Fat Princess: Her Majesty Awaits…

Deborah Mars's Avatar + Posted by Deborah Mars on Jul 17, 2009 // Managing Producer, SCEA Santa Monica Studio

Hey Everyone,

This is Deb Mars, Managing Producer at SCEA Santa Monica Studio. We know many of you are anxiously awaiting the sweet PlayStation Network arrival of none other than Her Royal Highness: Fat Princess.

You have been very patient, and we really do appreciate all your support. Since E3 back in early June, we and the fantastic development team at Titan Studios have been working very hard to get the fine lady and her beloved subjects all ready for their much-anticipated debut.

So here’s the deal: We have tons of info to share with you, but we want to take this opportunity to let you all ask the questions. So, go ahead…ask us. Let us know what you want to know.

Post questions below in response to this blog entry, and then we’ll gather a bunch of them to put forth to Titan Studios. They will answer these questions directly during a PlayStation Eye video chat interview with our good pal, Jeff R, next week.

Enjoy some of the new screenshots, and we’ll be seeing you on the battlefield soon!

When does the game release? How much does the game cost?

+ TerryVSL on July 17th, 2009 at 12:08 pm said:

So the game is delayed.

Why not just be open and honest about the fact?

Hey Titan Studios. Great game, can’t wait for it to come. How does it feel to work with SCEA and how much freedom do you have when creating a game for the PSN?

+ TRIX_BOL on July 17th, 2009 at 12:10 pm said:

Well, summer isn’t over yet. So I guess we just need to get a specific release date.

+ Craazy on July 17th, 2009 at 12:11 pm said:

Please give us a time frame or a solid release date

As one of the people that has looked forward to this game since day one, was a member of the Beta, helped and followed.

There is only one real question!

WHEN?!


13

+ Skoltnik on July 17th, 2009 at 12:12 pm said:

All I care about is a release date. thank you.


14

+ mikemill on July 17th, 2009 at 12:13 pm said:

I have a question: When’s the release date?! I thought this game was projected to drop in June…


15

+ dong29 on July 17th, 2009 at 12:13 pm said:

When will it release?

Will we be able to turn off or tone down the blood?

Will there be local co-op?

+ snake6000 on July 17th, 2009 at 12:14 pm said:

When does it come out?!


17

+ BlooodyCow on July 17th, 2009 at 12:14 pm said:

Is working on Fat Princess for the PSP taken away resources (developer) away from the PS3 version? It seems that since the unveil of the PSP version, there has been nothing but delay and bad news for the PS3 version.


18

+ TRIX_BOL on July 17th, 2009 at 12:14 pm said:

Questions for *Titan Studios*.

Is there going to be in-game music?

Maybe a PlayStation Eye compatibility with Fat Princess?

Will we be able to record in-game videos (like Rag Doll Kung Fu: Fists Of Plastic)?


19

+ enewtabie on July 17th, 2009 at 12:15 pm said:

Persistant stats or some sort of web based stat tracking? I want to know how much cat the big girl is eating and how many Archers I’ve killed. Thanks!

+ djpenny1 on July 17th, 2009 at 12:16 pm said:

will there be any DLC ?


21

+ BlooodyCow on July 17th, 2009 at 12:16 pm said:

Will the game support custom soundtrack via the in-game XMB?

Will there be a Party system to make it easier to play with your friends and not against them?

+ Dravonic on July 17th, 2009 at 12:16 pm said:

Hi,

Fist, congratulations on the game, I’ve been reading about it and it’s really unique and interesting.

I just have a couple of questions. Can you confirm it it will run on 1080p and the frame rate? I was unable to find a reliable source on this. If anyone knows, let me know please.

Also, although unique, the game concept seems quite simple. What are you gonna do to keep it from being repetitive and thus, after a while, boring?


23

+ enewtabie on July 17th, 2009 at 12:17 pm said:

Cake not Cats. However that would be interesting.


24

+ Optimafrogg on July 17th, 2009 at 12:18 pm said:

What are the different modes that will be in the game? How many will there be? will there be local multiplayer as well as a story mode?


25

+ Revolutionary on July 17th, 2009 at 12:18 pm said:

The only questions I’m sure most of us have (at least, those of us that have played the beta) are:
1. When?
and
2. How much?


26

+ Stoffinator on July 17th, 2009 at 12:18 pm said:

I would like to know if Fat Princess will feature Youtube support? Where we can upload 10min videos to our Youtube channels.


27

+ ZAANOS on July 17th, 2009 at 12:18 pm said:

Hey Titan Studios, any chance we’ll see some Home Rewards from Fat Princess. Would love to see a large blow up Fat Princess ornament for my Home Space. Or Hats of the many classes to wear! Or even tiny ornaments of the cast of characters will do! I want to see em fighting all over my Home Space! Don’t forget the CAKE.

+ MalachiRuffy on July 17th, 2009 at 12:19 pm said:

- In Game Music?
- In game Screenshot taking?
- Leaderboards?
- Stat tracking?
- Leveling system(Think warhawk)?
- Is DLC Planned?

