Harry Potter For Kinect Revealed

The Boy Who Lived lives once more on Xbox 360!
Microsoft Game Studios have this week announced the development of Harry Potter For Kinect, a brand new motion title developed exclusively for the Xbox 360's camera peripheral. The game will allow players to either take on the guise of the Boy Wizard himself or use Kinect's FaceScan tech to 'place themselves in the game' (see the trailer to get your own impressions on the results!), playing through some of the most memorable and exciting setpieces of the eight hit movies. Whether it will all just turn out to be a handful of lacklustre mini-games as Kinect Star Wars did last month remains to be seen, yet it's hard to stay optimistic when you recall how poorly the motion tech was implemented in the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 tie-in! Harry Potter For Kinect will ship for 360 this Autumn.
