Nobi Nobi Boy announed

Nobi Nobi Boy announed

Namco has a great surprise for the attendees of the Playstation Premiere yesterday since Keita Takahashi, creator of Katamary Damacy who had been told to have quit the videogames world, was on hand to show his new concept called Nobi Nobi Boy. These 3 images are from a 30 seconds demo showing nothing more than this strange character on a gray background. You are confused? Good, that's what he expected!

I can see from these pictures this game is gonna be awesome. It's pure genius!!
Any word on a 360 version perhaps?

You can't be serious ^^
You don't even know how the game will be, what system or goal... *lol*

Well, what can one say. You instantly recognize the design. The prince was cooler but this looks really freaky as well. Since i liked katamari a little game play from this would be nice.

What is this? The next big Wii-game?

Wii Worm.. LOL! :P

This better be an "arcade game" (dunno what the PS3 people call them) ....It looks like some crazy version of "Snake"
Commented on 2007-07-18 13:39:32
lol ''PS3 people''...The world we live in....

Anyway this is about stretching appareantly.
In Katamari you collected stuff and became a ball, in this one you collect stuff to stretch.

Yes, it SOUNDS very Snake like but I'm sure it will be something slightly more interesting.

Never enjoyed Katamari (was very boring to be honest) so I'm not interested in
this UNLESS it's a cheap PSN game.

Its looks like a Green D***o(you can guess lol).

I'm actually looking forward to playing this more than FF13. I'm not kidding.

If it's fun like katamari, then I agree ^^
With a same soundtrack, that would be nice ^^

haha, this looks crazy, looks like you can tie yourself in knots.
Im sure it'll be good if its coming from the creators of katamari, those crazy japs!

You probably have to control both ends of the "nobi nobi boy" with the both analog sticks, or it's a 2 player game and each end is controlled by the other user. The goal can be tripping people, to trying solving puzzles that can only be solved doing simultaneous actions.

I think the six-axis is going to be used mainly, its made for quarky games like this.

    GriftGFX Yeah they just need to actually implement some of that stuff. They're charting an interesting path. I feel like they showed this game off before they knew what it was. (8 Hours ago)

    Tiz For instance, in Destiny, the whole point of getting loot is to get better equipped to do raids for better equipment to do raids for better equipment and sometimes Iron Banner. (8 Hours ago)

    Tiz @GriftGFX: It really depends how they approach it. If you can upgrade your ship, crew etc to navigate more dangerous parts of the sea then it will be a dangling carrot scenario. (8 Hours ago)

    Tiz Also, like the Division you have to cash in the loot before people steal it for themselves. The Division ran into the problem of just allowing anyone in the instances. (8 Hours ago)
