of Namco Bandai Games shared a new gameplay video of Noby Noby Boy, which is to be released tomorrow on PSN. To quote:
Come to think of it, Noby Noby Boy will be released on Feb 19th, tomorrow! Well, my apologies for the delay to those who have waited the game. Matching the release date with other territories was tougher than we thought, but the good thing is that I could have some interesting experiences in the game.
With Noby Noby Boy, you can send a message to other players while playing without going to the XMB, and the received messages are displayed on the body of Boy.
Checking the game spec, I sent a message requesting approval to add a friend and my request was accepted instantly, and I received a message. Below is an image of the message shown on Boy's body.
Surprise! It says, "welcome to paradise." It's such a worn-out cliché, but I like it! Exchanging messages with people via online games has become nothing special, while I don't play games much, let alone online, receiving this message really delighted me. It was even somewhat impressive because I didn't expect it and of course it proved that the messaging function was working.
Oh, I almost forgot about the game. Yes, the concept is to stretch Boy. But with that said, there are many other ways to enjoy this game and they are totally up to you. Again, that is where the difficulty of describing the game lies.
This game may let you run into something totally beyond your imagination or may not at all. You may totally hate the unexpected or you may love it as I did. I hope the players can find those unexpected elements fun. Now, let me show you a video that will help you understand the game a little better, lest you are getting more confused with the ambiguity.
This is Takahashi. Talk to you later.
