J.K. Rowling and Sony announce ‘Book of Spells’ for PS3


The “Harry Potter” series is over, in both book and movie format, but the phenomenon is long from over.

At the E3 convention today, Sony Corp. announced a new project, in association with J.K. Rowling; a video game that will turn the Playstation Move controller into a magic wand.

Titled “Wonderbook: Book of Spells,” the game will give gamers the chance to perform spells by moving the wand in certain patterns. This may sound gimmicky to some, but the “Harry Potter” fans are uber pumped to get something else added along to their books, movies, rides, food, etc.

J.K. Rowling announces her new book in conjunction with Sony: Book of Spells. The Queen's bringing her work to life once again.

You know when Professor Snape and The Dark Lord Voldemort use their valuable twitter time to talk about something, they’re quite excited about it themselves:

JK Rowling has written 'Book of Spells' for Sony's Wonderbook. The Queen has returned…

According to JK Rowling herself, "Book of Spells on Wonderbook is the closest a Muggle can get to a spellbook." #RowlingReturns #EwMuggles

JK Rowling's new "Book of Spells" ebook will "come alive as you read." As if her words weren't magical already.

Give us a few months Voldy, and we’ll be formidable opponents for your eternal darkness.
