Noby Noby Boy to See Release February 17

Noby Noby Boy to See Release February 17

image

The next bizarre thing from the creator of Katamari Damacy is slithering, eating and excreting its way onto PlayStation Network next month.

If you ask Keita Takahashi, the mastermind behind Namco-Bandai's Katamari Damacy, to explain exactly just what you do in his latest title, Noby Noby Boy, he'll essentially tell you that he has no idea, According to the ESRB (as obtained by Kotaku), however, Noby Noby Boy is "a puzzle game in which players control a large snake-like creature whose objective is to grow by gobbling up objects (e.g., mailboxes, small animals, houses, etc," where accomplishment is determined by "growing the creature as big as possible and then reporting its length to a character in space."

Outstanding. Noby Noby Boy is a PlayStation Network exclusive and will be made available on February 19 for $5. So should you decide that you don't enjoy a game where you play as a technicolor worm whose sole purpose is eating and pooping objects, at least you won't be out much.

There is more to Noby Noby Boy, however, as Namco-Bandai explains that there's a meta-game element to the title. As players stretch their glow worm to unimaginable proportions, they in turn unlock "new game stages" for all other players online. As you complete various goals within the game, the new King of All Cosmos character, currently known only as "Girl," will grow along with you and the combined length of all PlayStation Network Noby Noby players.

Sound interesting? Fantastic. Now just make sure to check it out or else the rest of us suckers will totally be boned out of new content.

dammit PSN stop hogging the kewl games

wow something that actually makes me want a PS3. I really wish Keita Takahashi would make some more games for the 360, but that's probably only slightly more likely than Masahiro Sakurai (kirby's maker) making a game for the 360.

That is awesome! I have to wonder, how long will "Girl" be able to get?

If I have any idea what the hell Noby Noby Boy will be, I'm getting it.

Hey, the 360 still has stuff to look foward to. Like Crank Dat Soulja Boi....

HAHAHAHAHAHAHA

so instead of rolling a ball I'm growing a snake?

Widgit series.

That screenshot sent shivers down my spine, I don't know why.

Isn't it the same as playing the "Snake" game off the old gen cellphones?

Yes, in the same way playing the original Pitfall is the same as Uncharted: Drakes Fortune

I believe a more fair comparison is "Katamari Damacy with a snake."

Pretty much. But then whats wrong with that?

Didn't say there was anything wrong with it.

Not sure why you are being so aggressive with your comments, but what I meant was, the core gameplay seem to have been influenced by "Snake", which mind you, I enjoyed a lot. And I haven't played that game in over a 2-3 years, and have yet to see any other indie dev or big name dev, try to bring the game in a different flavor, like this game is certainly doing, which is a good thing.

Dang, I read the title and instantly thought it was a news article about Nobby Nobbs.

Don't fret, dear. The PS3 rapper boys will bitch and that'll be ported to you and you'll enjoy the fun too!

I am actually a little jealous though :(

If we need a rap game, they'll bust out PaRappa the Rapper 3.

The trophies are up. They appear to be completely insane. What else is new?
