As unboxing videos and size comparisons for the PlayStation 5 become available, new gameplay has emerged for Astro’s Playroom. Developed Team Asobi and SIE Japan Studio, the platformer comes bundled with the console and serves as a showcase for the DualSense. Check out the latest gameplay below courtesy of IGN, which showcases the Cooling Springs level in 4K.

Many of the DualSense’s mechanics, from the blowing into the microphone to move a pinwheel to tilting it for a spring-loaded suit, are showcased. But the overall flow of the level and its detail are also worth noting. Keep an eye out for references to classic PlayStation franchises courtesy of all the other Astrobots running around.

Astro’s Playroom launches on November 12th for the PS5 in North America and Japan with the rest of the world getting it (and the console) on November 19th. Though it’s bundled free, this won’t be a short tech demo. Game director Nicolas Doucet confirmed to Famitsu several weeks ago that it would be about 4 to 5 hours long. Stay tuned for more details in the meantime.
