New Harry Potter supports Kinect

According to $199 Kinect bundle listing.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 appears to support Xbox 360 Kinect if a US retail listing is to be believed.

A new Wal-Mart bundle offer for Kinect offers the sensor bar, two out of a choice of six games and a $30 eGift card for $199 - in line with expectations that the sensor itself will cost $149.

However, it's the listing of six games that raises the most interesting questions, because along with Dance Central, Joy Ride, Kinectimals, Kinect Sports and Kinect Adventures, US punters are given the option of picking the new Potter game.

"Choice of one Kinect Game" is the name of the boxout featuring the listing, which is labelled "Harry Potter: Deadly [sic] Hallows (Xbox 360/Kinect)".

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 is a third-person shooter inspired take on the film adaptation of the first half of JK Rowling's last book about the young wizard and his battles with Voldemort.

However, EA has never mentioned anything about Kinect support. We've spoken to EA this morning and were told someone would get back to us with clarification.

In the meantime, check out our Xbox 360 Kinect hands-on for details on games that are confirmed for the hands-free controller, or our Deathly Hallows hands-on for more on confirmed details about the game.

Hallows be thy game.
