They may have got lost amid the excitement surrounding the PlayStation 4, but Sony turned the pages on two new Wonderbook titles last week. Building on the success of Wonderbook: Book of Spells, both Wonderbook: Walking with Dinosaurs and Wonderbook: Book of Potions hope to convince you to dust off your hardback-based peripheral and worm your way through two new augmented reality stories. In order to get a good look at the fresh releases, we’ve teamed up with Family Gamer TV’s Andy Robertson, who put on his reading glasses in order to bring you these gameplay videos.

I never ended up getting it, but still love it as a concept. Sony could do worse than team up with marvel or dc for some interactive comics!

I had/have no idea what wonder book is, I assumed it was for young children and it would seem so. I think there is a puzzling lack of games for young children, it would make sense for more education based interactive games and especially now the eye is available for PS4. Much more fun and rewarding having to jump about than poke your finger at an iPad when you're six and a half.

I hope to see some collection pack for this peripheral, like Wonderbook with all the different games made for it in one disc. Wonderbook Collection!
Only then would I consider getting this.

Have both Book of Spells and Digs Night Crawler for my Daughters. They loved them both! These may well make it onto the Christmas list.

Hmm. May have to platinum Book of Spells myself!

I saw ads for these recently, on the EU PSN probably, and was surprised they were still around. Then I thought it odd that they were on the PSN as you need the book and we don't have 1.

Amazon has Diggs Nightcrawler listed w/ the non-committal 12/31/13 but they don't even mention the book.

And they don't have Book of Potions or Walking w/ Dinosaurs so I'm thinking these might be a no-go in the US. Of course Amazon doens't sell Wii U either, but it at least comes up in a search.

kid - "Book of Spells. Book of Spells. Book of Spells."
Andy - "No no, Book of Potions, Book of Spells was last year"

Hey Andy, stop torturing the kids w/ Wonderbook and let them get back to playing Super Mario 3D World.
