Johann Sebastian Joust Is Finally Coming to the PS3

Posted by Sammy Barker


Bizarre PlayStation Move duelling game Johann Sebastian Joust will finally release on the PS3, if it can achieve its reasonable Kickstarter target. The game will launch as part of a compilation named SPORTSFRIENDS, which contains a compendium of indie hits. Developer Die Gute Fabrick is describing the package as the modern day Summer Games. Appropriately, it’s due out next Summer.

The compilation – which is being funded through a combination of Sony’s Pub Fund initiative and Kickstarter – will also include a four-player racing game, a pole vault-based polo game, and a really weird mash-up between Super Smash Bros and football. Each of the titles are designed around local multiplayer play.

For more information on the Kickstarter campaign, point your browser through here. Contributing $15 will secure you a PS3 copy of the game at launch – but there are various other options available. Die Gute Fabrick needs $150,000 in order to hit its target, which it hopes will enable it to polish all four titles ahead of release.

Ah, all the music in the game is taken from Bach's Brandenburg Concerti. Not that there's any reason to do that besides game theme, because that awkward instrumentation and the fact that the tempo drastically changes makes it almost impossible to enjoy those amazing works! Oh am I missing the point
