It’s Okabu Launch Day

Simon Oliver's Avatar + Posted by Simon Oliver on Oct 18, 2011 // founder, HandCircus

It’s time to warm up your flippers and take to the skies of Okabu! Today is launch day, and if you head to the PlayStation Store in a few hours, you’ll find Okabu waiting there for you. The free demo is also available today, so if you’d like to take it for a spin, now’s your chance!


In case this is the first time that you’ve seen the game, it’s time for a bit of background. Okabu is a co-op action-adventure following the adventures of two cloud-whale brothers, Kumulo and Nimbe. They’ve been dispatched from their aerial homelands to investigate the source of a toxic pollution that’s been poisoning their people.

As they reach the surface, they encounter four cloud-flying heroes, each with their own unique powers: from the Harpoon-wielding Captain Monkfish to the animal-charming powers of Picolo. Teaming up, they embark on an epic adventure to free their people and put a stop to the onward march of the industrialized Doza tribe.

Featuring a Platinum trophy, two player couch co-op, four expansive worlds, online leaderboards and four unique minigames, we hope Okabu is going to keep you busy for a LONG time!

If you’d like to find out a little more about the game, you can check out our previous posts on the PlayStation blog to meet the heroes, and find out about the gameplay and four worlds that make up the adventure. This game is also part of October’s Only on PSN program.

Duel User Account/PSN Login for the local coop? So multiple people in one household can earn trophies together?

@7 @8
I don’t know about trophies but LBP let everyone use their profile save, which at this point should be standard in multiplayer games. I hate in Castle crashes being called xxx1 xxx2 xxx3. My biggest concern for this game would be telling them apart though. Mario and Luigi are red and green for a reason. Very much looking forward to trying out the demo and finding out “in a few hours”. (I really hate when people post “out now” way before the store updates. )

@8
yes there has been games that did trophies for multiple profiles, LBP2, Borderlands, Resistance 2, so yes it’s completely do able it’s just a lot of developers are too lazy to support the feature, I can’t believe this feature isn’t mandatory.

It’s co-op only?

+ Kirkpad on October 18th, 2011 at 2:28 pm said:

It’s not co-op only, it has singleplayer. The co-op is offline only.

PROBABLY going to get this, unless the demo is terrible.
