In Puppeteer, you play as a boy who’s lost his head. On your journey to get your head back from the Moon Bear King, you’ll encounter various other heads to act as your replacement—some could “have the power to change and shape the world around you,” while others could unlock bonus stages, according to art director Gavin Moore.
Sony today lifted the lid on two of four “very special” ‘Moon Hero’ heads Kutaro will come across.
“Each Hero Head possesses a power that once belonged to one of the four legendary ‘Moon Heroes’ who fought valiantly to protect the Moon Goddess from being overthrown by the evil Moon Bear King,” said Moore. “Alas, their powers were no match for Moon Bear King’s twelve generals who ultimately defeated the heroes… but what if someone were brave enough to attain all four of those powers and use them together?”
The first two Moon Heroes are:
- Moon Knight: Wear his head for his Shield Power.
- Moon Ninja: Wear his head for his Bomb Power.
These heads add “some truly transformative mechanics” to the game, added Moore.
Also released today is a new story trailer. Sony also confirmed the game’s previously announced September 10 release date and announced a $39.99 price point. Watch the trailer below. View screenshots of the Moon Knight and Moon Ninja heads, and final box art, at the gallery.
