Here Is A Somewhat Confusing Noby Noby Boy Video

Looks awesome? I can't tell anymore.

Namco Bandai dropped this video of Noby Noby Boy onto Youtube yesterday.


I still don't know what the hell is going on here. All I know is that the game is out next week and I'm going to exchange some of my hard-earned American dollars for a chance to figure out what it all means.

It looks like a snake trying to sexually assault a fiesty, spinning, giant grenade.

Finally the tentacle porn video game I've always wanted!

This game looks trippin. Only the Japanese would make a game like this, they have a really weird style over there man...really weird. Girls dress up like "hello, kitty" for fun..not for Halloween, but they just wear them as casual clothes. Its CRAAAAZZZYYY. But they probably think the same about us.

I'm glad that he's finally doing something new, far away from Katamari (which has been run/rolled into the ground at this point) and NobyNoby looks like just as much fun . The mouth on the end of those tentacle things near the end, classic "WAHWAHWAH" :D

@destruktive: "wtf?"

That's exactly what I was thinking.

I just read the headline again, the word "Somewhat" should be replaced with a more fitting word like "Universe-implodingly".

Shouldve done a barrell roll

Did I just witness Noby sex?

What? It's just, huh? I--what? Wh-what the hell is going on in this video? I feel a deep need to know, but I have no PS3 sadly so I guess I won't know for a long time.

Oooh.... Shiny bright colours!

Posted by agentboolen

That is the weirdest thing...  Very abstract, I just hope it makes sense when the PS3 players are playing it.

that's an awful video. The game made much more sense on the 1up show when they were showing it a while back.

i have no idea what just happened. all i know is that it makes me laugh and its making a huge hole made by the sharp drill of curiosity into my conscious

Edited by Phished0ne

Snapsticle is right, 1-up covered this game pretty well on one of their now-defunked podcasts, the objective is to make "Boy" as long as possible and your score is added to a total score of everyone, once everyone hits a certain amount, the next level will be unlocked(if i remember correctly), I am assuming the final goal will be to reach "Girl" who is on the moon. possibly even going beyond?   But from their impressions at 1-up the game works better as a toy-box, doing things like snaking  Boy in and out of houses and eating people,  and then pooping them out the other end, if you so wish.

of all the videos namco could release...just....what the fuck just happened.

My brain hurts ?!?

Posted by Karmann

WTF!? reminds me of katamari.

Why would I want to play Nobi Nobi Boy? Why would i want to play a game based on my everyday real life?

Posted by lordofultima

Makes sense to me, dude obviously was walking home from work and then NOBY NOBY.

Posted by twosided

So, the Boy is a symbol of man's desire for peaceful coexistence with his fellow man, and the rotating device symbolizes man's desire to be weathy and secure.  The two forces, seemingly unopposed at first, are in fact locked in a closely matched struggle, whereby neither entity makes any progress. 

The cars are just cars.

This made me laugh. Did anyone else like, laugh out loud?

Posted by Giant_Squid

Its obviously a multi-colored penis.

Posted by NinjaSquirrel

i think this game looks really dumb. Maybe I just don't get it but... gosh...

Posted by themaster408

He's trying to get around the big dude spinning.  It's hard to do, because the big dude is spinning...

If the boy stretches enough to go around the big dude enough...then...umm...a winner is you!
