FLOCK! Arrives on PSN on April 9!

John Diamonon's Avatar Posted by 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.

Looks like crap.

Pass. Too many other awesome PS3 titles to buy.

Post #200 will be mine!

Cant wait

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 said:

    April 2nd, 4:21 pm

    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.

Glad to see you back, John! It’d definitely been far too long.

    I know! Thanks. How\’s life poohead. LOL…nice name.

Realaride said:

April 2nd, 4:19 pm

Would it be considered spam if I spelled out FLOCK! with one letter per post?

    at least write a sentence, geez. :)

April 2nd, 4:19 pm

Well it’s about flocking time we got a release date. Been waiting for it since the demo.

dsigns209 said:

April 2nd, 4:21 pm

Will there be any future dlc for the game or is it too early to say?

    John Diamonon said:

    April 2nd, 4:23 pm

    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!

ZildjianKX said:

April 2nd, 4:21 pm

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

Narthalis said:

April 2nd, 4:21 pm

I’ll never get the 200th comment, but kudos for giving a copy away to whoever gets it. (And setting rules to stop idiots from cheating.)

Realaride said:

April 2nd, 4:23 pm

Why the flock won’t John Diamonon respond to my question?

    I don\’t know. Flock him!

Gump_ said:

April 2nd, 4:24 pm

LOL thanks for the free animals!!!!

BlitzXor said:

April 2nd, 4:25 pm

Wow, fast responses from the guys in charge. This blog is the greatest thing since… umm… hand-written correspondence? I’ll definitely check out the new demo, I have really high hopes for this game.

Who’s your main character in Street Fighter IV?

BlitzXor said:

Realaride said:

Seraboo said:

    April 2nd, 4:32 pm

    They almost did. Now, I just don\’t tell them I\’m posting.

Realaride said:

April 2nd, 4:30 pm

I have a legit question here, does Capcom intend to release any PSX games on the PSN in the near future? I’ve been wanting Mega Man Legends!

    John Diamonon's Avatar

    John Diamonon said:

    April 2nd, 4:34 pm

    We have a lot of PSone Classics coming. I wish I could tell you which ones.

Excellent, I’ve been waiting for a solid release date on Flock for awhile now. Generous contest here too John, any chance you can throw in one of those awesome playsets I’ve been seeing around the blogosphere as well ;)

Any updates on trophies for SFIIHD Remix or Bionic Commando Rearmed?

    John Diamonon said:

    April 2nd, 4:37 pm

    I get asked this question every time. =)

    Please check my previous blog replies. I\’m too tired to answer this question. I get about 3.5 hours of sleep a day lately. LOL.

BlitzXor said:

April 2nd, 4:36 pm

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?

    John Diamonon's Avatar

    John Diamonon said:

    April 2nd, 4:39 pm

    flocking in front of pets would scare them, quite frankly. they might think they\’re getting flocked next.

Realaride said:

April 2nd, 4:36 pm

Here’s the deal everyone. I get off work in about 25 minutes so what I need you to do is start posting more otherwise I won’t get a shot at post #200.

Jon_Mclane said:

April 2nd, 4:37 pm

It sounds like John would like to Flock with Veronica Belmont ;D

Chaos_Bladez said:

April 2nd, 4:38 pm

I want to get into Street Fighter. A free copy would insure that. :P

PHILDZNUTS said:

April 2nd, 4:38 pm

Demo was fun! Can’t wait to play the game!! Thanks for the update John

tearsofash said:

April 2nd, 4:38 pm

You’re right you were MIA. Haven’t seen you online in a while. Still haven’t had a chance to properly come to you in Home and introduce myself! Lol.

    John Diamonon said:

    April 2nd, 4:42 pm

    Sup ash! Yeah, it\’s been crazy lately. I don\’t have time for anything.

jazzyrider said:

April 2nd, 4:38 pm

I thought this game was already out. I remember seeing something awhile back in a Qore episode.

anyway, I don’t want Flock – I want more Veronica!

Jon_Mclane said:

April 2nd, 4:39 pm

BlitzXor said:

April 2nd, 4:39 pm

@40 I’m in the same situation, except I’m about to go TO work… night jobs rock, been screwing around on the net all day. Let’s do this!

Cyrooos1234 said:
