Electronic Arts recently announced a new expansion pack for The Sims tentatively titled “Makin’ Magic” with all sorts of impressive features. Sounds a lot like “your world – my world, your parent’s world” – Harry’s world.

Some of my favorites include:

  • Every spell has a unique Backfire (Ron)
  • Cast Spells to take care of your Sims’s needs, keep up the house and cook meals (Molly)
  • Travel via the Magic Portal to the all-new Magic Town location (Hogsmeade/Diagon Alley)
  • where Sims perform magic and duel (Dueling Club/H vs V/DA at the DoM)
  • Trade, quest, and shop with Gypsy Vendors, the Vampiress (KnockTurn Alley)
  • New decorator set, including moving paintings, creaking stairs, and twisted trees. (Hogwarts?)

I may just buy Sims for this so I can go to Hogwarts, Hogsmeade or Diagon Alley with fellow fans and hang out.
