Puppeteer Powers: Heads Will Roll


Gavin Moore's Avatar Posted by on Jul 26, 2013 // Art Director, SCE Worldwide Studios

Puppeteer is nearly upon us. To keep you satisfied until launch on September the 10th, we put together a short video that explains some of the concepts behind the strange and fantastical world of Puppeteer. I would ignore the weird English guy and his funny accent and concentrate on all the luscious, varied gameplay. If you like what you see — and you’re looking for a unique gaming experience this fall — then don’t hesitate to pre-order and pick up Puppeteer’s soundtrack for free.

Kutaro can collect more than 100 heads in Puppeteer, from the Hamburger head to the Lion head. But none are more valuable than the Hero Heads, each of which bestows Kutaro with a powerful new ability that you’ll keep for the rest of the adventure. The Knight Head will enable you to deflect incoming projectiles with the Shield Power — a useful method for dealing with some of Puppeteer’s massive bosses. With the Ninja Head you’ll wield the powerful Bomb Power, which enables you to hurl explosives at enemies and blow up parts of the environment. With the Moon Pirate Head, you can hurl a grappling hook that yanks enemies closer or latches onto a boss creature for an intense tug of war competition! Finally, the Wrestler Head lets you crash down on foes with Brute Power, which is so mighty that it can even shatter parts of the environment!

We’re looking forward to your thoughts on Puppeteer when it launches on PS3 in September. What else would you like to know?

Game looks great, guys. When do we see the multiplayer in action? That makes the difference between a day one purchase and waiting a while for my family.

Sony, Sony, Sony you know we want this game on the vita and you know you want to make it happen so announce that is coming to the psvita as well, this game is simple perfect for your handheld device and it will most likely expand the game fanbase.

It’s a shame this isn’t a PS4 launch title. It looks so much better than Knack.


+ neon_tooth on July 26th, 2013 at 8:09 am said:

already preordered. can’t wait. This and rayman legends (played on vita) will make this september all about 2d platformers. and I agree with remanutd5, we want a vita version…


+ MarinoBrea on July 26th, 2013 at 8:14 am said:

The craft put into this game is second to none.


+ KidCommando on July 26th, 2013 at 8:54 am said:

The game looks phenomenal, amazing, and down right FUN!

Keep doing your thing Gavin….even if your team hates you, we love you. :P

Oh yeah these are fun game with platforming in mind, this will be another game to add to my list of games!!!!!!!!


+ stlthriot on July 26th, 2013 at 9:20 am said:

Everything about this game looks amazing! Love the art style and that it is a sidescroller platformer!! :D


+ lisatsunami on July 26th, 2013 at 9:30 am said:

This is beautiful and creative but I don’t like platformers. I know I’m in the minority but I didn’t grow up playing these types of games so I don’t have that nostalgic feeling for them.

I’ll keep this game in mind for when/if my current huge backlog of PS3 games ever depletes.

While a vita version would be nice…I did buy a PS3 just so I could play this game.
Wouldn’t look as impressive on a vita.

I want this game really bad, but it comes out the same day at the same price as kingdom hearts 1.5 HD remix, which I have pre ordered. I really like this game and it feels like a breath of fresh air, so when I am done getting the plats in KH I would love to pick this up. Great job guys, I hope more people learn about this game.

Been a while since I have this baby pre-ordered..since 2012 Puppeteer is my most anticipated game after TLoU…september cant come soon enough….I love the amount of bosses on Puppeteer….feels like I’m back to the good old PS1 era….nowadays is hard to see a game with a ton of bosses.The art on this game is fantastic,everytime I look at it I stay amazed….I just cant wait…Puppeteer has potential to be one of the best games this gen and ever.


+ Dracont on July 26th, 2013 at 11:19 am said:

Can you plz bring a PS Vita Version of this game?


+ MKPACK on July 26th, 2013 at 11:43 am said:

This looks awesome. I want to play it on my Vita. Will remote play be enabled?


+ P_AULOr on July 26th, 2013 at 11:45 am said:

The Demo will be avaiable?

+ rjejr on July 26th, 2013 at 2:32 pm said:

Have Sony make this trailer a DL so I can watch it properly.

Really looking forward to the demo, hope it plays as good as it looks.

Where is the digital pre-order??? Please answer!

Myself and several people I know with children are all waiting. Hopefully you aren’t determining the marketing budget based solely on pre-order of physical product.


+ PrinceofXIII on July 26th, 2013 at 7:02 pm said:

love this!


+ PrimeroIncognito on July 26th, 2013 at 9:55 pm said:

Lisa, plenty of people who didn’t grow up with platformers love them after playing them. I assure you, the appeal hasn’t a thing to do with nostalgia.

plaztiksyke, marketing budget was determined way before pre-orders were active. Way before development, even. Financial matters are usually measured around the same time the conceptualization process begins. I promise.

This game is simply amazing! Played the Japanese Demo earlier this month and I could say , I would like to see both Japanese and English Voices in US release PLEASE!!!, cause the japanese voices were amazing plus the feeling of being inside of theater is very well done. The artistic aspect is great . Can’t wait to pre-order it digitally.

This game looks absolutely refreshing. I have been following it since the debut trailer. My wife and I are excited to play it. Totally has that nostalgia aspect to it.
