Despite the fact that both the books and movies are over, Warner Bros Interactive has announced a new Harry Potter title for Xbox 360. Eurocom Interactive (the team behind the Goldeneye reboot on Wii and later Xbox 360 and PS3) are developing this Kinect focused experience and will span all eight of the Harry Potter movies. Remind you of another ongoing project they’re currently working on? 007 Legends perhaps?
“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 of Production and Development at Warner Interactive. “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.”
Fans of the series will be able to create a personal witch or wizard using face-scanning, cast spells using voice commands and hand gestures. Quidditch will also make an appearance too.
The game is set for an Autumn release so expect to see more of this title at E3. In the meantime check out the trailer and screens below.
