Puppeteer Reanimates PS3 in September, Supports PlayStation Move

Puppeteer may not be sizzling quite like its PlayStation 3 exclusive counterparts The Last of Us and Beyond: Two Souls, but it really does deserve a sprinkle more attention than it's getting. The theatrical platformer – which is due out on 10th September in North America and 11th September in Europe – sees you assume the role of a wooden puppet named Kutaro, who’s been tasked with taking down the evil Moon Bear King.

While the Japan Studio-developed adventure may not a boast a conventional art style, its emphasis on paper craft and props really sings in this story trailer. Some of the set-pieces on display – including a slew of battles against gigantic generals – are genuinely breathtaking, while the lighting looks stunning throughout.

Just to add to our excitement, the title will be 3D compatible and will include optional support for the PlayStation Move motion controller. It may be flying under the radar a little, but Puppeteer looks like it’s poised to shatter expectations when it launches later in the year. Do you share our enthusiasm? Let us know in the comments section below.

Wow, that looked awesome. Somebody made Kingdom Hearts (the scissors are the key) into the best of LBP. Scary voice acting to boot.

Though as Ginkgo said - how is it played? Since it looks like a LBP fan project I'm assuming thats how it started and thats how it will play, but who knows?

I was surprised at the end though to see the $40 MSRP, I thought this was a $15 PSN game. Guess I'll wait and see.

It does make me a want a marionette two handed Move game though along the lines of Best Sketcher. Maybe on the PS4?

I'm excited for this game, I have been for months. I'm not too crazy about the right stick for Kutaro and left stick for Yin-Yang control scheme, but I can get used to it.

It looks potentially interesting, but I will definitely wait to see how reviews and other impressions pan out.
