FLOCK! Arrives on PSN on April 9!

John Diamonon's Avatar + Posted by John Diamonon on Apr 02, 2009 // Product Marketing Manager, Capcom

OK, OK. I know I’ve been M.I.A. lately. You also may have noticed that I haven’t been on my PS3 in a while playing SF4. Well, life’s been hectic but exciting, and any free time has been spent catching up on sleep (I promise to catch up on all my PS3 messages, sorry)!

The real reason I’m here, and it’s not to keep you updated on my life, is to let you know that next Thursday, FLOCK! finally arrives on PSN. Soon you’ll be able to manipulate cute, cuddly animals with the help of your trusty UFO. You don’t even have to be in a farm to flock sheep, Capcom is giving you the ability to do this in the privacy of your own home. You can even call a friend over and flock.

If you’ve never herd of FLOCK! before, here’s a video with the beautiful Veronica Belmont and one the folks at Capcom going over some of the cool features in the game (I’m loving the outfit Veronica!).

Did I mention trophy and in-game XMB music support? Another cool feature is the level editor where you can create your own plushy environments and share them online. There’s also a rating system where you can praise the brilliant work of others, or pan some of the more awkward levels that are made available (Giving fans creative freedom is not always a good thing).

So, if you’ve been keeping up with my blogs, I’ve been hinting for months about a cool surprise for PSN gamers this year. Well, stay tuned. I’m ready to talk about it at the end of the month.

Oh and finally, comment number 200 gets a free, redeemable token of FLOCK! and a copy of Street Fighter 4 (No spamming allowed. If you post two times in a row and hit number 200, the prize goes to the next person. Send me a PM to my PSN ID and give me your address to get your prize.).

Yours truly,
John Diamonon

    Yes, Voozi is way cool. When you go on HOME, come look for me so I can add you as a friend! Then we can have a running man battle.

What’s the deal, is nobody commenting because they are waiting for the numbers to get higher? Well, anyway, glad you added a level creator that makes me a lot more interested in this game. Will there be a new demo available, or is the old Qore demo still accurate of what you guys have put together?

    + John Diamonon on April 2nd, 2009 at 4:21 pm said:

    Yes a demo will be available. It\’s slightly different from the Qore one. But the demo definitely doesn\’t show all the cool things in the game.

    No DLC is planned for the game. I was going to charge for each animal, but I decided to throw them all in for free!

How much is it going to be, $9.99? Any chance of a demo?

Is it okay to Flock in front of your pet? I mean, they might get the wrong idea and think something bad is happening…

like they too might be abducted by an alien spacecraft or something. Wait… what did you think I was talking about?
