Puppeteer Trailer

Sony has presented a new trailer for SCE Japan Studio’s upcoming PS3 game, Puppeteer, this week at the Tokyo Game Show. Puppeteer follows a kidnapped Kutaro, who must escape the clutches of the evil Moon Bear King. Unfortunately for Kutaro, the Moon Bear King had swallowed his head and trapped him in the body of a wooden puppet. Armed with massive scissors, Kutaro slices to retrieve his original head, while utilizing a wide range of temporary ones along the way.

As illustrated in the trailer, the environment is a dark one, while the animation style is reminiscent of Little Big Planet. The game is played inside of a puppet theater, with an audience to watch the act. Puppeteer is available for pre-order and is scheduled to be released in 2013.
