  Warner Brothers has announced that it will be making a new Kinect exclusive title ‘Harry Potter for Kinect’, planned to release this fall. You can check out a few screens and get the details below.
 
The announcement was made via press-release, the Xbox 360 exclusive was designed for the Kinect and features full HD graphics, motion-controls and voice-recognition. In a prepared statement sent to the press, Warner Brothers talks about the new title:

Based on all eight Harry Potter films, Harry Potter for Kinect allows players to join Harry Potter, Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger as they embark on an unforgettable journey through Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry and beyond. With Kinect’s scanning technology, for the first time ever in a Harry Potter game, players will be able to scan in their own face to create a unique witch or wizard to journey through the adventures of the film.
 
In addition, Kinect’s hands-free and voice recognition capabilities allow gamers to cast spells using physical manoeuvres and by calling out spell names, offering an extraordinary, immersive Harry Potter experience.

“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, Production and Development, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. “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.”   The game will include some known playable characters as well as give players the chance to play as their own Avatar. The title will feature “some of the films’ most memorable moments”, though no specific story events were mentioned. The press-release did state that “visiting Ollivanders, choosing a house at Hogwarts, and confronting He Who Must Not Be Named in a climactic final battle” will be included in the title. The game will also feature a form of co-op play.
