LocoRoco Cocoreccho dated for Europe

Sony Computer Entertainment Europe has confirmed that the spin-off to roll-em-around LocoRoco will be available on the European PSN Store next week.

“LocoRoco Cocoreccho!” will be available from the store on 20th September for approximately GBP 1.99 (Roughly USD 4). This neatly happens to coincides with the beginning of the Tokyo Games Show.

The reason the game is so cheap is because it is billed as an ‘interactive screensaver’, having limited functionality restricted to moving a Butterfly that the LocoRoco will follow to a level goal, hampered by mini-games along the way which can be used to multiply your LocoRoco.

Although Sixaxis controls were rumoured, the game is based entirely on the analogue stick. Maybe they’re saving such functionality for a full-fledged PS3 LocoRoco game? Only time will tell.

Stay tuned.
