Despite some initial confusion about when the adorable PlayStation 4 multiplayer puzzler would be made available, publisher 505 Games seems to have finally nailed down a November 26th release date, coinciding not too long after the PS4’s release. For many buyers who haven’t pre-ordered a PS4 (including myself, sadly), you may not even have a console until Tiny Brains is out anyways. I suppose that’s a silver lining, if you like looking at the bright side of stuff.
Tiny Brains looks like a lighthearted and goofy multiplayer romp – it does feature superpowered rodents, after all. The game is definitely aware of the ridiculousness of its premise, too. So much so, in fact, that according to the co-founder of Spearhead Games, the in-game narrator will “sometimes make fun of the [game’s] mechanics; he knows how silly it is.” A good sense of humor never hurts a game’s chances.
Tiny Brains will also see a release on other platforms, and according to 505 those are on track for a release in “early December.” Clearly they want us playing the PS4 version, but it’s good to know non-early adopters can wait it out and still experience the game if they so desire.
For more info on Tiny Brains, there’s a meaty post on the PlayStation Blog you can check out, or just watch the delightful teaser trailer linked below.
