PlayStation Move Heroes: Watch the Story Trailer!

Mike Bates's Avatar Posted by Story Lead, Nihilistic Software

Well, this is it. Your first glimpse at what happens when six iconic characters finally come together. PlayStation Move Heroes unites Ratchet, Clank, Jak, Daxter, Sly and Bentley for a new adventure. This trailer does a great job hinting at the story, I don’t want to say anything more about what’s in store for our favorite heroes!

What I will say is that working with these six characters has been really fun. Insomniac Games, Naughty Dog, and Sucker Punch have developed rich and appealing heroes. Just letting them be themselves has been the biggest goal on this project, and the most rewarding. Allowing the heroes to reveal their individual quirks alongside one another showed us just how unique and entertaining each hero really is.

We’ve even been fortunate enough to have all the original voice actors return to reprise their roles. James Arnold Taylor, David Kaye, Michael Erwin, Max Casella, Kevin Miller, and Matt Olsen have stepped right back in and brought all of the original personalities that we’ve come to know from these characters.

Adding to this incredible line-up are Roger Craig Smith and Richard Horvitz, who have breathed life into two new characters: the galactic fanboy Gleeber and his little snot of a sidekick, Lunk. One of the biggest tasks these new characters had was to hold their own next to the iconic heroes. Roger and Richard have done a fantastic job helping to create something fresh and new that could easily fit into any of the heroes’ worlds. And as you’ll hear in the game, the enemies also have a fantastic cast, bringing humor and character to every encounter of the game.

With the characters in the lead, the artists and animators at Nihilistic, VASG and Brain Zoo strived to hit the high bar of excitement and depth that you’ve come to expect from these series. Every corner of the levels and every minute of the cinematics have something going on, so don’t blink!

Being able to live with this gang of heroes has been quite a blast. We hope you’ll enjoy it too!

Wow, the story looks pretty interesting. Nice to see Jak in action on PS3. This is tempting me to buy the PlayStation Move now

Non cell-shaded Sly looks weird.

Also I was expecting Apes from Ape Escape to be here. Well, I guess I’ll wait for sequel for more SCE characters.

39 bucks is so worth it, hopefully for the sequel we get to see kratos/deimos, drake/sully, and zeke/cole mcgrath. then nathan hale/capelli, sev/rico, and snake/raiden

was that transformation and spin move daxter did a homage to crash?

    It was Dark Daxter from Jak and Daxter: The Lost Frontier.

KillerDante said:

February 9th, 11:35 am

o.0 Did I just see that? Can’t wait, thanks for this game. It will totally be worth it, maybe some dlc skins for other well known hero’s?

Kaswa101 said:

February 9th, 11:38 am

Oh no, they put Dark Daxter in the game (facepalm)… But still, this game looks awesome. Too bad I don’t own a Move. Why couldn’t they just incorperate sixaxis so that we could choose between DS3 and Move?

KazeEternal said:

February 9th, 11:44 am

Looking good. Glad I’ve kept this pre-order among the many I had to cancel. Looking forward to this game and I may end up picking up the sly collection as a result (never played any of them) so Sucker Punch owes if thats the case.

remanutd5 said:

February 9th, 11:45 am

pre ordered already , cant wait !!!!!

remanutd5 said:

February 9th, 11:47 am

I do believe Jak and Daxter will have a new game on PS3 soon. There in this game, and they were a bonus for the CE of LBP2.

Sony knows we want Jak and Daxter back! There hinting to us that hes coming!

Uriel_Itachi said:

February 9th, 12:14 pm

Not to impressed by the Story, but I’ll give it a go, just because Jak and Daxter are there… I wonder why Crash or Spyro didn’t appear… oh yeah now remember they went multi-console, what a sad fate.

BLipp17 said:

Bah Dup Bap Bap bah Im Lovin it! pre-ordered

digitalman123 said:

February 9th, 12:27 pm

ZOMG! Dark Jak returns! Now seeing the overall plot, 100% must-by for me! Seeing those guys together feels so…natural.

zekececil14 said:

February 9th, 12:29 pm

Wait, it is Move exclusive? No DS3? I have Move, but it will need a Nav controller which it is physically impossible for me to use the two at the same time. It looks like an amazing game, but NOTHING will EVER beat a DS3! (maybe DS4)

    Mike Bates's Avatar

    Cristian Cardona said:

    February 9th, 1:46 pm

    Move required (so yeah, exclusive). You can use your DS3 in place of the Nav.

