Calling all Harry Potter fans: Wonderbook: Book of Spells is out TODAY

Listen up Muggles, today is the day that you can become an actual Hogwarts wizard or witch. AAAGGGHHHH.

PlayStation 3 has launched Wonderbook: The Book of Spells which turns the world around you into something that looks a bit like this:

If that’s not the coolest thing you can do with your living room then we don’t know what is.

The game which is being released in Partnership with Pottermore, JK Rowling’s website, lets Harry Potter fans get their hands on exclusive new and original writing from JK and cast spells with the PlayStation Move Motion Controller which becomes a magic wand (seriously, we can’t even begin to tell you how much fun the wand it). You get to go on a fantastic journey to read and learn the secrets of wizardry and the art of spell-casting – JUST LIKE A STUDENT AT HOGWARTS. AGH.

Ol’ JK is just as excited as us about fans finally being able to practice her spells. “Wonderbook: Book of Spells is the closest a Muggle can come to a real spellbook,” she said.

“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.”

As all Potter heads will know, Book of Spells was written over two hundred years ago by Miranda Goshawk the author of The Standard Book of Spells series. Unlike those volumes, Book of Spells can only be found in the ‘Restricted Section’ of the Hogwarts library. It is an advanced textbook for students, which will assist them on their journey to becoming an accomplished witch or wizard.

We’ve probably never been more excited about anything, ever. Also we went to the launch and got to stand next to an owl. Something that we originally were excited, but the joy soon became fear. We don’t know why.

Check out the trailer here:

You can get Wonderbook: Book of Spells from places like Tesco and Amazon, so check it out and treat yourself... or get someone to buy it for you, we always prefer that version.
