Sony has officially unveiled a new Astro Bot game, coming exclusively to the PlayStation 5 (PS5) on September 6.

A new Astro game in 2024 has been rumored for a long time. Just last week, reliable data miner Bilbil-kun said an announcement on a new game called Astro Bot would be coming “within 15 days.”

“In this brand new game, you’ll explore over 6 galaxies and 80 levels in search of Astro’s scattered crew,” Team Asobi said studio director Nicholas Doucet. “Hold on to your dual speeder and dive into each unique planet, from lush forests, sandy beaches, hot volcanoes to surprising locations like a giant hourglass or a singing tree canopy!

“Astro can use over 15 new abilities that offer unique play styles to help him on his mission. Among the many new powers, you’ll find the Barkster, Bulldog Booster, twin-frog gloves that allow you to punch and shatter enemies, metal and glass in the air, long-range punching and swinging abilities, and a giant sponge. Allows you to absorb water from the environment, causing it to grow massive and cause massive (and slightly humid) destruction.

The new game marks the third title in the franchise from PlayStation. The first, Astro Bot Rescue Mission, was released exclusively for PS VR in 2018, while Astro’s Playroom was released in 2020 and comes pre-installed on all PlayStation 5 consoles. This new game isn’t an original VR title, but instead another platformer like Astro’s Playroom.

Along with the official announcement, a trailer was released for the game showcasing some of the gameplay and its location. The game is exclusive to PlayStation 5.
