16w ago - Today at Gamescom 2013 Metanet Co-Founder Mare Sheppard made available a video introducing fans to Ninja Platformer N++ for the upcoming PS4 / PlayStation 4 video gaming console.
To quote: Hello! We're Mare and Raigan from Metanet Software, and we're really excited to finally be able to announce that N++ will be coming to PS4!
One of the requests we get most frequently is a version of N for PlayStation, so we're delighted to reveal that yes, it's happening! And it's gonna be great.
If you haven't heard of us, we're the creators of N, N+ and now the upcoming N++. If you want to read more about those games, check out this post about their backstory.
Next year will mark the 10-year anniversary of N, which should tell you that we've been working on this series for a very long time. We've learned a lot about N over the years, and now it's time for us to take all the loose ends, crazy experiments, and things we never got a chance to do, and combine them all into one final version. Our goal is for this to be the definitive version, the one which we ourselves would want to play over all other versions: N++.
We can't wait to say more! In the meantime, the teaser trailer above should...
21w ago - Sony Blog Manager Fred Dutton shared a video interview today which delves deeper into Japan Studio's incredible platformer called Puppeteer below!
To quote: Shameless favoritism alert: PlayStation Blog ruddy loves Puppeteer. It's one of the liveliest, loveliest and most downright out-there platformers to come along in years, and plays beautifully to boot.
It arrives in stores on 11th September, and if it's not on your radar yet, it's time to stick a pin in it. This is a game unlike any other you'll see on shelves this year.
With just a few weeks left of development, we caught up with the game's director, the ever-insightful Gavin Moore, last week to delve a little deeper into his deviously dark creation.
When we spoke last year you explained that you were making Puppeteer so that you had something to play with your young son. What's his verdict now that he's been able to play it?
Gavin Moore: He loves it! He likes playing it either on his own or with his Dad, which is nice.
If I'm playing Kutaro and he's playing the secondary character - Picarina or YinYang - he tries to kill me all the time because he wants to be Kutaro. He thinks Kutaro is him,...

41w ago - Game Director Mark Cerny has shared a video today unveiling Knack - a brand new platformer for PlayStation 4 / PS4.
To quote: It was a great pleasure to be able to introduce the title at the PlayStation Meeting in New York. With our new project, Knack, we are really trying to take advantage of everything that the PlayStation 4 supports, from the graphics capabilities of the platform to the physics simulation necessary to handle our very unique hero.
Over the years I've been involved in a number of character-based action titles - Crash Bandicoot, Jak and Daxter, Ratchet & Clank - and with the gameplay of Knack, we're trying to focus on the essential fun behind the action/platform gameplay. I'm hoping that we can make something that excites those that played the classic games back in the day, as well as something that attracts new fans to the genre.
I'm sure you saw a lot of things in the trailer and might be wondering what exactly the game is all about.
The Doctor (a not-so-mad scientist) studied ancient relics from a long lost civilization for many years, and finally found a way to bind them together and give them consciousness. The result is Knack, a creature with mysterious powers - for one, he can incorporate more relics into his body as he finds them, which allows him...
45w ago - GungHo Online Entertainment Community Coordinator Antonio Cara has shared a video trailer today announcing that ghoulish platformer Dokuro charms on PS Vita this week.
Below are the details, to quote: After enjoying accolades like "Original Game of the Year" and "Best Vita Puzzle Game" in the US, Dokuro finally brings his chalky goodness across the Atlantic Ocean this week. Players in the EU and Australia can finally enjoy Dokuro's 147 levels of puzzles, platforms, spikes and saw blades.
My past blog entries in the States discussed the story and gameplay at great length, so for our European friends I'd like to talk a bit more about development of this winsome title.
For those unfamiliar with the game, its story revolves around Dokuro, a skeletal member of the Dark Lord's army, who makes the career change from peon to hero after witnessing the tears of a captive Princess.
Filled with newfound determination, Dokuro begins his daring rescue. Unfortunately, the Princess doesn't even seem to notice he's there until he quaffs a magical potion that gives him a heroic new appearance and the capacity for fancy sword play.
By swapping forms, players make use of Dokuro's skeleton and hero forms to solve puzzles and battle foes while safely guiding the...
