The adorable Darsheel Safary recently launched Wonderbook: Book of Spells, the new Sony PlayStation game that came about as a result of Sony’s partnership with Pottermore, the website based on J.K. Rowling‘s Harry Potter series. I know this is supposed to be for a younger audience and all, but I am dying to get my hands on it. I mean, in the series, The Standard Book of Spells is the fictional textbook by Miranda Goshawk that Harry, Ron and Hermione study whilst at Hogwarts.*sigh*
Also, it’s just the Potter nerd in me speaking here, but I couldn’t help picking this up: The description of the game on Playstation’s website refers to Book of Spells as being found in the Restricted Section of the library – except they claim it teaches spells like Incendio, Wingardium Leviosa and Expelliarmus, which are fairly basic spells, so you know… I mean I understand creative licenses and all but like I said, it’s only the Potter nerd in me nitpicking here. 😛
