Fans of the ball-based platformer LocoRoco franchise will be pleased to hear that Sony has revealed new details about its upcoming spin-off, LocoRoco Midnight Carnival, which premiered at GamesCom this week.
Sony Entertainment of America Santa Monica producer Tsubasa Inaba posted on the PlayStation Blog about the new game, and revealed the following brief summary of what players can expect from the downloadable PSP title:
“The mischievous BuiBui woke LocoRoco up from beauty sleep. It seems BuiBui have gone and built some challenging levels for LocoRoco to tackle. Help LocoRoco conquer the levels in hope to get back to bed!...This time around, LocoRoco has a super enhanced bounce called 'Boing!' Use this to your advantage and literally bounce off walls, find LocoRoco’s friend MuiMui, and go for the goal!”
Midnight Carnival will feature 16 traditional stages, three bonus stages and two mini-games. It will also support ad-hoc multiplayer (versus and co-op), and will include a worldwide leaderboard. Sony has yet to reveal a released date, but it's probably safe to assume that it will be released around the time the PSP Go launches on October 1st.
