Katamari Damacy Creator’s Nobi Nobi Boy Shown At TGS 2008

By Spencer . September 30, 2008 . 10:58am


Namco Bandai unveiled Nobi Nobi Boy, a new PlayStation 3 game from Keita Takahashi, last year and we haven’t heard about it since. It’s going to be making a public appearance at Tokyo Game Show 2008 in video form only. The other surprise on Namco Bandai’s list is a retail version of Mojipittan for the Wii. It’s unclear if this is going to be an enhanced version of the WiiWare version or if it’s a brand new game in their long running world puzzle series. Like Konami, Namco Bandai is short on announcements with their Tokyo Game Show lineup.


I’m pretty sure Namco Bandai will get the award for most diverse selection of consoles at TGS 2008 since they’re actually bringing PlayStation 2 hardware to the show. Sony Computer Entertainment Japan isn’t even doing that.


Here’s the list. Playable games marked with an asterisk.

    Yay! I want Nobi Nobi Boy. :)

  • jarrod

    Isn’t NNB a PSN title? Seems a long time coming, maybe it’s been bumped up to retail?

  • jarrod

    Also, I just noticed… no Tekken 6?

    Also noticed the We Ski sequel… I wonder if this means RR is dead, at least until PS4 launch?

  • geebee

    I don’t ever remember Nobi Nobi Boy being mentioned as a PSN title. Seems like it would be fitting, though. Either way, I’m just glad to be able to see some new footage from it.

    I don’t recall a platform for Nobi Nobi Boy either, but it’s been so long since we’ve heard anything about it I might be wrong though! Yeah, Tekken 6 isn’t on the list, but then again it’s never been confirmed by Namco Bandai it’s coming out this year either.

  • Genesis

    no Tekken 6?

    you guys are tripping!!

    majority of these were original bandai titles…

    please tell me you’re gonna update this list with more Namco originals i.e. Tekken 6
