LocoRoco 2 title thumb

This week marks the beginning of a LocoRoco celebration! With LocoRoco 2 hitting PSP’s in just a matter of a weeks, we’ve been reading a lot of great things online with awesome previews on and cool interviews with LocoRoco-creator, Kouno-san on, and to celebrate all the Loco-Love we are going to offer a ton of awesome LocoRoco Playstation store goodies, and when I say, “awesome” I mean FREE! So be sure to check out the PlayStation Store every week till launch! (Heck..we might even go past launch…who knows?)

To begin, we are kicking-off with some lovely LocoRoco-themed PSP wallpaper!

I really like to see a version of Loco Roco for PS3, not like Cocoreccho.

I can’t really see loco roco for ps3 , I mean for psp its fun when your on the go and your bored but to sit and play doesn’t sound fun.

Thanks for thinking about the consumers with free stuff, please continue your hard work to make more games for the psp. :)

Speaking of LocoRoco on the PSN, In light of the release of LocoRoco 2 for 19.99, how about reducing the price of the PSN version of LocoRoco (1) from 22.99?

I would find it a tough pill to swallow that the year old original costs more than the brand new sequal.

Already preordered LocoRoco 2!

Will you possibly drop the price of LocoRoco 1 on the PSN store? $15 and it’s mine..

LocoRoco 2 – Day 1 purchase. I’m amazed at how technically impressive the graphics and dynamics are in the PSP LocoRoco games.

How about Home stuff?

LocoRoco stuff for our apartments? LocoRocos, Mui Mui, etc

LocoRoco clothes

A LocoRoco Home Space

A LocoRoco arcade machine

    We are totally with you on that and have been discussing the possibilites internally. Don\’t be surprised if you see LocoRoco invade HOME sometime in the future.

    Keep the fingers crossed!

maxxy209 said:

Yeah seriously the price of loco roco on psn is ridiculous I was thinking of buying but then decided no because the price is way to high.

Also yay for the free stuff.

Now more download content wouldn’t mind paying 10 or 40 bucks for ps3 games.

Free themes and trailers wont make up for the lack of a freely available Demo, the needless 2 month delay and the lack of a downloadable version of the game available day and date with the UMD release.

Every time I see a locoroco I get that song (from the first level) playing in my head for hours.

Hi everyone,

It’s great to see you are all excited to see the freebies coming your way.

The team have spent a lot of time working on these, I’m sure you will like them.

LocoRoco 2 is really an enjoyable and cheerful PSP game. It is by far my favorite franchise. These items are sure to add to the experience too!

That first picture in the post sure looks like a store icon for Loco Roco 2. Will it be just for the DLC, or will the full game also be available for download on the store?

erico316ecw said:

January 29th, 9:28 pm

demo? i think making an expandtion 4 loco 2 like adding more level at a reasonable price on the psp store would be a good testing grounds for dlc/add on 4 games on the psp

One question

will this be available as a DL from the PS Store?

Midgetguy said:

January 30th, 6:45 am

I’m loving the wallpapers! I already pre-ordered my copy of Locoroco 2! (But for some reason I never recieved a code for the demo… :( )

But I’m really looking forward to seeing all of the new changes and, of course, hearing my favorite songs again! From watching a few videos on youtube I noticed that there are some “remixes” of the older songs with new parts and such… well, they sound AWESOME!!!!

(One question, is there any way that you could hook me up with a demo for Locoroco 2?)

StalkingSilence said:

@”more to come [from PSP PS Store], stay tuned!”
Will you please offer this full game as a download on the PSP PS Store within a reasonable amount of time?
I would love it!

Spyroluver88 said:

January 30th, 10:22 am

I CAN’T WAIT!!! I am already singing the yellow LocoRoco’s song in my head!
“Pocoracha Ohberne, pocoroo shickadorugy…”
Too bad I can’t spell any of this…lol

Thanks for the free stuff. I will be taking it all!! Hurry up February 10th!

Spazgadget said:

Please mark me down as another vote for making this available as a PSN download! Many users would love this method of delivery for future titles.

Very excited for LocoRoco 2 – been playing the first (that I downloaded from PSN!) for weeks getting ready for it.

(Make Resistance a downloadable title too while you’re at it!)
