The Wonderbook itself is a book-shaped peripheral that can (and apparently should) be used with the PlayStation Eye camera and PlayStation Move devices. It will focus on educational and family friendly content. The game “Book of Spells” will turn the Wonderbook device into a pop-up theater that extend the on-screen gaming experience.
Wonderbook: Book of Spells is going to feature exclusive new and original writing from J.K. Rowling that is going to come to life when you are playing this title. The Move Motion Controller will become your wand as you try out spells from the movies that kids and adults alike have grown to love. You will go on a magical journey when you begin to play the game; you will learn the secrets of wizardry and the art of spell-casting. You will be living the life of a Hogwarts student just like Harry Potter, Ron Wesley and Hermione Granger.J.K. Rowling said, “Wonderbook: book of Spells is the closest a Muggle can come to a real spellbook. I’ve loved working with Sony’s creative team to bring spells, and some of the history behind them, to life. This is an extraordinary device that offers a reading experience like no other.” Wonderbook: Book of Spells is going to be the first title for Wonderbook; it is going to bring to life a thousand stories in one physical book. Move is going to be a strong storytelling tool for the imagination behind the new piece of tech. Wonderbook is going to bring exclusive content to the PlayStation 3 owners and will purportedly leveralge the Move technology.
According to the lore behind the game, Book of Spells is shown to be written over 200 years ago by Miranda Goshawk and only can be found in the Restricted Section of the Hogwarts library. Fans of the Harry Potter world will have a comfortable place to practice spells, discover mischievous notes left by previous Hogwarts students. You will be able to experience all these spells that every successful wizard will need to know soon. You are going to be able to take this amazing journey when it is released later this year, November 2012.
