100°
76w ago - Sony Worldwide Studios Art Director Gavin Moore introduced the Boss Battles of Puppeteer on PS3 (Part 1) today, with details below as follows:

The stage is set, and the show's about to begin for Puppeteer! I'm excited to share some of my craziness with you today.

But, before Puppeteer is released across the globe, I wanted to provide a glimpse of whom our friend, Kutaro, is really up against as he battles the Moon Bear King's (MBK) Generals. So, take a look below and get acquainted with six of the 13 bosses from Puppeteer.

Can't picture yourself going up against the Generals? No need to worry! We created these lovely snippets showcasing the magic you will soon experience. Make sure to check back soon to see the final six Generals!

General Tiger

Appearance: A gigantic tiger with a Moonstone shard for his left canine. His tail ends with a spiked iron ball, like a mace.

Personality: A true paper tiger, kowtowing to the tough, and browbeating the weak. Reflecting his personality, General Tiger has a slightly lewd turn of phrase. Earlier in his life, he was a complete coward.

Relationships: Tiger is overawed and obsequious to the Moon Bear King to an unnecessary degree. He treats the Witch, Ying Yang, the puppets, and the grubs with...

To quote: Hey everyone! My name is Kevin Oxland and I'm creative director at Spiral House. I'm very excited to be here today to finally announce our new game with Sony for the PlayStation Vita. Please welcome PlayStation Vita Pets!

PlayStation Vita Pets is no ordinary pet game! We've done our best to really make this feel like a PlayStation game - with 'game' being the important word there. We set out to make something that was more than just a pet sim - we wanted to make something that felt like a real game, with characters, fun and adventure, so that's exactly what we did.

We also wanted to focus on the dogs themselves, which may seem an obvious thing to say, but making them move, act and speak (!) in a very convincing way for the scope of the game we had in mind, was not easy.





Making humans walk and move realistically in videos games is one thing, but creating truly convincing dogs for today's demanding younger gamers, really is something else. This, we felt, could only be achieved using the power and features of the...
