Astro’s Playroom developer Team Asobi launched its official website after PlayStation Studios Japan Studio was “reorganized” into the new developer earlier this year. While Sony Interactive Entertainment’s statement at the time said that refocusing on Team Asobi would allow “the team to focus on a single vision and take advantage of the popularity of Astro’s Playroom,” the new developer website now mocks that he is “difficult at work” developing his “most ambitious game yet”. It remains to be seen exactly what it could be.
“We are a dynamic new PlayStation Studio based in vibrant Tokyo, Japan,” reads in part on the official About Us page of the ASOBI team. “We create high-quality games for gamers of all ages on PlayStation. Our latest work is the acclaimed ASTRO BOT: Rescue Mission for Playstation VR and ASTRO’s PLAYROOM for PlayStation 5. We are currently hard at work on our most ambitious game yet. ! “
Overall, it looks like the Asobi team is preparing in a big way. “Following the launch of Astro’s Playroom for PlayStation 5, Team Asobi is now spreading its wings and growing!” Said Nicolas Doucet, Studio Director and Creative Director of Team Asobi, in June. “This is a very exciting time for the team, and we are looking forward to the next chapter. We wanted to take this opportunity to thank all of you PlayStation fans for your kind words of support throughout the years, especially since Astro made its grand debut on PlayStation 5 alongside the DualSense wireless controller. “
Team Asobi’s latest title, Astro’s Playroom, is currently available for PlayStation 5. As noted above, the developer is working on a new, undisclosed title. The PlayStation 5 itself is now available with the version containing a disc drive that costs $ 499, while the all-digital console costs $ 399, assuming you can find any of them in stock at one of the various retailers who seem to add more randomly. every so often.
