Sony Computer Entertainment has given its upcoming release Puppeteer a special Halloween themed trailer. The game follows a small boy Kutaro in a dark fairytale world, where he is transformed into a puppet and his head is bitten of by the Moon Bear King; Kutaro must defeat the Moon Bear King to get back his head. Although, his is not the only head in this world, as he can pick up different heads to give him certain abilities, and a pair of giant scissors help him to cut through obstacles and enemies. The game is set for release in 2013.
The game’s striking aesthetic is inspired by its creator Gavin Moore’s love of Japanese Bunraku (puppet) theatre.
You can’t miss MyM issue number 6 on sale on the 4th of October! Ooh have we got a scary one for you this time, with the forthcoming ZombiU featured, set to be the most unique and unusual launch title for Nintendo’s new console. Senior scriptwriter Gabrielle Shrager gave us many more words in an interview about the London-based zombie apocalypse sim. Meanwhile our games editor got to try the game and make sure that it pushed all the right buttons – he tried to and we think he succeeded!
Rosario + Vampire has a prime slot with its season two pending release, as has Blue Exorcist also featured with its own part two on the way… Looks like there’ll be a couple more DVDs in your collection to celebrate Halloween 2012! Not to mention awesome coverage of the anticipated Resident Evil 6 – highly likely to spook up your console while your DVD player recovers.
And just because it’s Halloween it doesn’t mean everything in the magazine needs to be about zombies! Oh yes, we’ve reviewed The Raid, Tekken Tag Tournament, Kotoko and a good bunch of manga too, along with a delightfully extended look at the ninja in advance of the forthcoming Ninja Scroll steelbook. But we couldn’t resist the lure for too long, and had to get involved with Ultimate Zombie Feast and Zombie Flesh Eaters – they proved too tasty to pass over!
So, roleplayers, in ZombiU you can be the one who slays the zombies infesting our most beloved Buckingham Palace. But who knows? You might even be the one to win the brand spanking new Wii U in honour of the game’s release!
Available at WH Smith and all good newsagents from October 4th – don’t miss it!
