Samantha Ryan, executive from Warner Bros. stated “Harry Potter for Kinect will engage Harry Potter fans old and new by bringing them into the wizarding world as truly active participants.” Families are going to be able to fly there broomsticks in a Quidditch match and reenact all their favorite memories from the books and movies. You are going to be able to battle those pesky pixies in the Harry Potter World. In addition to that, gamers are going to be able to battle other wizards in Harry Potter Kinect, but it’ll be up to you if those wizards were friends or family. Harry Potter Kinect is also going to offer various competitive mini-games. There is no telling how many mini-games that it is going to offer at this point as no specific details were released at this time. What we image is that they are going to add a game or two that is going to please those who were also big fans of Star Wars Kinect’s dance mode. If that’s the case, get those dancing shoes on and get ready to prance around this time as a wizard.
With the finale already having come and gone for Harry Potter in both books and movies, everyone thought the games would be done, however, Warner Bros and Eurocom have seemed to keep the story going and still get some buzz going in the video game industry. With the innovation behind Kinect for the series, this game will ideally give new and old fans of this amazing story a new experience. Will Harry Potter for the Kinect fall short of Star Wars? Or will the magical power of the wizards be able to push past and be a bigger success? No one is going to know till until the projected release date sometime this autumn when Harry Potter for the Kinect flies in on its broomsticks for the Xbox 360.
This story was first reported by EuroGamer.net.
