Wonderbook Arrives In Australia

Sony Playstation 3 News Casual

Wonderbook, Sony Computer Entertainment’s new AR peripheral for the Playstation Move, has finally arrived in Australia. Alongside the release of the physical peripheral, the first title in the Wonderbook range, Book of Spells, is also available. Book of Spells brings exclusive new and original writing from J.K. Rowling, the author of the Harry Potter series, as players learn familiar spells from the world of Harry Potter, such as Incendio, Wingardium Leviosa and Expelliarmus.

J.K Rowling had this to say about working with Book of Spells:

“Wonderbook: Book of Spells is the closest a Muggle can come to a real spellbook. I’ve loved working with Sony’s creative team to bring my spells, and some of the history behind them, to life. This is an extraordinary device that offers a reading experience like no other.”

Book of Spells is not the only title that will be compatible with Wonderbook. The BBC hit Walking with Dinosaurs will also be coming to Wonderbook, as well as content from Disney. Moonbot Studios, who have won awards for their animated content, will bring Diggs Nightcrawler to Wonderbook, bringing the film noir genre with it.

Josh is the name, writing is my game... well my degree will say that. But, when uni gets me down (and it does), there is no better way that to grab a chair, sit back and slicing up some Darkspawn I started my gaming interest back in the good old 16 bit era with the Sega Mega Drive and Sonic The Hedgehog 2. I was roughly five years old. To this day I still try to fire up the dusty companion and speed through the wacky and bright levels, jumping on some Badniks, collecting those damn Chaos Emeralds. Then I moved onto Sony's disk based console the Playstation (thanks to my uncle). Since then I have picked up each of Sony's consoles from the 5th to current generation that has been released in Australia (with more to come). In terms of writing about games, I am quite new to the field. I started out late last year with my own blog before deciding to move to greener pastures. I have written a few reviews for the Playstation 3 and Playstation Portable. Features as well. I hope I can flex my muscles while writing with Capsule Computers. If I'm not gaming, however, I'm writing narratives. I am currently trying to kickstart a high fantasy novel (which, hopefully, turns into a complex RPG) that I want done in five years or so. My passion of writing has been there for a long time and has flourished as I grew. I'm into the fantasy genre, both games and novels, and thoroughly enjoy a deep and complex RPG, whether it comes from the East or West. Oh and anime is awesome!
