Fat Princess: All Hail the Fans with Patch 1.04

Deborah Mars's Avatar Posted by Managing Producer, SCEA Santa Monica Studio

You know what? We love our fans.

We love our fans so much, that we’d like to kick off the New Year with something special just for you.

Tomorrow, January 21, we’ll be releasing Patch 1.04 which now includes a new, FREE city-themed map called Brownie Town.

We’ve also fixed an issue with the online rankings, so now the All-Time and Monthly scores for Team Deathmatch and Invasion have been swapped to post correctly.

It’s all of you who keep the Fat Princess community alive and well, and it means a lot to us. We recently saw some amazing displays of fan enthusiasm and support, and wanted to share with everyone:

You can find the rest of our crazed Fat Princess fans photos here.

A special thanks to Ashe (Blue Princess) and Diana (Pink Princess) for being such hardcore fans of Fat Princess, along with Andy Lee of Asian School Boy and Jason Nishi for taking the photos.

So hey, if you’ve done something Fat Princess-inspired and want to share, let us know and we’ll be happy to feature it on the PlayStation Blog. Just post in the comments and provide us with a link.

Oh, and before we forget: Many of you have also informed us about a warrior shield bug, and just know that we’re working to fix this as quickly as possible. It will not be in this upcoming Patch 1.04, but we’re planning to get this addressed in the next patch.

See you on the battlefield, and as always…

Cake for everyone,

The Fat Princess Team

Sounds cool, i’ll have to check it out. :)

Yay! Can’t wait to try out the new map

I was wondering guys, since this is a 32 player game have you ever thought of changing it from a P2P format to using a server? It would definitely cut down on lag.

will this map and new pork be in the psp version?

Good cause I need more incentive to play this game. It was fantastic for like a month but now everybody seems to have layed off on the online. This map actually looks really cool.

madeup6 said:

January 20th, 12:51 pm

If this could be 64 player online it would be AWESOME! Imagine if it were 256 player online LOL.

LMAO at people saying “it’s late argh”

I’m waiting for a map pack.

Titan is awesome for always listening to the community and playing with us.

Good work on the patch guys and free DLC is fantastic. I’ll defintely get in there to check it out

raxozellet said:

January 20th, 12:54 pm

@56 What do you mean “was” fantastic? This game is still great and lots of people still play it.

lukeike said:

January 20th, 1:17 pm

I’m really annoyed with the amount of computer players that are always in my online games. I don’t think I have yet had a full player filled game yet. The max amount of human players I’ve seen in my games is 6, which is dissapointing. I want to know what happened to the other characters. The pirate, king, chef, and ninja…. please say somthing about the other characters!

Spunta said:

January 20th, 1:23 pm

This is what DLC should be.

But, please, PLEASE, Titan, bring back the kick option. I’ve been every turned off by the amount of team trolls in the game since it’s removal. It makes the game less fun which is sad for an over the top, strategy game.

Shorter games would be nice, but the team trolling NEEDS to be addressed.

I know you guys released a patch for better connection to the game, but still I am getting the red snail! I am using a router to connect to my PS3 but still, every single other game Ive ever played on the PS3 has absolutely no lag online and I play a lot of online games.

I really want to play this game, Ive played it maybe 5 times in total because of this lag..

KongWen said:

January 20th, 2:26 pm

I think the session length is fine. I’m also not fussed about the teased classes, since the current ones are balanced fine. I’d prefer you focus on making the current game better rather than piling more icing on. Like…

How about fixing the warrior shield glitch?

Also, that blue princess is a hottie. But they’re both nice thin beauties.

And thanks for the new map!

    Hi KongWen,

    As Deb mentioned in the post, we are aware of the Warrior issue and working to get it fixed on another patch.

Cake for everyone.

A couple of requests:
1. Local co-op, which does opportunistic split-screen. Bionic Commando Re-armed does it, as did The Warriors on PS2/XBox.

2. Kick support. I understand this can be abused, but I think the following use case balances things: Someone can propose a kick, and if a simple majority of the live players approve the proposed kick, the kick happens.

Thanks :)

plaztiksyke said:

January 20th, 2:37 pm

Oh! And it would be great for there to be a “Fat Prince” mode where the gender roles are reversed. Multiple people have requested that feature in previous blog posts and on the forums :)

I have not played games for 3 weeks! The last thing i am playing sadly is fat princess. sry guys.

murtagh9554 said:

i hate to be a bother but is there any news on fistful of cake? i know just posted some pics of the new reaper mode but i just want to know how its coming along. thanks for your time

    Hi Murtagh9554,

    Fat Princess for the PSP is coming along very well! SuperVillain Studios has been doing a GREAT job on it. We want to make sure it\’s the best that it can be and are working hard to make sure the fans of FP will be just as happy on the PSP.

