Warner Bros. has announced Harry Potter for Kinect, a game designed exclusively for Microsoft’s motion control hardware.

The game is being developed by Eurocom and will allow players to relive some of the most memorable moments from all eight films. Players can choose to either play as the familiar characters or their own avatars. Competitive mini-games and a co-op mode are also included.

“With Kinect’s scanning technology, for the first time ever in a Harry Potter game, players will be able to scan in their own face to create a unique witch or wizard to journey through the adventures of the film,” explains Warner Bros. “In addition, Kinect’s hands-free and voice recognition capabilities allow gamers to cast spells using physical maneuvers and by calling out spell names, offering an extraordinary, immersive Harry Potter experience.”

Even though no more films are left for video game tie-ins, Warner Bros. has still found a way to squeeze some more money out of the franchise. We’re putting bets on a new Quidditch World Cup game for release next year.

A possible game of the year contender?
