One of the most anticipated games yet from Sony Computer Entertainment Europe – Wonderbook: Book of Spells for the PlayStation3 arrives in South Africa tomorrow (16 November).
Children will be able to step into the magic of the wizarding world through Wonderbook: Book of Spells produced in collaboration with Pottermore, J.K. Rowling’s unique and free-to-use website that builds an exciting online experience around the reading of the Harry Potter books.
Wonderbook: Book of Spells is the first title to be published for the jaw-dropping new PlayStation 3 peripheral, Wonderbook, and will give you the chance to discover, learn and practise spells you already know and love from the Harry Potter books. Featuring new and exclusive writing from J.K. Rowling, Book of Spells creates a uniquely immersive spell-casting experience, in which fans will be able to learn and practise spells such as Incendio, Wingardium Leviosa and Expelliarmus.
In the words of J.K. Rowling, author of the Harry Potter books, ‚”Wonderbook: Book of Spells is the closest a Muggle can come to a real spell book. I’ve loved working with Sony’s creative team to bring my spells, and some of the history behind them, to life. This is an extraordinary device that offers a reading experience like no other.‚”
In the world of Harry Potter, Book of Spells was written over two hundred years ago by Miranda Goshawk, the author of The Standard Book of Spells series. Unlike those volumes, Book of Spells can only be found in the ‚’Restricted Section’ of the Hogwarts library. It is an advanced textbook for students, which will assist them on their journey to becoming an accomplished witch or wizard. Now you can finally get your hands on this elusive text and learn the spells you have always wanted to cast!
Mario Dos Santos, Ster Kinekor Entertainment CEO said, ‚”With the introduction of Wonderbook, it proves that that Sony continue to push the boundaries of interactive entertainment, using augmented reality to deliver a remarkably unique experience that the entire family can enjoy together.‚”
Wonderbook: Book of Spells is the first title for this year’s must-have gift, Wonderbook, the latest addition to the PlayStation experience. Wonderbook is a powerful storytelling vehicle and tool for the imagination which brings to life a thousand stories in one physical book with a brand new series of adventures and experiences to explore. Putting you at the heart of the action, Wonderbook brings exclusive content to PlayStation 3 owners in immersive new ways using augmented reality technology via PlayStation Eye to transform the world around you. Bringing mystery and discovery to your living room, will draw you into new worlds, and give you the chance to live in the stories you love. With plenty more projects in the works including Walking with Dinosaurs from the BBC, an exciting partnership with Disney and a quirky new detective title, Diggs Nightcrawler, Wonderbook looks set for a great future.
