Sony's Wonderbook: Book of Spells gets release date for PS3
Sony today announced that the Wonderbook, an interactive book that uses Augmented Reality technology and PlayStation move products to bring stories to life, will be available on November 13, 2012, along with its first title Book of Spells.
Revealed back at E3, the Wonderbook — developed by London Studio — is a physical book that acts as a platform for a range of different titles to be experienced. The first title set to release is Wonderbook: Book of Spells, a title also developed by London Studio in collaboration with acclaimed author J.K. Rowling.
Book of Spells is an enchanted textbook filled with dozens of spells straight out of the world of Harry Potter. Upon opening the book you will be immediately transported to Hogwartz where you will learn about and practice 20 spells, including Incendio, Wingardium Leviosa, and Expelliarmus.
Sony is offering two ways to begin your wizard training. The first is the Wonderbook: Book of Spells Move Bundle that comes with everything you need to get you started with your wizardry classes. It includes the Book of Spells game, the Wonderbook peripheral, PlayStation Eye camera, and a PlayStation Move motion controller — all for $79.99.
The second offer is for those who already own a PlayStation Eye camera and a PlayStation Move motion controller. The Wonderbook: Book of Spells retails as standalone for $39.99 and includes the Wonderbook and game.
