Pottermore, the interactive online companion to the Harry Potter books, will be available in PlayStation Home in April, Pottermore and publisher Sony Computer Entertainment announced today.

PlayStation Home users will get the chance to explore the town of Diagon Alley and the Hogwarts Express, and partake in four minigames based on Moments, or interactive scenes, from Pottermore: Book Herding, answering a quiz, collecting Pottermore Trading Cards and fighting in a Wizard's Duel. Pottermore users who have made it past the seventh chapter of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone will be able to access additional content by linking their account with their PlayStation Network ID.

Pottermore, which was created by Sony and Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling, serves as a web-based expanded universe for the Harry Potter franchise. It includes exclusive content such as extended backstory for the series, and was launched in April 2012.