Jakeman14 said:

February 9th, 12:30 pm

im getting this! love ratchet and jak games so this is a match made in heaven. so how is work on the resistance game for ngp? is it hard? easy? do you like the power of the handheld please ansewer soon!

digitalman123 said:

February 9th, 12:30 pm

FIRST annual? Cole vs. Kratos vs. Nate Drake next? Probably not…

This looks better than I thought it would. Officially interested now.

    Be sure to pre order to get your free skins!

zekececil14 said:

February 9th, 12:31 pm

What? No they didn’t! Give me your sources.

PhantomOfPanton said:

February 9th, 12:34 pm

@zekececil, Spyro has been on wii, DS, xbox, and basically every system ever invented :(

sethchilders said:

February 9th, 12:40 pm

Awesome trailer! I was a little skeptical of this at first, but I might end up buying it after seeing this.

TomHoang said:

February 9th, 12:50 pm

I just got a Navigation controller, so now I can enjoy this game to the fullest. Also, this might just be an Amazon exclusive, but you get the alternate costumes for all three characters from pre ordering there.

I have not played a Jak & Daxter game yet, but hopefully an HD collection is in the works.

darthlego said:

February 9th, 12:51 pm

Already pre-ordered. I hope it is worth it, but seeing some more of it in this trailer makes it seem more likely that it will.

Seeing this makes me miss some of the characters. We already know Sly 4 is coming, but where is Jak 4? Or the Rachet and Clank and Jak collections.

gerneric123 said:

February 9th, 12:54 pm

The suggestions for a sequel have been truly terrible. Helghast Soldiers, and Uncharted characters wouldn’t work in this set up.

You’d need characters like (the aforementioned) Ape Escape monkeys, Hot Shots characters, Parappa, Patapons, etc.

Blkant said:

February 9th, 12:57 pm

I cannot help but wonder how many people are actually aware of what nihilism is. :P

Anyways, please consider a Dan Fortesque from Medievil DLC pack. It may have been from the old PS1 days, but it is a classic and great first party title. :)

gerneric123 said:

February 9th, 12:58 pm

By the way, Dark Daxter (the form Daxter transforms into) is a form revealed in Jak & Daxter: The Lost Frontier. Given it’s included in that, I think it’s safe to say that is Jak 4.

Justp94 said:

February 9th, 12:58 pm

OMG!!!! Please tell me PlayStation Move Heroes is like a sign from the Video Game GODS that Naughty Dog is planning a new Jak & Daxter????

Baron162 said:

February 9th, 1:20 pm

Why did the bring back the abomination that is dark Daxter??? that was by far the stupidest move for the franchize.
[DELETED] Dark Daxter

JAk_HAk said:

February 9th, 1:22 pm

Exclusive to Playstation Move? That was a sly move. Now I’ll have to go and buy the wand thing, unless of course I just skip this title altogether. Watching the Let’s Play on YouTube it is…

Bummer. This looks fun.

hxczuner said:

February 9th, 1:51 pm

This just makes me want a Sony crossover fighting game like Super Smash Bros….. Since that’s unlikely, this’ll do. Looks good.

rjejr said:

February 9th, 1:57 pm

Jak and Daxter is still my favorite game ever. Jak 2 was ok, not a big fan of it turning into GTA mission based gameplay. Jak 3 I personally refer to as Jak 2 1/2 b/c it was really more of the same. Jak X I still haven’t played b/c I did’t like racers at the time. I’ve never owned a PSP so none of those either.
I loved the first Sly, the 2nd were ok.
R&C were all great except that multiplayer one.
So please let this be good.

rjejr said:

“Move required (so yeah, exclusive). You can use your DS3 in place of the Nav.”

Is the Nav or DS3 required or optional?

I actually own 4 PS3 controllers, but 2 are 3rd party and require dongles (which don’t work thru a USB hub, I tried) so with the Eye plugged in I’m down to 3 controllers plus the Move wand. Unless my wife plays Singstar then we’re down to 2 controllers and 1 Move wand. (Boy, I’m sure glad Sony took away those USB slots before Move came out.)

    Along with the PlayStation Move controller, either the PlayStation Move navigation controller or a DS 3 is required to play. For optimal gameplay, and a more streamlined experience, I recommend the Nav.

Was that Mike Erwin’s voice I just heard? It certainly sounds like him.
