Sony Japan Studio's Puppeteer Trailer Details Game's Story
posted on by Joanne Mertz
The action title follows a young boy named Kūtarō who was carried away and transformed into a puppet. After literally losing his head to the maleficent Moon Bear King, the hero discovers a very special pair of scissors to help him on his "harrowing" adventure to find his head and eventually, his way home.
Sony revealed that Puppeteer offers different heads for Kutaro in gameplay. As Kutaro, the player must collect and keep certain heads, which hold special powers to change the world and unlock bonus stages. There are four special heads of the legendary "Moon Heroes," who fought to protect the Moon Goddess, eventually overthrown by the game's villain, Moon Bear King. As Kutaro, collecting these legendary heads is necessary for defeating the Moon Bear King's twelve generals and saving the Moon Realm.
Sony confirmed at last week's Game Developers Conference in San Francisco that the game will go on sale on September 10 for US$39.99.
