Forget the woeful Kinect features in launch game Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part I — Warner Bros. is taking another stab at the boy wizard's adventures on Kinect.

The smartly titled Harry Potter for Kinect comes from Eurocom, a UK-based first-person specialist behind Dead Space: Extraction and GoldenEye 007. Apparently the game will scan your face to create a personalised witch or wizard, plus there'll be support for the usual Kinect hand gestures and voice commands.

The story follows the whole Harry Potter saga and lets you play Quidditch when you want to take a break from casting magic spells and suchlike.

Here's the trailer, courtesy of our friends at Kinectronic:

Thanks for the link, James - appreciated! :)

And I totally want to play Quidditch with Kinect. Even if the rest of the game sucks, that had better be good. :)

The rest of the game WON'T suck. Believe me. Eurocom, the developers of this game, made Dead Space: Extraction and the remake of Goldeneye 007 (Goldeneye 007 on Wii and DS, Goldeneye 007 Reloaded on Xbox 360 and PS3). It'd be hard for them to do wrong, even if this is their first time making a Kinect game
