August 12, 2014Written by Jason Dunning

Narrowing down the release window from September 2014 to early September 2014 (meaning either September 2 or September 9), it’s been confirmed that Ovosonico’s PlayStation Vita title, Murasaki Baby, will be priced at $14.99/€9.99/£7.99.

With finishing touches being put on the game, Sony revealed that Silent Hill composer Akira Yamaoka has created an exclusive music track for Murasaki Baby. He has also partenered with Ovosonico Music Producer and Co-Founder Gianni Ricciardi to “create a truly weird and wonderful soundtrack.”

Sony Xdev Studio Europe Producer Chris Jones described exactly what Murasaki Baby is:

For those who’ve never seen Murasaki Baby before, this is a game where you lead Baby through a unique land of nightmares on the quest to find her mother. By simply holding her hand you have to solve the puzzles as you go and help her reach her goal.

Along the way you’ll encounter different characters, which you’ll need to help so that they can help you on your journey. You can see some of the new characters, such as Bunny Boy, a disco kid who’s been swallowed by a TV addicted rabbit. Pretty weird, eh? And so you have to find a way to free Bunny Boy from his nightmare so he can help you escape from yours.

The game has four different chapters which all have a unique set of moods. The player can swipe the Rear Touch of the Vita and change the mood in the game. Each mood grants the player a different ability, which affects Baby’s reality, which can be used to get through the puzzle situations.

More info, as well as interviews with the development team, will arrive closer to launch next month.
