Harry Potter-inspired scenes will become part of PlayStation's virtual world this April, as part of the Pottermore partnership formed between JK Rowling and Sony PlayStation.
The Hogwarts Express and Diagon Alley will become locations that virtual visitors can explore, creating a new online space for PlayStation 3-owning Harry Potter fans to meet in.
Four mini-games have also been announced: a Book Herding trial, Pottermore quiz, trading card game, and Wizard's Duel.
Various costumes will be available for dress-up play with a dozen companion pets to be made available for purchase.
Pottermore accounts can be linked with their PlayStation Network IDs, unlocking extra content on PlayStation Home's equivalent for those that have reached chapter seven of the interactive Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone on Pottermore.com.
