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!

“we’ll be seeing you on the battlefield soon”
This part of the blog really caught my eye. “Soon” better mean by the end of this month, or early next month. I’ve been worried that it might not even come out this year.

How many players are going to be per side? Any chance for multiple players or only 1 vs. 1?

I’ve seen a few videos with a chicken running around the level from what I thought was the Mage casting a spell on an enemy player? How long will this spell last if you don’t have any Mage’s on your side?

Thanks for the update and can’t wait for the game! :D

Will the game have an option to mute disrespectful players? Also will the game have an option to use push to talk or only open mic or could we have a choice of either like warhawk does? I hate open mic 90% of the time it sounds like people got something in there mouth when they talk or all you can hear is there game through the mic.

@103:

The effects of the chicken potion doesn’t last long. It’s just enough to render the enemy players harmless and make your escape or attack.

I wasn’t part of the beta and I’m on the fence about this, so I need a demo.

Take a look at the second screenshot one more time. Notice the icon with the Blue Team’s princess? She’s brunette.

+ Otsego_Undead on July 17th, 2009 at 1:49 pm said:

I too am curious about joining games with friends, and custom soundtracks.
Is there a way to TURN UP the blood? like an uber/gory splatterfest? Maybe as DLC? I’d love it.
Can we expect DLC? New classes? Unique uniforms? Gameplay modes (like, defend the princess? Or Princess HQ? Princess Domination?


116

+ Skater_Ricky on July 17th, 2009 at 1:50 pm said:

118

+ Otsego_Undead on July 17th, 2009 at 1:52 pm said:

@ Ladies_man_1
are you serious? do you know anything about the game? This is very much a dude’s game. Did you see the blood?
How many of you even know what this game actually is? Can you at least find out before you post?

My top concern is how well does the game plays online? Does it have its own servers or does it run on the other players’ connection?

The reason I ask is because I have a very unstable and slow internet connection. The only games I’ve been able to play with no lag are those that use Sony servers such as Resistance, Warhawk and the Uncharted 2 beta to name a few. I’m not sure how Wipeout HD works but I haven’t had problems with it online nor with Burnout Paradise.

Those game ran completely lag free. On the other hand, I’ve never been able to play LittleBigPlanet online since as I recall it’s P2P. I really want to buy this game but if it uses the same P2P system as LBP I won’t be buying it since I won’t be able to play it online.

so…will I be able to play it as smoothly as Warhawk (which feels like a single player game) or will I be treated to a photo slideshow of the game (as in LBP)?

btw I love LBP! I’m just sad I can’t play it with my friends online…

If it’s going to be a while until release, will there be another beta?

Also, will this game have full 31/51 trophy support, or will it just be a 12 trophy title?


122

+ Tony_Nibbles on July 17th, 2009 at 2:03 pm said:

Who screwed up and is it fixed yet? :p

Can’t wait for it, hope you sort it all out soon.

+ Tikicobra on July 17th, 2009 at 2:05 pm said:

+ Fluidshine on July 17th, 2009 at 2:10 pm said:

All I want to know is if there will be split-screen multiplayer/ any type of local multiplayer so I can play with my friends sitting next to me. Other then that the game is perfect!

+ Dogofthunder on July 17th, 2009 at 2:13 pm said:

Before my questions, I would like to offer some constructive feedback. At one point, I was more excited for this game than any other release this year. The game was heavily hyped (perhaps over-hyped) earlier this year. The Blog repeatedly said that information was coming. Weeks passed with no news. When information was finally released, it was a contest for a beta that non one who worked during the day had a chance to enter. It was also suggested that those who were truly looking forward to the game would have a found a way to enter (that was a tad insulting. Needless, to say, I’m not as excited as I once was for this game. Anyway, thanks for listening. I know it’s a game, but it’s the games that help us escape from work, bills and stress!

So, my questions:

1. Help me get excited for the game again! What do ya got?

2. I noticed that you can choose the skin color of your toon. Any other physical traits we can choose, such as pointy ears, tusks, horns or face paint?

3. Any special guest-stars planned (i.e. Kratos, Nariko, etc.)?

4. How heavy of a fantasy setting is this set in? We know magic exists – how about dragons, elves and goblins?


132

+ john_ecko on July 17th, 2009 at 2:20 pm said:

The #1 question is obviously when the game will actually be released. I say you guys answer that one right now if there’s an official date already.


