Sony’s Wonderbook, originally announced at E3, is currently scheduled for a U.S. launch on November 13, along with its first title, Book of Spells. A collaboration with Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling, the title will allow players to take control of a magic wand and cast various familiar spells such as Incendio, Wingardium Leviosa and Expelliarmus.
Today, the first in a series of developer diary videos has been released, showcasing the augmented reality technology that Sony’s London studio has come up with to track the movement of the book accessory that is a key component in playing the game.
Additional pricing information and bundle details have also been announced. One bundle, retailing for $79.99, will include the Wonderbook accessory, a copy of Book of Spells, a PlayStation Eye camera, and a PlayStation Move motion controller. For those who already own the Eye and the Move, another bundle that just includes the accessory and Book of Spells will only cost $39.99.
