During Sony’s pre-gamescom press conference it was revealed that SCE Japan Studio is working on a new PS3 exclusive called Puppeteer. The game is set in a magical puppeteer’s theatre and stars a young boy named Kutaro who stumbles upon a magical pair of scissors that allow him to cut through the scenery and even slice up certain bosses!
Here’s Puppeteer’s full synopsis courtesy of the PlayStation Blog:
“Puppeteer takes place in a magical puppet theatre, owned and run by the slightly eccentric but thoroughly charming Professor Gregorious T. Oswald. His latest production is the weirdly titled “The Perilous Journey of a Boy Named Kutaro.”
“On one dark, moonlit night, the star of the show, a young boy named Kutaro, is carried away by the maleficent Moon Bear King to a black castle, where the unlucky lad is transformed into a puppet. Kutaro then displeases the terrible tyrant who duly devours the boy’s wooden head and casts away his body. But the headless hero is not alone, for he discovers a very special pair of magic scissors, which will help him on his harrowing quest to find his head — and his way home.”
