Today Keita Takahashi of Namco Bandai Games has announced news of a Noby Noby Boy update hitting PS3 via PlayStation Network:

Last month, Girl reached the moon. I was filled with emotion when that happened because I was wondering if a lot of people were playing the game. And I am truly grateful for all those who have. Thank you all very much.

Some of our own staff was also touched more than they had expected. With that said, the next goal, Mars, is still far away. It would take all the current players a while to reach Mars, so more people have to join in on the fun.

There have been many reviews/criticisms since Noby Noby Boy released. I totally understand as this is such a unique game and I expected those reactions. I don't mean to make any excuses. That being said, I do get depressed from time to time as I want users to enjoy the game as much as possible. But at the same time, this is what I wanted to create.

In the hopes that more people can enjoy the game, we are currently working on an update.

A featured addition to the update is going to be offline multiplayer. Some may say, "Offline!?" But it'll still be fun. Please check it out.

Well, it's going to be quite a long journey to Mars. Please be patient. This is Takahashi.
