Twisted and demented in its own cutesy ways, Sony Computer Entertainment Japan’s Puppeteer represents an interesting take on the 2.5D/3D platforming genre as we follow the puppet Kutaro as he journeys to face the Moon Bear King. But why is he after the king? Simple – he wants his head back.
In a new story trailer released for the same, Puppeteer will have Kutaro going around collecting heads and taking on their abilities on the way to retrieving his own. This includes the heads of the for Moon Heroes who have a way of smiting Moon Bear King.
There’s also the rapidly changing and free-flowing “stage” as you go along in the game. Being played out against the backdrop of an audience is one thing, but Puppeteer takes it to almost surrealist levels. Check it out when it launches in North America on September 10th and in Europe on September 11th for $40/€40.
