Harry Potter fans are to be able to immerse themselves in the magic of the boy wizard's newest videogame thanks to the power of Kinect.

Microsoft has confirmed at the Gamescom trade show that the Xbox 360 edition of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 1 will provide exclusive full-body motion control compatibility.

It means that gamers will be able to use physical gestures to cast spells as they fend of hordes of marauding Death Eaters, controlling Harry, Ron and Hermione in both solo and two-player cooperative modes.

Actors James and Oliver Phelps, who play troublemaking twins Fred and George Weasley in the Potter movies, were on hand to show off the new functionality to Gamescom crowds this week.

Jonathan Bunney of developer EA Bright Light Studios said: "Our Kinect challenges allow players to literally cast magic from the palm of their hand, completely controller free, to enhance and deepen the overall play experience."

The game will also be coming to PlayStation 3, Wii, DS and PC this autumn.
