Season’s greetings from Japan.

2013 has been a very busy year for Japan Studio. We launched four titles this year, including my own Puppeteer. So we’re all looking forward to a few well-deserved days off. Although you might be surprised to hear that, here in Japan, we don’t get Christmas off. The 25th of December is just a normal working day.

Fred Dutton's Avatar + Posted by Fred Dutton on Oct 04, 2013


All games are the product of individual creators, and while it’s occasionally hard to see it, all are duly imbued with the personalities of the artists that first breathed life into them. As anyone who’s played it will surely know, this is no more true than it is with PS3 platformer Puppeteer. Japan Studio’s sublime adventure drips with charisma, character and, above all, passion.

Puppeteer Out Today, Launch Trailer Unveiled

Gavin Moore's Avatar + Posted by Gavin Moore on Sep 10, 2013

Hi everyone. At last, after more than three years of hard work, we finally get to launch Puppeteer today for PS3. It’s a true labor of love, and we can’t wait to see what you all think of it. Take a look at the launch trailer for a taste of what’s to come. When I started with Puppeteer, the idea was to take a lot of inspiration from Japanese culture and mash it up into a crazy game. I really like that old look, but I’m glad we decided, as a team, to move the art direction to where we are now.

Puppeteer Takes Over San Francisco

David Bull's Avatar + Posted by David Bull on Sep 06, 2013

Last night we brought the dark and magical theatre of Puppeteer to the streets of San Francisco. What an event! We had a great crowd joining us to see the bizarre and wondrous world of Puppeteer. Volunteers from the crowd jumped on stage to put their own spin on Kutaro’s adventure. We saw Kutaro donning multiple puppet heads and taking on General Rat and General Dog from the Moon Bear King’s army.