    We will be sure to have a big separate blog post on that subject when we have more news to share.

I thought the game was fun at first but the stalemates became a bit too much as you have half the team camping the princess for easy points. I love invasion but no one plays it.

could we get a game type suitable for smaller games or clans (ie 5 on 5). like a smaller 3 capture invasion maps or even a king of the hill (everyone against everyone) mode or something?

arnoldmcguire335 said:

January 20th, 4:39 pm

Thanks for the update, and the two pretty pics. Thanks guys, you just made me remind of Princess Protection Program (a Disney Channel original movie if you guys don’t know), because Demi Lovato as Princess Rosalinda kinda reminded me too much of this game, which I’m playing now.

Keep up the good work.

cobrafang said:

Great game and thank you for the even more free maps to play. 1, you need to bring back host kick ability and 2, add a server list just like Warhawk has. Not only will this give us the ability to find fuller games easier but it will make it easier for friends to play together. I feel you should bring back host abilities like kicking but with a server list to choose games you can make it like Warhawk where it gives you 2 kicks and then a ban from the server. You need to keep team balancing ON though, because without it people will just play 16 on 15 bots and 1 human for the easier wins, which isn’t much fun, frankly for either side.

Tezasaurus said:

January 20th, 5:15 pm

No party mode = not booting this game again any time soon. The poster above saying how much it sucks that you can’t play with your friends/clan on the same team is 100% correct and it’s a ridiculous flaw in a TEAM-BASED GAME.

Then again, I’m not sure how much you guys care since you already got my money. Disappointed buyer, here.

Thrill_Kill said:

January 20th, 5:32 pm

That’s awesome! Thanks for the new patch with fixes and the new free map!

pimentel2 said:

Thanks Titan. Much appreciated.

I’d like to do a quick shout-out to Titan (Well it might not be so quick):

– First, I’d love some clan support in this game, even if its simple! I’m willing to pay for it. Maybe some tags, ability to invite players onto the roster and have the ability to join a clan member even if they are not on the friendlist. Also the ability to create clan matches. People could assign clans to a team by searching it via leader then the host of the match would select the clans and assign CLAN X to Red team and CLAN Y to blue team. If there is a game in match up for a specific clan and your in that clan, you would see a button above “Jump In” that says “Join Clan Match”.

– The 2nd page of the Media page (Gallery) on the Titan Blog has a 404 error

So nice to see Fat Princess getting another update. Really enjoyed the premise of the game and can hardly wait for it to (hopefully/eventually) come out for the PSP. I’ve only had some connection problems and lag a few times, however the matches themselves are indeed enjoyable. I still find it hard to obtain trophies though…

Personally, I’d like to see updates for the character models, but that’s for the creators to decide.


January 20th, 6:15 pm

…..what am i supposed to say lol….anybody have myspace….email me at [DELETED]

ZildjianKX said:

An chance of getting all the PSP features added to the PS3 version, even as paid DLC? I really hated it when PixelJunk Monsters came out for the PSP with more content than my PS3 version and there was no way to get the content on my PS3.

Also, local co-op mode would be awesome…

Grendolai said:

January 20th, 6:44 pm

Love the game. One of the best I’ve purchase for PS3. i would LOVE it if you could add the option to play with a second player on the same console much like the Lego Star wars games handle it. Maybe even allow that online.

Spathis said:

January 20th, 8:04 pm

Dear Titan,

My suggestions for the game

-Clan system (simple 4 letter Clan Tags will do)

-I’m not a fan of matchmaking, please give us server lists like Warhawk/Killzone 2 or any other PC Game. Let us choose which servers to join. I’m not asking for dedicated servers. They can still be Peer 2 Peer like they are now. Just give me that option. Keep to the matchmatmaking/quick join for those that prefer it. Like Warhawk its an OPTION.

-Stalemates, still happens alot and needs to be addressed by Titan. Throw in a new game mechanic to spice things up and turn the tide of battle.

-Bots, they need to go or as host give me the OPTION to remove them permantly. Being a multiplater game i want to fight REAL people, not computer AI. The keyword with this suggestion is OPTION.

Ohhh, thank you for the lovely new map! <3

My boyfriend and I made Red Worker cosplays for last year's New York Anime Fest 2009:

And this is a thank you I did for Titan Studios on my deviantart account:

Just thought I'd share! Thanks for the unbelievable masterpiece of Fat Princess!

