Release Date Revealed for Noby Noby Boy
Namco Bandai has revealed the release date for the upcoming PSN title, Noby Noby Boy. It will be out in Japan in Korea on January 29th, followed by a European release date later on. Why should you care? Because this is the new game from Keita Takahashi, the man behind Katamari Damacy, so it’s practically guaranteed it will be a unique experience. Why shouldn’t you care? Because it’s not exactly a “game” so to speak. It’s more of a 3D program where you stretch a little boy-like thing around and have it interact with stuff. There aren’t really any objectives other than “see what you can make it do.” Luckily though, someone at Namco Bandai seems to recognize how that might turn off some consumers, so it’s priced at the affordable 800 yen (about $9).
Still, it might have been nice to have a few objectives. Maybe Noby Noby Boy could have been a secret government project to develop the ultimate assassin. So he’s really a crazed killing machine that uses his stretching powers to strangle people, and of course please the ladies. Just saying.
