Today, J.K. Rowling’s official site was updated with the addition of a new event, “Wonderbook: Book of Spells”, to the timeline. The description only included information previously released by Sony.
From the description on J.K. Rowling’s site:
In June 2012 an exciting new project, in collaboration with Playstation 3, was announced.
Wonderbook: Book of Spells is an enchanted book that brings spells to life around you, and includes new writing from J.K. Rowling, such as spell descriptions and stories from the wizarding world.
In the world of Harry Potter, the Book of Spells is 200 years old and is written by Miranda Goshawk. This powerful spell book is kept in the Restricted Section of the Hogwarts library. As a student at Hogwarts, chapter by chapter you will be able to read about and practise a variety of spells, picking up valuable experiences and lessons along the way.
Wonderbook is a new peripheral for PlayStation®3. Using the latest augmented reality technology, Wonderbook puts a physical book in your hands and will support a magical new range of games and reading experiences for the whole family to enjoy.
There is still no word from Pottermore, a partner in the project. The product will be hitting store shelves during Holiday Season 2012. Read our previous post about the Wonderbook: Book of Spells here.
