About this game

Developer: SIE Japan Studio
Content Rating: Everyone10+


One dark moonlit night, a young boy named Kutaro was carried away by the maleficent Moon Bear King to a black castle where the unlucky lad was transformed into a puppet. Kutaro displeased the terrible tyrant, who devoured the boy's wooden head and cast away his body. But the headless hero was not alone, for he had discovered a very special pair of scissors to help him on his harrowing adventure to find his head, and his way home.

Puppeteer is Sony's best pure platformer on the PS3, delivering the kind of tight mechanics and pin-point controls usually only found in games starring plumbers or apes. With presentation that sets this Sony Japan Studio effort apart from everything that's come before it, it's only some overindulgent storytelling and samey boss battles that prevent this theatrical adventure from being an instant classic.

Despite a few setbacks, Puppeteer features all the entertainment and creativity I've come to expect from Japan Studio. Sony has another exclusive title it can be proud of, and while Puppeteer may not take center stage in the company's holiday lineup, fans of family-friendly adventures won't want to miss it.

With multiple acts full of robust stages, unlockable picture books, tons of collectable heads and bonus levels, it’s a substantial platformer that commands attention with unique gameplay mechanics and clever level design. While the story is too hyperactive for its own good and the narration is constantly distracting, the dialogue that’s heard can be quite charming and even hilarious at times. Another winner for JapanStudio, Puppeteer is a strong addition to Sony’s increasingly impressive stable of first-party franchises.
