Astro Bot will feature “over 150 iconic cameos” inspired by PlayStation

Astro Bot will feature over 150 PlayStation-inspired cameos.

That’s according to the game’s recently revealed store listing, which states that we’ll be able to “rescue over 150 iconic VIP bots inspired by legendary characters from PlayStation’s 30-year history.”

The same listing describes Astro Bot as a “large-scale, standalone adventure that offers more than four times the worlds, 300 robots to save, and dozens of new powers and features to discover.” This also confirms that Astro Bot is strictly a single-player experience that will only be available on PS5.

Interestingly, it’s also very clear that Astro Bot doesn’t include microtransactions, assuring players that there are “lots of coins” to collect and spend in the Gatcha Lab.

Sony announced the new Astro Bot game during this week’s PlayStation State of Play. It’s simply called Astro Bot, is once again developed by Sony’s Asobi team, and will launch for PlayStation 5 on September 6. This is Astro’s first starring role since the 2020 PS5 launch title Astro’s Playroom.

“(The) Astro Bot announcement was so bittersweet for me,” Eurogamer’s Ian wrote in his fabulous feature, It’s hard to stay excited about PlayStation VR2 if even Astro Bot doesn’t carry one .

“Like everyone, I’m excited for a new Astro Bot game, they’re such joyful, heartwarming and uplifting games – and on top of that, this new game feels a bit like a StarFox x Mario Mash-up.” Can’t this be a contender for game of the year?!’ I thought as I watched the reveal. But then, as the trailer passed the minute mark without showing anything resembling VR gameplay, my heart began to completely break in two when, at the same time. At the end of the trailer, big bold words reading “COMING TO PS5” appeared. So no PSVR2 support at all?! For a character who technically only became big thanks to Astro Bot Rescue Mission on PSVR1?
