Is the gloomy economy getting you down? Is fighting the mall crowd gnawing at your nerves? Well, to help you forget all of that, we bring some early holiday cheer today with an awesome announcement for LocoRoco 2, the eagerly-awaited follow up to the 2006 sensation and well-known “happiest game ever.” Nothing fights doom and gloom like the LocoRoco!
I’m happy to officially announce here on the PlayStation Blog that LocoRoco 2 is coming to North America soon! Very soon. In fact, you will be able to play it on your PSP in less than 2 months — it will be available in stores on UMD on FEBRUARY 10, 2009! If you don’t have a PSP yet, this is a good reason to ask Santa for one.
With even more content than the original, LocoRoco 2 will add plenty of gameplay enhancements (like swimming in underwater levels!) and will feature new story-driven stages, unlockable quests and a new twist to the game’s catchy music. We have also added multiplayer mode via ad hoc. More to come on all of these new features and what else you can expect in LocoRoco 2 soon, so keep an eye out for us. But for now, enjoy this trailer and let us know what you think of it!
