We have received more information what kind of new Harry Potter content we can expect with the upcoming video game Book of Spells. Russell Harding, the director of Book of Spells, spoke about what new writing from J. K. Rowling will be available in the game:

3 News: We have a lot of Harry Potter fans in New Zealand who are sad the books and movies have come to an end. Is Book of Spells the next step for them?
Harding: Well I think the Book of Spells explores the wizarding world further. It’s full of unique spell descriptions written by JK Rowling herself, so giving some of the background behind some of the famous spells, she’s created some really fun stories around how those spells were discovered.
We also have five nice poems that have been written around the moral values that wizards really need to obtain. They’re great pieces of poetry that are written by JK Rowling and are totally unique. So the fans will absolutely love that. There’s a lot more depth to this world.

3 News: Were any additions made to the Harry Potter universe in Book of Spells endorsed as canon?
Harding: It’s been a total collaboration with JK Rowling, she’s added a lot more depth to the world by exploring the spells, giving more background, naming some of the wizards that previously we hadn’t heard of, telling us dates when certain spells were invented and so on. She’s added more richness to that world herself.
This is a book that belongs in the restricted section at the library of Hogwarts, and you’re given the opportunity to take it from the shelf and actually explore it. No Muggle has been given that opportunity before.

You can read more about what to expect from the game here. Book of Spells will be available exclusively on the PlayStation 3, and will be released at the end of this year.

This is quite restricted to other Potter fans who doesn’t have a console… Too bad… I really envy those who will buy this!
