Coming to PSN this Week: LocoRoco Midnight Carnival

4 59

Hellllloooo PlayStation Bloggers!

    Have you all decided on your Halloween costumes yet?
    Have you stocked up on candy for the Trick or Treating kids in the neighborhood?
    Have you charged your wallets up in preparation for LocoRoco Midnight Carnival for PSP, available this Thursday on PSN for $14.99?

Well, thankfully you have a few more days to get ready! In this week’s blog post, we’d like to share a little more on the features, specifically multiplayer!

For the first time in Loco history, you can now race friends through levels! Via Ad Hoc, connect with up to four players and see who can get to the end first. Each player controls their own tilt and bounce action, but you can see their position on your screen so you know when you are neck and neck. To show you how this works, I challenged Kumi, my LocoRoco partner-in-crime here, to a race and we recorded it.

Many of you regular readers may recall a blog post for LocoRoco 2 when we first introduced Ad Hoc competition LocoRoco Minigame called LocoRider. Kumi and I played head to head and she ended up beating me. So this is our rematch!

(She is the pink LocoRoco on the screen, and you will see my yellow avatar, which will indicate my position on the map.)

Well folks, I have good news! (for me at least)

  • I can’t get it on November because I already decided what 2 games I’m going to get and they both from SCEA, one of my favorite publishers, so I might get this on Christmas.

    • Thanks!

      Don\’t worry, we aren\’t going anywhere.
      Just make sure to make note of this somewhere, and come back when your pockets/wallet is healthier :-)

  • I love the music in this one. But at that, I also love the original Loco Roco music. Is there custom soundtrack support so that I can play my favourite Loco Roco songs in Midnight Carnival?

  • WOW Tsubasa

    Great work replying to comments, my friend. Good to see someone as dedicated to the community as you are!

    Much respect!

    • Thank you!

      I\’m just trying to make the best of the opportunities that are made available to me.

      It\’s great to get on here and interact with all of you!

      Happy LocoRoco!

  • Thanks for replying… One more question, are you going to release the soundtrack onto the Playstation Store? The trailer music is amazing, I love swing/jazzy tunes and this is just right for me.

    I’m also a game developer too, and out of all the games I’ve played for PSP, Loco Roco is the most original.

    So like others have said, props to making the cutest game EVER.

    • There goes my secret idea… :-)

      I\’ll see what we can do.
      Not sure if it can be done, but would be nice!

      Thank you too, for your support!


  • wow you have replied to everyone post. talking about putting in the time to recognize your community.

    great game. i still need to purchase LOCO ROCO 2. love the 1st one, with all the quality games Sony has been giving us this last year, i am sad to say i had to let that one slide until a later date.

    • Thank you, I try my best to reply to as many comments as possible.

      We appreciate your support and hope you will enjoy both LocoRoco 2 and LocoRoco Midnight Carnival!

  • automatic buy!
    man it’s been a really good October!
    Ratchet & Clank 5
    Loco Roco 3

    • Thank you!!!

      Small correction..
      LocoRoco Midnight Carnival.

      It\’s technically not a sequel to LocoRoco 2, hence the different title name.

      I\’m sure you\’ll enjoy the experience regardless!

  • Thank you so much for replying and replying to everyone.. seriously everyone need to be like you and reply to as many community comments as possible.. thank you once more

    i was wondering tho dose the original locoroco on ps3 have trophy support? i never bought the game on ps3 tho i bought every single loco game on psp.

    Thanks once more and have a nice day :)

    • Hi there!

      Sorry for the late reply, and thank you for your interests.

      Unfortunately, the current version of LocoRoco Cocoreccho on PS3 was released before trophy support was enabled.

      We are a small team and have had to focus on other products (LocoRoco 2, LocoRoco Midnight Carnival) since then.

      I don\’t know what we can do, but your request is certainly noted.

      Thank you, and I hope you try out the new LocoRoco Midnight Carnival coming out this week!

  • Tsubasa, hope you still can read this…

    I see a lot of PS3 LocoRoco requests in here, I for one would love to have it. I think it would be perfect to have the sixaxis used to tilt the screen, or using the PS “wand” to control the game, maybe kind of like a pointer as was shown in TGS with LittleBigPlanet.

    Anyways, a PS3 LocoRoco would be great, maybe even in 3D? (2.5D plane with everything made in 3D)..

    I am a big fan of LocoRoco, too bad I only have played the frist one.

    • Once again, we appreciate everyone\’s enthusiasm here.

      Sounds like LocoRoco for PS3 is the biggest request right now. I will make sure to communicate the requests (have been already) to see what we can do.

      In the meantime, please try LocoRoco 2 or LocoRoco Midnight Carnival. I am sure you will enjoy them!

  • I LOL when I saw a reply to EVERY comment :P

  • The Digital Distribution pricing structure is still wrong.

    You can make all the excuses you want, You wont generate more revenue at $15 then you will at $10, period.

    You’re not going to earn much money over the long term if you never drop the price of the game either.

    Sirens been on sale for $30 for a week what twice in 2 years? That’s nonsense.

    Most other games have been on sale only once or never and I dont think anythings been reduced in price(apart from Greatest hits games like Warhawk).

    Once again Smarten up, Sometimes I think Sony makes bad decisions on purpose.

  • Maitta! *More to do things list: order new memory pro duo sticks*

    Mine is as good as full, don’t know how much MB the game requires, but sure need a new stick for my PSP. Hate to remove games :-(

  • Wow ^^! That looks amazing XD! I’m so glad I’ve been saving up for it. It’s absolutely perfect for Halloween.

    I really, really loved Loco Roco and Loco Roco 2. The Loco Roco are the cutest things ever and the games are among the most creative I’ve ever played.

  • Yeehaar! More roly-poly LocoRoco gaming goodness (at long last) and hopefully some new tunes to hum along too and generally bug my wife with (I think she now regrets buying me 1&2 for Christmas last year). Bring on the PS3 version!
