Astro Bot is the “biggest” gaming team ASOBI has ever made

Astro Bot is the “biggest” gaming team ASOBI has ever made

“It’s really about going up one notch — actually several notches — and getting the big Astro story,” he said. “We call it Astro Bot because we treat it as a new beginning. It’s a really big toy. I think for us this is the biggest toy we’ve ever made.”

Obviously the ASOBI team hasn’t made many games, but with its 80 levels and six worlds, it’s clear that this is going to be a much bigger experience than Astro’s Playroom, the excellent DualSense technology demo that comes pre-installed on every PS5 controller. Despite this, Doucet insisted that he would not run out of ideas: “We really wanted to make sure that the player had a refreshing experience every 10 minutes or so.”

The story revolves around a pint-sized Android DualSense spaceship that breaks up into tiny pieces that are scattered throughout the universe. Naturally, you’ll need to retrieve all the ingredients, and you’ll meet many famous faces from PlayStation and pop culture along the way, including the likes of PaRappa the Rapper and Nathan Drake.

Despite this, Doucet promised that Astro would be able to stand on his metal feet. “Primary effort has gone into making Astro special so that he can stand as a new character on PlayStation with good reputation and trust, but on top of that, there’s a whole coating of nostalgia.”
