Titled Noby Noby Boy, the effort sees players take control of a worm-like creature that grows by eating objects scatted around the game world. An online multiplayer mode will be included, as well as the ability to record game footage and upload it to YouTube.

No price point was mentioned in Namco's unique visual press release, but the game is expected to sell for $10 in North America, based on its pricing in Europe and Japan.
