It’s been a while since the Japanese PlayStation Store gave us a great reason to visit it but that all changes this week with the announcement that a demo for Puppeteer will be available from the Japanese PSN this Thursday, June 27th.
Entitled “Rehearsal Version”, the demo will provide some much-needed hands-on time with this visually arresting 2D platformer from SCE Japan Studio and creative director Gavin Moore who previously worked as director of animation at The Getaway studio Team Soho.
We’ve heard nothing about an English demo for Puppeteer so it’s likely that this imminent Japanese sample will be our only way to play the game for a good few weeks until a localised version is released.
Puppeteer is out exclusively for PS3 on September 10th in the US and September 11th in European territories. Head over here for El33tonline’s previous coverage of this highly anticipated platformer.