And this posting makes me think that there will be another delay


29

+ Jack-Bauer-89 on July 17th, 2009 at 12:19 pm said:

Heres my question:

Will one region of the world get Fat Princess before another?

(like the US usually gets games before EU)

Thanks!

+ ArcticArctos on July 17th, 2009 at 12:20 pm said:

I also heard about the delay, which is unfortunate, but I think we would all rather have a quality game than a game that was rushed out because we demanded it. Satisfaction would be the game in a polished state rather than one that was put out and has issues which would diminish the end product.

Some questions I have are echoed from others.

- How much is it expected to cost?
- Would there be plans for DLC in the future such as new maps?
- Would there be plans for special match-ups such as a team of developers vs. players?


31

+ gachzorge on July 17th, 2009 at 12:21 pm said:

How many maps will there be at the start? and do you plan on DLC?


32

+ plaztiksyke on July 17th, 2009 at 12:24 pm said:

1. Will there be local co-op? splitscreen, merging splitscreen (as in The Warriors), or same-screen?

2. Can a local co-op team of 3-4 players play against other people online? built-in or via DLC?

3. Will it play in native 1080p? If it plays in 720p, will it use FSAA to upscale the 720p render to 1080p?

4. Are the soundtrack and sound effects encoded with a lossless codec? and/or 24-bit? Will we be able to select LPCM output for highest quality (so as to avoid an unnecessary decode+encode cycle) like in the Uncharted 2 beta? Flock’s low-quality audio was a big disappointment to me, which is why I didn’t buy it at the premium pricing even though I liked the game.

5. Will there be a level creator and the ability to share levels, either in-game or as separate DLC (as with Cuboid)?

I’m really looking forward to this game, it looks really fun.


33

+ PeinRinnegan on July 17th, 2009 at 12:24 pm said:

Will there be different types of ‘flags’ in the game other than the same princess?
maybe different princesses, kings, guest characters from other games ??


34

+ alessat on July 17th, 2009 at 12:25 pm said:

These are the questions I’d like to be answered.

- Have all the bugs been fixed?
- What’s the release date?
- Price?
- How many maps will there be?
- How many game modes?
- DLC in the future?
- Will there be intelligent match-making to make the battles even?

Thanks!


35

+ spunnups on July 17th, 2009 at 12:25 pm said:

How many maps will be available at launch?

Will you add more classes in the future?

Will there be DLC? New weapons, abilities, etc?


36

+ freemantim on July 17th, 2009 at 12:25 pm said:

Will there be keyboard support?
How important is voice chat in working as a team?
Are there quick, easy ways to visually communicate?


37

+ Ftwrthtx on July 17th, 2009 at 12:25 pm said:

The beta testing was a blast and really sold me on the game.

I spoke with Craig Leah back at the GDC PS blog meet up and we discussed the possibility of remote play using the PSP. Was that ever implemented or will it be in the future?


38

+ sde3456 on July 17th, 2009 at 12:27 pm said:

I was hyped for the game but i think this delay may have killed it. It would have been a perfect game for the summer with the slow releases but with it being a game that needs a lot of people playing to get the most out of it the game will probably be sent to die with all the big releases coming this fall/winter.


39

+ Seafea on July 17th, 2009 at 12:27 pm said:

*sigh* That sounds like it’s supposed to be the title of the post in which you reveal the release date, but alas…

The reles date for Fat Princess on ps3 and psp??There will be BETA for Fat Princess for PSP version?Psp is likely to connect with the PS3 for sharing date in game(maps,multiplayer modes,etc)


41

+ Luillin on July 17th, 2009 at 12:27 pm said:

What was wrong with the game anyway???

will we be able to share screens or video???? That would be fantastic =)

Any chance of Home game-launching?

Could you please get someone to provide my area with high speed internet so I can play this game?????

When is going to be released? Future DLC like more maps, weapons or character classes? How much is going to cost?


45

+ peevmyster on July 17th, 2009 at 12:29 pm said:

Will I be able to Mute all these dumb asses that want ingame music, and force me to listen to all their crappy music?

Will this have clan support?


46

+ Spunta on July 17th, 2009 at 12:30 pm said:

WHEN?
HOW MUCH?
Keyboard support?
And why not tell us there’s a delay? There’s obviously one in place.
Is there local play for say two people to play split screen?
Pringles or Lays?


47

+ Ausohoj on July 17th, 2009 at 12:30 pm said:

I have one question not about the release date (even though i do want to know when it comes out.)

Is the cake a lie?


48

+ damonthemoney on July 17th, 2009 at 12:32 pm said:

Do you plan on releasing DLC in the future?

Will there be Split-Screen play? I’d LOVE to play a game like this with a friend in the same room as me!!!

When does the Game come out?

How much will the game cost?

And how deep is the Gameplay?

Will you PLEASE include support for a Platinum Trophy for this title!? It would be completely awesome. A game of this magnitude deserves to be one of the PSN Titles to have a Platinum Trophy. ;)

Will the game feature voice chat support, and will it support group or clan formation?
