Take center stage on September 10.


Puppeteer will launch for PlayStation 3 on September 10, Sony confirmed at the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco.

The game will be available both at retail and PlayStation Network on day one.

The SCE Japan Studio-developed platformer follows Kutaro, a boy whose head is eaten by the Moon Bear King and whose body is turned wooden puppet, and is set entirely on a theater stage. To get his head back, he will use replacement heads, make allies, and use a pair of magical scissors.

Thanks, Joystiq.

      Japan Studio, the studio that is under everyone’s radar but is on top of their games and in leagues with ND, SSM and other AAA developers :D

    This doesn’t sound like my cup of tea… Reminds me of Little big planet, I hated that game… :-)

      It’s nothing like LBP. Not in the least.

      Not sure why one wouldn’t like LBP (floaty jump aside but that’s its style), the second and especially the Vita version have some amazing things in them. Fortunately for you this is more akin to a current gen version of Dynamite Heady, platforming looks extremely tight.

    That saying ask and you shall receive is truer than I thought lol. Now I know what I’m getting in September!

  • Elvick

    • Elvick

      I think competition wise that’d be better, but I’m glad it’s closer to Halloween. It’s got that kind of vibe for me. So it’ll be fun to play it around there.

  • I suddenly been reminded by Media Molecule’s crazy showing from PS Conference 2013 when I see Puppeteer… I don’t know why… xD

    Why is this launching so close to Killzone: Mercenary. What was wrong with an August release for Puppeteer?
