What started as a concept artist fooling around becomes reality later this month, when Fat Princess update 1.06 brings the never-ending struggle between pirates and ninjas to life.
Oh, and giants too.
Fat Princess was never supposed to have pirates and ninjas. That's what a rep told me when I gave the new characters a spin at the Sony booth during E3 2010. A concept artist at Titan Studios thought it would be funny to post pictures of Fat Princess-styled pirates and ninjas last August. The internet picked up the image, and said concept artist will never do that again.
