwarts and the final battle with He Who Must Not Be Named. Players will also be able to play against others in competitive mini-games or join friends and family in co-op play.
