LocoRoco plushies in the wild, not for you

If there was one thing in this world begging to be made into a plushie its the LocoRoco from LocoRoco. They're round, they already look like they're soft and cuddly (or squishy) and they're officially the cutest things on the...

LocoRoco Midnight Holiday Pack released, also wallpaper

Sony has released a new level pack to keep LocoRoco fans occupied when the family gathers this holiday. There's always that situation where the family discussion goes south, and you want no part of it. I've seen it a few time...

It's that song. I don't know if you know, but the main theme song from the original LocoRoco was so damn infectious I had to download it immediately. Then I found out it was sung by some little kid, and then I felt creepy. Children's music is usually like that.

So I have to say I have a funny relationship with LocoRoco. See, it's so saccharine and cute that I feel “off” after a just a few hours of play. Things might be different with the latest LocoRoco to come out, the PlayStation Network-exclusive, PlayStation Portable-only LocoRoco : Midnight Carnival. There's some new features in this not quite sequel that made me, yes, pretty damn stoked to play some more. And no creepy children songs were there to get in my head.

Follow the jump for my hands-on with LocoRoco: Midnight Carvival.

Destructoid review: LocoRoco 2 photo
Destructoid review: LocoRoco 2
by Brad Nicholson

The original LocoRoco put you in the middle of an invasion. The ink-blotted Mojas upon the limbless LocoRoco’s world in an attempt to enslave the bright blue BuiBui. You’re job was to repel the invasion by defeating its snarling leader. If you stuck with the original title for a little more than seven hours, you managed to defeat the big man and deliver the planet from evil.

War. War never changes.

Sony’s second installment of LocoRoco (hits retailers on February 10) pits the smiling, happy-go-lucky LocoRoco against the Mojas yet again. This time, the big evil man has a few aces up his sleeve. He has come into possession of a song that takes drains the world of color and has been palling around with a bright red race of little dudes called the MuiMui that can drive rocket ships and drop bombs.

Do you have what it takes to defeat the Mojas? Probably. It only takes about six hours. Hit the break for the review of Sony’s PlayStation Portable title, LocoRoco 2.

LocoRoco 2 will be good and cheap, only $19.99 photo
LocoRoco 2 will be good and cheap, only $19.99
by Nick Chester

Following in the footsteps of Patapon, LocoRoco 2 will carry an MSRP of $19.99 when the game hits retail on February 10. This is good news for pretty much everyone, including Loco Roco fans and cheap asses. 

Sony has also announced that pre-ordering the game at GameStop or Amazon will get you access to an early demo of the game. Pre-order customers will get a voucher code that can be redeemed on the PlayStation Network for the demo, which will be released a few weeks before the game hits shelves. If you don't have an Internet connection, you're screwed, of course. (And how are you reading this?)

LocoRoco 2 is technically the third game in the series, following up last year's interactive screensaver game thing on PlayStation Network, LocoRoco Cocoreccho. We assume there will be more to do in LocoRoco 2, even if it is just $19.99.
