Puppeteer Strings Us Along With New Screenshots And Box Art

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).

  • Awesome, I will actually have a PS3 by that point because I need it for The Last of Us. This may be the only other new game I get for it.
  • 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!

  • Cool!

  • 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.

    I would be very impressed if Sony follows that tag price in all latest PS3-exclusive games. (Maybe not all but it would be cool though)
  • 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.
