September 10, 2014Written by Jason Dunning

You’ll have to wait less than a week to play Ovosonico’s PlayStation Vita-exclusive Murasaki Baby, as it’s been announced for release on September 16 in North America and September 17 in Europe. In North America, the game will cost $14.99 ($11.99 for PlayStation Plus members during the first week), while those in Europe can expect to pay £9.99.

You can check out the first of three developer diaries for Murasaki Baby above, with this one showing you the studio.

As well, Ovosonico Founder Massimo Guarini talked about how he formed the studio:

I founded the studio when I came back from Japan, about 2011. I felt it was the right time for me to risk everything and try to set up a studio. We started pitching ideas to publishers in general and one of those was Sony Computer Entertainment Europe. The funny thing is that we were pitching a completely different game.

After some months of back and forth, and flying to London and Liverpool, I happened to have in my bag this five-slide presentation with the little black and white baby that you know now, and said ‘Hey guys, what do you think about this?’ They thought the idea was cool! I flew back home and the very next morning, I received a call from the same Producer and he said, “’You know what, we want this one. We want to go with this one!’

Are you going to buy Murasaki Baby next week?
