You Harry Potter fans in the audience might want to listen up, because Sony Computer Entertainment London Studios’ newest title, Wonderbook: Book of Spells, should be right up your Diagon Alley. Teaching the encantations and history of the Potter universe, Book of Spells turns a PlayStation Move controller into a magic wand, and it just so happens to be available now.
The Wonderbook peripheral looks like a book and even opens like a book, but its main purpose is serving to enhance augmented reality games using the PlayStation Eye Camera and a Move controller. In case that description takes a bit of the magic out of the formula, look at it this way: It brings books to life. Book of Magic is the first “book” to be released for the device, giving players a chance to dive further into the world of Harry Potter while learning spells like Incendio, Wingardium Leviosa and Expecto Patronum.
Associate Producer Jenny Barbour announced Wonderbook: Book of Spells’ U.S. release on the PlayStation Blog, along with a brand new TV spot showing off what the game can do.
Book of Spells utilizes the Move controller to allow players to cast their own spells and learn more about their history in the wizarding world through new writings from series author J.K. Rowling.
For fans of the Harry Potter series, Wonderbook is pretty much a no-brainer. For everyone else, it certainly seems like a nifty new use for the PlayStation Move, especially for those looking to add a little extra magic to family time.
