Sony has confirmed that LocoRoco
is coming to the PS3, complete with motion-sensitive controls.
The news comes from Sony's PlayStation Premier event being held in Tokyo. The game is tentatively dubbed Buu Buu Cocoreccho! by LocoRoco
and will be available through the PlayStation Network.
Sony says of the game, "It's LocoRoco
, but it's not -- a peculiar extra chapter." It further (confusingly) added, "Even if you don't play it [as in control the game], the world and the LocoRoco will play [as in both playing amongst themselves and as in playing back like a video] on their own." Think of it as a goldfish bowl of adorable little LocoRoco in your living room, with 200 of the little guys to frolic with each other.
Beyond that and the fact that the game will make use of the SixAxis's motion-sensitive controls, not a huge amount is known. Sony didn't say when the game will be out, but it's said to be 95% complete.
