Sony Announces Echochrome ii Hits PSN on December 21, 2010

50°
202w ago - Today SCEA Producer Kumi Yuasa has announced that Echochrome ii will be hitting PSN on December 21, 2010 and shared a fresh video below.

To quote: Wow, it's been some time since our last game update so I am very excited to announce that echochrome ii will be available for your holiday gaming pleasure on December 21st!

And if you're already enjoying PlayStation Move and our vast library of Move titles, then echochrome ii will be a great addition to your collection.

If you didn't see my last post and are curious as to what echochrome ii is all about, it's a unique puzzle game using the PlayStation Move motion controller to shine a light on a series of blocks and objects to create realistic shadows on the wall.





The blocks and objects you see in each level will cast different shadows depending on your movement so as you alter the perspective and angles by adjusting this light source, you will manipulate the shadows they cast to ultimately reveal a solution to the puzzle and guide your character to the exit. You can check out some actual gameplay in the video above.

Once you check out the game for yourself I think you'll enjoy how it uses PlayStation Move in this rather unique and original way. The best way...
