Okabu's 'toybox world' opening on PSN in 2011

Developer HandCircus is best known for its work on Rolando, the heavily LocoRoco-inspired iOS platforming series. Whereas Rolando was criticized for borrowing a bit too much from Sony's PSP franchise, the studio's first console effort is an entirely original affair -- and will arrive exclusively on Sony's system via the PlayStation Network.

Okabu is described as a "hyper-tactile toybox world filled with a huge number of puzzles, playthings, adorable creatures and devious machines." You and a friend can team up in the co-op campaign, utilizing all sorts of animals as tools. Not making much sense? Perhaps the debut trailer will clear things up.
