Sony Cat PS3 Party Game Being Localized

By Spencer . July 20, 2009 . 7:00am

imageDid you notice a little game called Toro to Morimori on this week’s release list? It’s a party game starring Toro, the Sony cat, and his friends.

 

Japan gets the game on Thursday and an English version is scheduled to come out next month care of Sony Computer Entertainment Hong Kong. The international release will be known as Toro! Let’s Party! Kart racing and controller shaking mini-games don’t seem language intensive, but Toro! Let’s Party! has a text heavy story mode.

 

A cat filled mini-game collection may not be your cup of tea, but this release is notable for another reason. To date, Sony Computer Entertainment Hong Kong translated every quirky first party PS3 game that wasn’t immediately picked up by SCEA into English. Their track record includes Aquanaut’s Holiday, Afrika, Demon’s Souls, and now Toro! Let’s Party!

    I’m getting this for its novelty points! And I love the Sony cat xD

    Dare I say that it doesn’t actually look half bad?

      It actually looks decent for a mid-price PS3 game. I’m sort of curious to see how they’re going to stuff a story mode into it.

    My cup o’ tea!
    I was planning on importing the original since I love those guys.., my favorite game on the PSN is theirs, so this makes me happy. Really wasn’t expecting it either. Thanks for the heads up. :]

    This looks disturbingly cute. I want it. :P

    Chance of seeing Toro & Kuro in North American Disgaea 3 if the HK localization makes it to Norther America?

      I don’t think the HK localization is going to make it overseas. SCEA hasn’t released the Toro mini-golf game even though it’s in English too.
