Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has released a free downloadable demo of Harry Potter for Kinect on Xbox LIVE. The Kinect camera allows each player to scan in their own face to create a unique witch or wizard to study at Hogwarts and journey through the adventures of the film series. Harry Potter for Kinect is available October 9 exclusively for Xbox 360; rated “E 10+” (suitable for ages 10 and older).
The downloadable demo contains a sample of three mini-games: Quidditch Match Seeker, in which players must control a flying broomstick as they attempt to dodge opponents and catch the Golden Snitch during a Quidditch match; Journey to the Lestrange Vault, where players must navigate a cart through the dark and dangerous underground caverns of Gringotts bank to reach the vault that houses the Lestrange fortune; and Destroy the Bridge, in which the player must battle Death Eaters while trying to make their way safely across the exploding Hogwarts bridge.
