Remember a long while back, when Harry Potter was showcased for Kinect? No? Hardly surprising, since it looked like every other Kinect game. Well, it seems as if we're going to get the on-rails, arm-flapping, licensed cash-in of our dreams with Harry Potter for Kinect. They really aren't trying with these names.
Harpy Ponkus For Kenenkt is going to comprise all eight movies as we join Hilary Plinken, Helmutt Grumbler, Rob Wenzles and the rest of the wacky gang from Hungweiss School of the Magicians. How will they stop Lord Vondenmints? With the power of YOU being the controller, of course!
"In addition, Kinect’s hands-free and voice recognition capabilities allow gamers to cast spells using physical manoeuvres and by calling out spell names, offering an extraordinary, immersive Harry Potter experience," lies the press release.
Hungry Plonker for Kinsects is due out on some sort of date and it's probably going to be f*cking sh*t.
