The lights are on
Update: We've embedded the trailer from the PlayStation Blog story.
Realism certainly has its place in the gaming ecosystem, but when an aesthetic style like the one in Sony Japan Studio's Puppeteer
comes along, it's hard not to take notice. We’ve got two new
screenshots and the box art for the title, which will be released on
September 10, 2013.
The images feature two of the four hero heads at players’ disposal.
Yes, you read that correctly. Heads. The title stars a boy named Kutaro,
who finds himself kidnapped by the evil Moon Bear King (not to be
confused with ManBearPig), transformed into a puppet, and separated from
his cranium. Oh, and his head is eaten by the nefarious ruler.
In addition to his magical scissors, he’ll be able to call upon the
shield-bearing Moon Knight (no relation to the Marvel character) and
bomb-tossing Moon Ninja, each offering up special skills, terrain-altering abilities, and access to hidden bonus stages. If all of that
sounds like something you’re interested in, you’ll also be happy to
learn that the title comes with a budget price tag ($39.99).

When is the next GI issue due out? I know it's off-topic, but I've got a craving
I will be buying this game on DAY ONE!
Looks cute. :)
Not much of a sidecroller fan, but this game has my interest.
I really hope this sells well. The industry needs more creative titles such as this.
sure looks like manbearpig...
Looks really fun and I will be getting it on launch day now that I know it is only $40!
Sounding quite interesting.
seems similar to little big planet but this is a first I've heard of it
Cool, looks like I might pick this up. It's always great to see a new platformer, and at this price it's kind of hard to turn down.
This looks amazing! I will definitely have to get this!
$40 makes this a buy for me. Looks great.
Basically Little Big Planet all over again, but that's fine by me. Looks interesting.
Looks good. Definitely going to keep an eye on this.
