California – Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and Eurocom will cast a spell among Harry Potter fans of all ages this fall with the Harry Potter for Kinect videogame, exclusively on Kinect for the Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft.
Based on all eight Harry Potter films, Harry Potter for Kinect allows players to join Harry Potter, Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger on a journey through Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry and beyond.
In addition to having a unique character in the game, Kinect’s hands-free and voice recognition capabilities allow gamers to cast spells using physical maneuvers and by calling out spell names, offering an immersive Harry Potter experience.
The game will allow players to experience memorable moments, either as the relevant characters or as their own avatars, like visiting Ollivanders, choosing a house at Hogwarts and confronting He Who Must Not Be Named in a climactic battle. Players who master their lessons can also take on their opponents in competitive mini-games, or join forces with family and friends in co-op gameplay.
