Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has announced a new game entitled Harry Potter For Kinect. Developed by Eurocom, the title will be exclusive and available only to Xbox 360 gamers. Details are below.
HARRY POTTER FOR KINECT
COMING THIS AUTUMN, YOU ARE INVITED TO ATTEND HOGWARTS SCHOOL OF WITCHCRAFT AND WIZARDRY THROUGH THIS EXCLUSIVE GAME ON KINECT
Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and Eurocom will cast a spell among Harry Potter fans of all ages this autumn with the Harry Potter for Kinect videogame exclusively on Kinect™ for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft .
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.”
Harry Potter for Kinect gives players the opportunity to experience some of the films’ most memorable moments, both as the relevant characters or as their own avatars, including visiting Ollivanders, choosing a house at Hogwarts, and confronting He Who Must Not Be Named in a climactic final battle. Players who master their lessons can also take on their opponents in competitive mini-games, or join forces with family and friends in co-op gameplay.
@KORNdog: 1080p to 4K scales well because it's exactly 4X. You don't get that typical scaling blur. (34 minutes ago)
Only downside and regret i have is having a curved screen.. but that changes next friday when i pick up new "flat" Samsung UHD.. (49 minutes ago)
@bleachedsmiles: i can assure you bud.. as a 4k tv owner there is NO downside in hooking up your consoles.. defeatable upscaling in game mode allowing for native on most mid to high end with hdmi 2.0 (52 minutes ago)
To me he was making points on not just Battlefront, but particular peeves I have with how the industry has went these days. Plus $120 for a fucking game?! Jesus Christ. (1 Hour ago)
@KORNdog: Yeah, I don't usually watch him, but I didn't mind that one. He'd plenty to say on it, and every point he made was bang on. He wasn't his usual OTT schtick either. (1 Hour ago)
i agree with what he's saying though. the game isn't interesting enough to pay double the amount for more content. (1 Hour ago)
Game design taking a backseat in favour of capitalising on the licence and the quick sell. The industry as we know it today. Oh, and the selling of games in chunks! Fuck off! (1 Hour ago)
