LocoRoco going Cocoreccho

50°
362w ago - New quirky creature title--billed as an "interactive screensaver"--coming exclusively to the PlayStation Network.

More LocoRoco goodness is incoming from Sony--this time on to the PlayStation Network. The latest title in the LocoRoco series will be called LocoRoco Cocoreccho in the UK, instead of its Japanese name, Oiedeyo LocoRoco! Boo Boo Cocoreccho! The game will be available from September 20 on the PlayStation Network.

The original LocoRoco game, created by Japanese game designer Tsutomu Kouno and producer Kazuhito Miyaki, was first released in Europe in June 2006 on the PlayStation Portable. The player moved the creatures called LocoRoco through the game using the L and R buttons to tilt the screen, joining them together and splitting them apart again to access different areas. A mobile version of the game has also been spotted in Japan.

The game will cost £1.99 in the UK--international pricing has yet to be confirmed, but will likely be in the region of $4 for the US.
