It looks like everyones favorite wizard is hitting the Xbox 360, and he's going to have Kinect at his beck and call. The game is expected this fall, and it'll tackle all eight Harry Potter movies in one release.
Warner Bros. Interactive announced that Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger will join Potter as they journey through Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry and beyond. With Kinect’s scanning technology, players will be able to scan in their own face to create a unique witch or wizard to journey along with Harry and crew.
“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 favorite Harry Potter adventures, from flying a broomstick in a Quidditch match, to battling pixies and dueling other wizards.”
We’ll be able to try the game out at E3 and let you know how it is. Let’s hope it casts a spell on us.
