Sony debuted a handful of new PlayStation 3 titles at its Gamescom press briefing today, two of which hail from the company's Japan Studio. Rain (working title) and Puppeteer both carry some artsy-game chops, but in radically different directions.
A short teaser of Rain appeared like a quiet ghost story, with the titular weather pattern exposing a little boy who is otherwise invisible to the naked eye. It will be available on the PlayStation Network.
Puppeteer was a platformer with a found object art style reminiscent of the LittleBigPlanet series, in which the hero stole a pair of magic scissors and upset the land's evil ruler. Release windows weren't mentioned for either game, but Sony promised more details in the coming months.
