Team ASOBI is one of the rising stars of PlayStation Studios. Originally assembled as a research and development division within Japan Studio, the team has quietly established itself as a fully-fledged first-party outfit following the success of Astro Bot Rescue Mission and Astro’s Playroom. Led by ex-London Studio brain box Nicolas Doucet, the team is tasked with making the most out of Sony’s hardware.

While this video is very much a fluff piece, it delves into the team’s creative ambitions and working culture. Unlike many Japanese studios, the group has largely eradicated overtime, and has created a “fun” work environment which is reflected in its games. Its goal is to extract as much as possible from PlayStation technology, and the likelihood is that it’s currently working on a new title for PSVR2 – presumably in the Astro Bot series.
