confirmed today that Doki-Doki Universe is launching on December 10th for PS4, PS3, PS Vita video gaming platforms.
To quote: Hi there! Greg Johnson again. We here at HumaNature Studios are excited to finally announce that Doki-Doki Universe will be available next week on Tuesday, December 10th for PS4, PS3, and PS Vita. In Doki-Doki Universe you play as the adorable robot QT3 on a quest to learn about humanity with the help of Alien Jeff.
The full game, available for $14.99, includes the story mode, 31 personality quizzes, and the Doki-Doki Mail messaging system. Or if you prefer to test out the waters before diving in, you can alternatively download a free version of the game - the Starter Pack - which includes 16 personality quizzes, Doki-Doki Mail, QT3's home planet, and a tutorial planet. Doki-Doki Universe will support cross buy, so once you download the game on one system, you'll be able to download it at no additional cost on the other systems.
In the spirit of the upcoming launch, I'll be joining the PlayStation.Blog team to do a live playthrough on December 10th. Check out the official PlayStation channel on Twitch
to watch and ask questions. We'll also be giving away voucher codes for the full version of Doki-Doki Universe!
We thought we'd share a sneak peek at one of the many little stories you'll encounter as you travel around Doki-Doki Universe as QT3, and one that'll we'll also be sharing with you on the live stream next week. This story seemed especially appropriate for the holidays as it has a wintery theme, as well as a theme of love and acceptance.
This story takes place on a planet called Brrr. As QT3, you'll encounter an insecure young snowman named Junior, who is ashamed of the fact that he can't stand the cold. Junior is afraid to tell his father, as he's sure his dad would never understand.
Meanwhile, his father is worried because Junior is always getting sick, and he doesn't know why. In this scene, you help them resolve their problems by conjuring up items and helping them to communicate. As we play through this new level on the livestream, we'll show you how QT3 ultimately helps Junior and his dad.
We hope you enjoy this little preview, and we're looking forward to our big release day. Everyone at HumaNature Studios wishes you a warm holiday filled with love, acceptance, and happy snowmen.
