Wednesday, 22nd August 2012 11:24 GMT By Dave Cook

Puppeteer, the new platform IP from Sony Japan Studio was unveiled at gamescom, and will throw players into a stage show world full of puppets, hulking bosses and an arts n’ crafts visual style fans of LittleBigPlanet will enjoy. PS Blog EU has interviewed the studio to tease out new info on the PS3 game.

Sony Japan Studio’s Gavin Moore explained the importance of the main character’s scissor weapon, and how it can be used to cut through the game’s cloth world, attack enemies and climb around the fabric world.

Here’s the video in full:

    This looks fantastic,

    Def one to watch. Absolutely loving the art style.

    Wasn’t there a similar game called Black knight or something Being made for PSN and XBLA by Platinum? What happened to that?

    Agree – love the way it’s put together and uses the main premise. Do we have any dates for stuff like this, Rain and Tearaway?

    @1 It’s called Black Knight Sword, it’s being developed by Grasshopper not Platinum, and there’s no release date yet. Seeing as the game was playable at both PAX Prime last year and PAX East this year, maybe we’ll hear some more about it at PAX Prime next week.

    Black Knight Sword is the second collaboration between Grasshopper and Digital Reality after Sine Mora. Grasshopper is on production duties which DR do the development. Its slated for a release sometime towards the end of this year I think. It looks fantastic.

    If this has something in common with the gunstringer game, they i will be keeping a really close eye to it,because i did enjoy a lot the gunstringer game.

    A watch of the vid should tell you it’s nothing like the Gunstringer game. This seems more of a platformer.
