Book of Spells is the first project to use Sony's new Wonderbook platform, and taps into the Harry Potter universe created by J.K. Rowling. In the game, players will learn how to cast a range of spells, including Incendio, Wingardium Leviosa, and Expelliarmus, using the PlayStation Move controller as a wand.

In addition to Book of Spells, Sony has a number of projects in the pipeline for Wonderbook. These include Diggs: Nightcrawler--a detective noir game from Oscar-winning studio Moonbot--as well as BBC's Walking with Dinosaurs, and a mystery project with Disney Interactive Studios.