Dear Titan Studio

I want the kickout to come back again but with a twist you see if the host was on the losing side he just kick out anybody he want on the other side making the game unfair and unbalance. How about make a voting kickout like if 3 players was vote to kick out one of their team mate and the host could kick him/her out


Thrasher20 said:

When I see the name Fat Princess, I just have the song in my head from the XMB selection menu :P

bblow_up said:

January 21st, 3:49 am

Thanks for the update! You’ve brought back a lot of faith to FP players ;]

And seriously, everyone complaining about team balancing and inability to kick…I’d rather play a fair game than have ridiculous imbalances or being kicked for even sillier reasons. I love playing AGAINST friends; it’s so much more rewarding when you destroy them utterly ;] As for the trolls, well, I’m hoping for a voting system of some sort rather than just giving ultimate power to the host.

The new map looks great based on the picture. Can’t wait till the patch is out.

I hope that kick feature will be added again, sabotage is so freaking annoying. Maybe even a friendly fire-less gameplay option? I think not being able to kill each other with bombs or blow up your own doors would cut down on sabotage alot.

raxozellet said:

January 21st, 7:53 am

I wish you guys would support the faithful fans who have clans for this game with a party system or anything really

Also a lobby system, or fixing a huge number of gltiches.

crusher915 said:

January 21st, 8:59 am

so when do you estimate bringing the dlc the ninja the chef the pirate and the king. and of course maps that support those classes. after you have finished the psp version of the game?

raxozellet said:

January 21st, 9:22 am

They never promised those classes so we really shouldn’t be expecting them any time soon.

hellolilchris said:

January 21st, 2:49 pm

i’m stoked for this update! i’ve always wished that during gameplay when you pick up a hat on the battlefield, that your previous hat then drops to the ground. therefore, lets say you are a warrior and a worker breaks a castle door, you kill him, take his hat, fix it, then pick your warrior hat back up and continue playing. just a thought. =)

Kirkpad said:

January 21st, 5:13 pm

I barely play FP, but you guys are still the best devs around. The fact that you are releasing maps for free means that the community won’t be split up into people who HAVE DLC, and people who DONT HAVE DLC. This is happening for too many games (Call of Duty, Burnout Paradise etc.) and I can only applaud Titan Studios for creating attention and value by releasing free content. If anything, releasing paid content is discouraging to new buyers because many people realize that they would need to buy the game AND the DLC just in order to be apart of the community.

I just played the new map and it is CRAZY!!

I like how the outpost is situated next to the gate, and how the ore is at the centre with ‘no’ nearby outpost….AND its on shallow water. Take THAT fire mages! lol.

I just have a couple of questions:

There are a few parts on some maps where players can scale up the sides of cliffs to get to the enemy base early on, was this intended?

Also, what does the effect of burning wood have? I found some old news that said that it used to deal damage (or does it do damage?)

roketo_B said:

I play the US version of Fat Princess on my Japanese PS3 and one of my biggest complaints about the game was the fact that the X and O buttons were not tied to the console’s regional button scheme (the O button is ACCEPT in Japan while the X button is CANCEL…).

I believe the 1.04 patch fixed this (correct me if i’m wrong). I can play the game and not have to retrain my brain to navigate through the menus.


Xxtasay said:

January 22nd, 2:51 pm

The game is awesome, I’ve wasted so many hours on it. I have tons of games on my ps3, but this is the only game i play. the only thing I could ask is to include in-game music on the next patch if possible. I would greatly appreciate it.

phinnv8 said:

January 23rd, 3:57 pm

This free map is excellent. The only real problem with Fat Princess (other than lag with some hosts) is the length of the maps. Some of them just go on forever and makes me wanna stop playing the game. The should have death limits like Bad Company does, so if the round isn’t going anywhere it moves on to the next map.

littlegremlin said:

January 23rd, 8:40 pm

fat princess is one of the things I cherish on my PS3. paying on a team with friends is vital. 100% needed. The great value this game is — 2 player splitscreen is askin for too much. I’d also pay for other character as DLC. What I do want is a platinum trophy, and GLUTEUS MAXIMUS is TOO HARD! I get really really angry even trying this anymore. Thank you for making games that don’t waste millions on advertising & licences. You just made a great game that gamers love to play. I did also want to add my idea about a auto-lockon when on easy. I have a kid & wife who can’t get all the buttons at once. Peace & long live Titan!

Great game, unfortunately it is not possible to buy if you live in Brazil. What a shame.

mizuhonova said:

February 6th, 7:09 pm

To Developers: PLEASE implement the kick+ban option. I was playing a game with a saboteur and it was so annoying. Maybe you can make it so the players on the team can vote to kick+ban their team members DURING the game. Waiting until it’s over is too late and can take hours, especially if we’re still trying to save the game. Also, the host might be on the other team and be unaware/unwilling to kick+ban the saboteur.
