Could you imagine owning a PS2 and never having played Shadow of the Colossus? Or a GTA: Vice City? Ha ha. That'd be dumb. Well, if you have a PS3—if you're moving into the PS4 era—without having played Puppeteer, you've made a big mistake that you need to fix posthaste.
Kotaku video-capture artist Steve Marinconz and I are worried. We're worried that people don't know about Puppeteer. Have you heard of it? It's beautiful, fun, made by Sony's Japan Studio, full of fresh ideas and it's out today(!). How about if we showed you some of it?
The Last Guardian IS in production. Though the game was absent from this year's E3, that's what we've been repeatedly assured of by Sony reps. Well, front man Fumito Ueda, creator of PS2 classics ICO and Shadow of the Colossus, stepped out from behind the curtain to reiterate that fact, but with a little caveat.
This is Puppeteer, out for the PS3 on September 10 (September 11 in Europe). It's really neat. Watch me play it alongside creative director Gavin Moore.
From what I've seen of it, The Puppeteer is a delightful upcoming PlayStation 3 game starring a boy in a cartoon play. Its creative director, Gavin Moore, doesn't believe players should have the option of playing as a girl in his game.
Interesting, no? Reminds me of Nightmare Before Christmas. For more on this PS3 game, head over to the PlayStation Blog.
We first saw Puppeteer last month at GamesCom. We're seeing it again this month at TGS.
Upcoming PlayStation 3 game Puppeteer, announced by Sony today at Gamescom, might be one of the strangest titles we've seen this year. It's a platformer in which you play a boy-turned-puppet who has to hop his way out of a magical theater that moves as you move. Looks neat!
