Can’t wait. Making a custom character should be cool.
Just a curious thought. I bet Nintendy would love to have the PS3s graphic ability as the screens I’ve seen would make a awesome Zelda.

This looks like the best PSN game ever. I wish it would come out already.

That was a short interview… I want more!!! D:

Aah! I wanna play it!!!

StrykerIsland said:

March 25th, 10:33 am

My most-wanted PSN game of 2009, can’t wait. I’m praying the online functionality is super sleek. Please focus on that aspect, as a poor implementation could really sour the experience.

AWESOME! Day 1 for me! :)

Elvick_ said:

I can’t wait for this game.

It looks so amazingly fun. I’ve been waiting for this game since I first heard of it. Waiting very impatiently.

It’s my most anticipated game of this year. I was hoping for an earlier release than this Summer though. Or at least a solid date. Maybe later we’ll get one.

TheHater2 said:

March 25th, 10:36 am

When is it coming out? That all we need to know. I want to feed the Princess cake :)

Delriach said:

March 25th, 10:38 am

lol, I’m looking at the twitpics. Great shirts! I want one :(

Audioboxer said:

March 25th, 10:39 am

Looking great :D

Want to hear more about this game whenever possible.

Xoonaka said:

March 25th, 10:40 am

Aw, yeah, that was the most asked question was release window. Sucks that the brass doesn’t have any sort of answer for us, but I understand I suppose.

I must say though, I like the environments, but for the most part I think the people look pretty bad… not just the models, but the animations too.

Won’t keep me from buying this game though, it’s core gameplay is just way too awesome sounding for me to pass it up. CTF + RTS… awesome combo.

Going once, going twice, SOLD!

Holy moly Jeff, you are ON POINT with all these developer interviews. Workin hard for the readers, I see. Mad props your way.

I wasn’t interested in Fat Princess before this interview (probably cause I knew nothing about it and never bothered to research it), but man now it looks as though it’s going to be killer! I’m really into games with interesting art styles (PJ Eden and Flower come to mind). In my own opinion, these are the kinds of games that really engage me in a fantastic alternate virtual reality – what games are for! Anyway, really looking forward to this now, looks incredibly unique and wildly fun.

There are a lot of great PSN games being released soon. I’m definitely getting this one.

@ #24,

Where exactly have you seen the game in motion to be able to comment on the animations?

Elvick_ said:

March 25th, 10:45 am

IGN’s preview said it would release sometime in the Summer.

Elvick_ said:

March 25th, 10:46 am

@badboodah77 – Gametrailers has a couple videos of the game. They were earlier builds I believe, but the game looks great even then.

EL_Hintern said:

March 25th, 10:46 am

They sent it in for ESBR Rating? So this means its almost complete right?

Neil said:

March 25th, 10:47 am

Wow, can’t wait for this game.

PasteyMF said:

March 25th, 10:55 am


You can see some of the animations in the video they just posted, like when they upgrade the priest building. Speaking of which, the animation is looking great compared to what we saw at E3 2008. Props to the animators & artists!

You guys are awesome for putting in a voice chat system. Good to hear that it’s working. :)

Any comment on a possible online party system? I would like to go from server to server without leaving my friends behind or having to scroll through a list of games to find where they’re playing.

wow , i cant wait to for this game , looks really fun

Marauderxt said:

I have a couple questions regarding the Worker class.

Yes the worker class is very important to upgrade the buildings and what not, but as the game goes on will the class become useless? What I mean is, eventually everything will be upgraded and after that is there anything else for the worker to do? You could say fight, but there are better classes for that.

I just see a problem where half the team mines resources and then upgrades everything then the Worker class never shows up again.

I heard one of the developers talking about playing a game with voice-chat functional. Does this mean Voice Chat is confirmed???

Honestly, not having voice-chat was the only thing doubting me from getting the game, but if its confirmed, COUNT ME IN!!!

    Jeff Rubenstein said:

    March 25th, 11:39 am

    The game has voice chat, confirmed.

Marauderxt said:

March 25th, 10:57 am

Oh and please make the voice chat Push to talk, I would like to actually hear what people are saying rather than it be a jumbled mess of 10 dif voices going at the same time.

Good interview Jeff, I was wondering if there was going to be custom sound tracks for this awsome release? Also you should add me on you PSN list if its not too crazy!

mywhitenoise said:

March 25th, 11:02 am

didn’t answer everyones most asked question: WHEN’S IT COMING OUT!? :P

Elvick_ said:

March 25th, 11:05 am

@35 – The workers can be upgraded to throw bombs. Plus, I’m sure you’ll always have to restore some of the gates to the castle when the enemy destroys them to get into the castle and steal back their fat princess.


March 25th, 11:06 am

I finally got my refurb 60gig, finally. Please release a demo of this in the store tomorrow so I can have lots of cake, pudding and all around gluttonous fun.

SPARDA said:

March 25th, 11:06 am

That looks like a ton of fun.

Just a question:
– will the game support a friend party system and matchmaking ?

Thanks for the video.

Blkant said:

March 25th, 11:09 am

Why must we continue to wait for this game!! I want it now! :(

NiavlysUS said:

March 25th, 11:10 am

From what I read/heard, the worker class gets an explosive at a certain hat upgrade, so the class can definatly join into the battle, as much as the priest primarily healing but also get that curse skill with the hat upgrade.
