LocoRoco PS3 not a game

But a screensaver in disguise!

Sony has revealed that LocoRoco Cocoreccho! on PS3 won't be a game, but an interactive screensaver with which you can interact. Interactively.

Once you've sat looking at your telly for long enough the experience will begin, putting you in control of a little butterfly who has to wake the singing LocoRoco up. When they do, you'll have to guide them around the level, tilting branches and other platforms using the motion-sensing Sixaxis controller.

Along the way, you'll bump into one of the three mini-games that reward you with more LocoRoco, but you'll also come across threats like the hungry Moja who will gobble you right up. If you lose too many of your blobs, the big boss BonMuncha will wake up. Uh-oh. If you see him its interactive screensaver over.

All in all there will be 200 LocoRoco to roll around, all drawn in lovely 1080p style, plus online rankings for you to compete for.

But unfortunately there's no word on a date or price yet, although Sony has said it will definitely be this year and won't be free.

Sing your way over to our LocoRoco Cocoreccho! gallery for the first screenshots.
