'LocoRoco' (PSP) Announced - Screens

by Rainier on Feb. 9, 2006 @ 5:15 p.m. PST

Sony Computer Entertainment Europe is thrilled to announce the Summer 2006 release of its PSP exclusive LocoRoco. Bright, refreshing and compulsive, LocoRoco plunges you into a colourful world where jelly-like creatures (LocoRoco) sing, roll and bounce their way through levels to reach their goals.

LocoRoco are free-roaming, free-rolling creatures. With their own happy language, hypnotic backgrounds and music, LocoRoco is like nothing you have ever seen before – you’ll just have to share it!

Instantly accessible, guide your LocoRoco through the various worlds using a simple tilting and bouncing gameplay mechanic – using the PSP system’s [L] and [R] buttons to tilt the ground up to about 30 degrees in either direction. The jelly-like LocoRoco just can’t stay still - guide these little characters as they bounce, roll and jump their way to the goal, avoiding splinters and enemies.

Grow LocoRoco by eating fruit, the fatter they are by the end of the level, the more points you get. And when they are too big to fit through narrow pathways, split into tiny LocoRoco at the push of a button to squeeze through small spaces and uncover hidden rooms and treats. Pop out the other side and combine back into one big LocoRoco to continue your journey. You can even guide your LocoRoco through certain walls to collect secret items, so there’s plenty to satisfy skilled gamers too.

With various levels such as snow mountains and jungles, and unique characters to meet along the way, you can be sure that your LocoRoco will always be smiling. Perfectly proportioned for the PSP system, LocoRoco is so happy, bright and unusual, it’s guaranteed to keep you smiling too.
