Bringing the magic of PlayStation® to life, Sony Computer Entertainment New Zealand today conjures a world of magic and wizardry with the launch of Sorcery™ in stores nationally.
As the latest addition to the PlayStation®Move motion controller required software line-up on PlayStation®3, Sorcery delivers a magical action-adventure experience using an intuitive gesture-based spell-casting system allowing players to chain basic spells together into powerful combinations. Sorcery puts the power in the players' hands using the PlayStation Move motion controller as a wand to conjure and command powerful magic as they brave the dark world of the Faerie Kingdoms. On their journey, players will encounter a multitude of enemies, solve ingenious puzzles, learn powerful spells, and craft strange potions immersing them in a unique fantasy adventure like never before.
BBC science expert and children's TV host, Steve Mould, who created a series of videos that bring to life the science behind the magic in Sorcery said: "The Move controller is the perfect way to interact with the wand and gets you moving about. When I first played with it, I thought of loads of ways to connect the spells and alchemy in the game to real-world science. The hard part was narrowing it down to my four favourite experiments!"
Patrick Lagana, Marketing Manager, Sony Computer Entertainment Australia added, "Sorcery has remained an eagerly anticipated title for PlayStation Move on PS3 since it was first announced and we're thrilled to offer this unique title to gamers everywhere today. Built from the ground up with PlayStation Move in mind from the beginning, Sorcery takes full advantage of our motion controller's precision to provide a compelling gaming experience that is sure to capture the imaginations of players of all ages."
As a young sorcerer's apprentice, it is up to the player to master the arcane arts and fight back the foul creatures of the magical realm where the story of Sorcery takes place. The Sorcery feature set begins with the PlayStation Move motion controller, which players use as a magic wand to cast extraordinary spells, brew enchanted elixirs, solve clever puzzles, and defeat the forces of darkness. The gesture-based casting system allows users to chain together basic spells into powerful combinations - freeze and shatter enemies, electrocute them with lightning called down from the heavens, or incinerate them in a lethal firestorm. Players can also collect magic items, learn new spells, and concoct upgrade potions to turn their humble apprentice into an unstoppable magic force.
