Noby Noby Boy Eats Up PSN Next Month


Namco Bandai’s bizarre PS3 PlayStation Network download title Noby Noby Boy finally has a confirmed release date. Previously thought to be coming out by the end of this month, the latest brainchild of Katamari Damacy creator Keita Takahashi will actually launch on PSN in February. The 19th to be exact. The best part is it’ll only cost a mere $4.99!

Noby Noby Boy is described as a game that “lets players expand their imaginations as they stretch a creature named BOY to incredible lengths across the playground-like planets of the solar system.” From the looks of it, it’s basically Katamari Damacy with a new twist. Instead of rolling around picking stuff up to make as big a ball as possible, you’re crawling around with a worm-like whatever the hell it is gobbling up everything in site to stretch out BOY’s body as much as you can.

Noby Noby Boy will also feature the ability to record and upload footage directly to YouTube and an intriguing online component that will take your recorded BOY lengths, combine them with the lengths of all other players from around the world and then apply them to a persistent online character known as GIRL. Then as more and more people play and contribute and GIRL’s length increases, new stages open up for all players to enjoy. That’s one incredibly unique take on co-op gaming.
