Sony Invites You To Try The Puppeteer Before The PS3 Game Comes Out

By Spencer . June 24, 2013 . 8:27am

puppSony Computer Entertainment Japan has been developing a platformer game based on bunraku or Japanese puppet plays called Puppeteer. I played Puppeteer back at E3 and flew through a mine cart level that was about as difficult as something in Donkey Kong Country.


You can try Puppeteer this Thursday by downloading Puppeteer Rehearsal Version from Japan’s PlayStation Store. This download will introduce players to the world of Puppeteer and let them try out the core gameplay where you cut a path using a giant pair of scissors.


Puppeteer will be available on PlayStation 3 this  September.

    that isnt fair. Why not US or European PS3s also?

      you can always get a JP account and try it

      • Cameron Ward

        I know, but its a tad tedious to get a JP account set up and having to go through the Japanese text. to play this demo…they should have just made a universal version made for every kind of PS3 owner

          Dude, it takes 2 minutes to make a JPN account. And I really doubt this game is going to be complicated/require the tutorial to play.

            i mean just going through the menus of the PSN store is going to be tedious >_<

          • TaintedSeraph

  • Solomon_Kano

  • Bablo Smith

    Just can’t help but notice how much his pose on the cover is in many ways similar to Cloud’s stance in many FF games

  • HassanJamal

    Could someone post a guide on how to get there. I just got my JPN account and i dont understand anything.