133

+ Ruffday on July 17th, 2009 at 2:24 pm said:

Will you open a Home space ?


134

+ Mr_Undisclosed on July 17th, 2009 at 2:25 pm said:

#120 by p2p did you mean pay to play?

Main things everyone wants to know:

1. Release Date?
2. Price?
3. Custom Soundtrack?


135

+ ynp7 on July 17th, 2009 at 2:27 pm said:

Three questions:

1) Has some sort of squad-chat system been implemented? In the beta there was a big problem with people getting cut out when they were talking at the same time, even with only 3 or 4 people mic’d on a team.

2) Will there be a way to form a party with people on your friends list so that when you join a game together you all end up on the same team? Sort of related, but is there going to be a way to set a preferred starting team?

3) Are we going to see additional maps or other add-ons released on a regular basis? Will they be free or for pay? Other than maps what additional content, if any, is currently in the works? Even if the game were only shipping with the one map from the beta it’d last a good while, but a little refresh every few months wouldn’t be bad and I’m sure I’m not the only person who would love to throw some more money at you guys.

Is it possible for 2 players on one console to play Fat princess online at the same time? Like Warhawk?


137

+ GameOverGreggy on July 17th, 2009 at 2:37 pm said:

When is it coming out?


138

+ Ztnepres on July 17th, 2009 at 2:39 pm said:

Thank for this opportunity.
my questions are:
Is there a limit to how fast the princess becomes big? Does she eat while she is being carried by the opponent?

Given that upgrades will increase the abilities of classes, does damage very get increased? If damage is increased, is there a counter measure to prevent quick deaths? i.e. increased health as well

What is the time limit for each map/mode? Is there a prince mode where a player is a VIP and can only be the one carrying the princess back or has an increased carrying/running speed.

Do PSP and PS3 players interact in online matches?

Is there a limit the number of players using a class an any given time?

Is voice chat available? Is a Fat Princess home space or future DLCs yet planned?

thank you

Has there been a set price for the game? If so how much?


140

+ Ztnepres on July 17th, 2009 at 2:47 pm said:

If theres any game currently on the PSN, it would be Fat princess that can successfully thrive as a subscription either monthly or quarterly or what ever. Is this a direction that might be looked into?

There hasn’t been any subscription services for any psn game. However, would the additional capitol help speed up dlc, increase number or servers, a sequel, etc or does Sony have everything covered. GIven the recent problems of Battlefield `1943, what are the chances Fat Princess will be troubled during its debut?


141

+ Xrapids on July 17th, 2009 at 2:51 pm said:

Hi thank you for this opportunity I was wondering if you can compare and contrast the psp version and the ps3 version of the game also will both versions be available at the same time?


142

+ MixPix72 on July 17th, 2009 at 2:54 pm said:

2 questions.
1. When?
2. How much?


143

+ Gr00v3r06 on July 17th, 2009 at 2:57 pm said:

When is the game coming out? I loved the beta. I want the rest. Also will you fix the hit detection with the workers and the trees and rocks.


144

+ Anti-Dentite on July 17th, 2009 at 3:07 pm said:

So are you going to answer any of the 140+ questions or do you not care about the people who have been wanting information pertaining to this game?


145

+ Carcomar on July 17th, 2009 at 3:09 pm said:

Is it still slated for summer or should we expect it for fall? I don’t mind waiting for a good game to get ironed out, but I would like to know when I could expect it. If not a date, then at least the month? :[

Also, I’ve noticed a lot of tearing in the dev blogs. Is that something that’s being worked on?


146

+ Artificialheart on July 17th, 2009 at 3:13 pm said:

Will this game support voice chat ?


147

+ MAST83 on July 17th, 2009 at 3:16 pm said:

Will there be any split-screen support? This is a game that my wife would love to play with me, at the same time. So i’m hoping for some sort of split-screen for online play.

How many maps will there be at launch?

Will there be any sort of persistent leveling up, or stat tracking? (IE. Call of Duty style)

Will there be a party system? I obviously want to be able to play game after game with a friend without having to send him an invite every time.

This is a game that is going to revolve around voice communication. Are you guys working hard on voice-chat, so that it works extremely well, and can be heard clearly?

Any chance for user created levels that can be shared online?
