Coming Soon to PSN Store: Joe Danger for PS3

Sean Murray's Avatar Posted by on May 31, 2010 // Founder, Hello Games

Hello World! It’s exciting to be back on the PlayStation.Blog. It’s even more exciting to be able to announce that Joe Danger, the PS3-exclusive title that allows you to fulfill your daredevil fantasies, will launch on PSN June 8th!

I can’t describe what it feels like to see our own game actually hit the PlayStation Store. My three friends and I at Hello Games couldn’t be more nervous and giddy. We barely slept for the last few months, trying to get the game finished and polished. I doubt we’ll sleep for a month more, trying to stay on top of the leaderboards.

What I really can’t wait for is the surprises we have in store for PS3 gamers. This has been a total labor of love for us, and I’m really looking forward to seeing what people think of the game. If you want to know more about the Joe Danger, you can read some previews here, here and here, but first let me tell you a bunch of stuff you might not know.

Joe Danger for PS3

Stunt, Create and Share
Creating levels in Joe Danger is as fast and fun as playing the game itself. In fact, you never leave the game! As you ride through your level, press Edit at any time to freeze the world and play about with it however you want. You can drop a ramp then launch Joe over it, or place a Shark Tank just before he lands.

You can even create your own challenges to send to your friends. Lay down the gauntlet with your own Multiplayer race level, or set out a Coin Dash against the clock, or a tricky Target Smash. You can complete a friend’s level, then add more danger and send it right back for the ultimate challenge. That’s how we’ve created all our own levels in the game.

Joe Danger for PS3

It’s a BIG game

You take Joe from zero to hero across eleven tours, which are each made up of up to ten levels. Levels are set in a crazy diverse set of hazard filled game modes like Target Smash, Assault Course, Race, Coin Dash, Bowling Bounce, and Puzzle Mode.

Each of those levels feature a high-score table and up to eight challenge stars earned by thrilling the crowd. Some involve collecting hidden pick-ups high in the sky using skilful boosting, beating Team Nasty to the finish line, collecting the letters of D-A-N-G-E-R , racing against the clock, launching your bike at top speed towards a rack of bowling pins and scoring a strike, or keeping the crowd cheering as you combo a whole level. Sometimes you’ll be trying to do all of those things at once!

Joe Danger is all about playing with friends, because playing Joe Danger together is how we’ve built this game. That might mean passing the pad on a heart-breakingly difficult Coin Dash, or punching your rivals off their bike in Splitscreen. Sometimes it’s crossing the finish line to immediately see all your online friends highscores, and instantly restarting. More often, it’s about downloading a new level and trying to complete it, before making your own tweaks.

We want this to be a competitive game, something to play with friends and one we hope you’ll want to tell everyone about.

The PSN Store publish date is June 8th — and we hope you enjoy it!

I have been impatiently and anxiously waiting on this game for quite some time now. I have been following it since the reveal at PAX East. I can’t believe it is almost here already. The game looks phenomenal guys. It really reminds me of Excitebike (which was and is still one of my favorite nostalgic games of the past); but with much, much more in tow with the humor, creation capabilities and so on. Definitely a first day purchase for me…..congratulations guys, on finally getting this out!!!

Excite Bike meets LBP!? HECK YES!!!

$14.99 and Downloadable!? HELL YES!!!

Supporting an indie developer on the best console in the world!? EFF YEAH!!!

Really hope this is a real hit for you guys. You sound like you’ve been very hard at work on it and I am definitely going to be buying this game. I love previews and posts that are detailed like this, really give insight to the game and the company and both are winners in this case. Keep it up and see you June 8th!!

Ok I want this game NOW. After most of the releases since april have been really dull and I have had nothing to even tempt me to buy something, this comes along. It’s a platform game with a motorbike and has all the things you ever wanted from a stuntbike type game and more, and it looks great. If only Mod Nation Racers looked this good I would have brought it. Nice one Sony…..now let me know when I can get it on PSN.

Is this Similar to Little Big Planet where you can make levels and post them online for others to download?
Also would you have to pay to download the levels others made?
