Tokobot ships for PSP

Quirky Tecmo game on way to stores; combines platforming, action, and puzzle-solving. Oh, and cute robots.

Tecmo is hoping that gamers will go cuckoo for Tokobots, the titular stars of the company's newest PSP game. Tokobot shipped to retailers today, and will be available to the public this week.

The game stars Bolt, a young agent under the tutelage of scientist extraordinaire Dr. Canewood. Bolt explores the world of Moritari and discovers some advanced technology in the ruins of ancient civilizations. The most notable product of the tech are the Tokobots, friendly and obedient steam-powered robots.

The Tokobots will help Bolt overcome obstacles and enemies by using their unique abilities to take up various formations, turning themselves into bridges, ladders, and even a larger robot a la Voltron. Tecmo promises several gameplay modes in addition to the story mode.

Tokobot is rated E for Everyone and retails for $29.99. For more info on the game, check out GameSpot's recent preview.

This game better come out in Europe, I've heard nothing regarding it on any EU sites :( And I'm getting mighty tired of having to import nearly every game for the PSP -.-; GS start getting some EU release dates like you promised 2 YEARS AGO!!!

I have been waiting for this game for so long. As of now, it got a really good review from gamepro.com with a 4.5 out of 5 rating (90%, A, etc.). And plus, since this game is a lot cheaper than a normal PSP game, it would be more incentive to purchase it. I can't wait till our Gamestop gets it in. Hooray for a unique PSP game!

yeah it'd be nice if gamespot would post some useful and new reviews for the psp. it has been taking everyone everywhere forever to get any reviews on the new games. instead everyone's focusing on news about the 360 and trying to work around this piece of sh** new graphics layout they have going for the site. stop fooling around with the site layouts and start putting up some reviews! and hopefully on time!

I really want this game to be good because of the fact that it is so unique and different from the rest of the ports on the psp. If the review is high i am definitely goin to get this game.
