Noby Noby Boy Coming Tomorrow on PSN

Keita Takahashi's Avatar Posted by Namco Bandai Games

I recently bought Flower on the PS Store and it’s a lot of fun. It’s the most interesting game I have ever played on the PS3. I love it.

Come to think of it, Noby Noby Boy will be released on Feb 19th, tomorrow! Well, my apologies for the delay to those who have waited the game. Matching the release date with other territories was tougher than we thought, but the good thing is that I could have some interesting experiences in the game.

With Noby Noby Boy, you can send a message to other players while playing without going to the XMB, and the received messages are displayed on the body of Boy. Checking the game spec, I sent a message requesting approval to add a friend and my request was accepted instantly, and I received a message. Below is an image of the message shown on Boy’s body.

Noby Noby Boy screenshot - PS3 message

Surprise! It says, “welcome to paradise.” It’s such a worn-out cliché, but I like it! Exchanging messages with people via online games has become nothing special, while I don’t play games much, let alone online, receiving this message really delighted me. It was even somewhat impressive because I didn’t expect it and of course it proved that the messaging function was working.

Oh, I almost forgot about the game. Yes, the concept is to stretch Boy. But with that said, there are many other ways to enjoy this game and they are totally up to you. Again, that is where the difficulty of describing the game lies. This game may let you run into something totally beyond your imagination or may not at all. You may totally hate the unexpected or you may love it as I did. I hope the players can find those unexpected elements fun. Now, let me show you a video that will help you understand the game a little better, lest you are getting more confused with the ambiguity.

This is Takahashi. Talk to you later.

I love you Keita Takahashi.

Insta-buy as soon as it goes live in Europe. Which shouldn’t be long.

Cool Video! I got lots of laughs out of that one! (In a good way!) I’ll be picking the game up first thing! It seems like a VERY random and fun game! Something that I can play with some buddies and just laugh non-stop at how stupid some of the things are that happen! (again, in a good way….) This should be a BRILLIANT addition to my PSN Game Collection! :)

pretty sure this one’s a first-day buy, although we’ll have to see what my acct. says… although, i’m sure a demo would be able to sway my opinion …

Getting this immediately when store updates.

This game scored 9/10 in Eurogamer by the way (Which incidentally rated Flower and Killzone 2 lower for whatever reason).

And when it comes out on PHYSICAL MEDIA, I will buy it.

*Follow up with a video that makes it even more ambiguous*

I love you guys.

Well I downloaded the game yesterday and erm… its still vague to me haha, but I really love it, its hilarious and beautiful and… very relaxing! Makes me wonder what’s more relaxing, Flower or Noby Noby Boy :)

Yoku dekimashita, Takahashi-san ;-)

Onna76_NL said:

February 20th, 3:54 am

Just wanted to say NOBY NOBY BOY is probably the most addictive game is history! You’ve done it again, Takahashi-san! can’t say thank you enough!

*to try to explain the game [for those still wondering]: ‘Look no further, it is here!’ TRY IT![?] this game really is ‘nobi nobi’ in its full sense lol

I really want to congratulate on your game. This will be a daily activity for some time i think its so hilarious :D and i don’t know why but thx for the game.

noize_girl said:

February 20th, 7:34 pm

OMG! I need to get this game stat! I love all your games, and was really disappointed when the last one didn’t come out on PS. It almost caused me to go over to the dark side and get an (coughs) Xbox just for that game.

Thank you for making this game.

I can’t wait to play it! ^_^

righello said:

February 20th, 7:45 pm

edit: ‘..the most addictive game *IN history!’ lol

glody said:

February 21st, 3:38 pm

Yea…this one I need a demo to make a final assumption…but im definitely not impressed so far…perhaps if this game was free, I might enjoy it…whatever the purpose of it actually is… :/

THANK YOU Keita Takahashi, thank you namco, and THANK YOU SONY for going out there and daring to support different projects like this!!! I have been gaming for 25 years and this and flower are two of the most refreshing games I have played in a LONG time. I want to thank you all involved so much, and please I am looking forward to see more diverse projects getting the green light. I will buy them, and support innovative creativeness. Keep making strokes like this, and Sony will regain its former glory that I wish to see it do.

this game is so fun! but sometimes i have to turn the volume down since the “growing/stretching” sound is a little too hard on the ear acoustics. other than that it’s a blast reporting to GIRL. i wonder if there is another Katamari Damacy in the works? ^____^

I got it from the PS Store but I still don’t “get it”. I did like the inclusion of Ballchinians.

February 25th, 5:41 pm

Ummmm do I need to be high drunk or taking special meds to understand this game? Well I can say this it is something diffrent to look forward to.
