Tokyo (Japan) - At a Sony press event in Tokyo, it has been reported that Sony will bring a new version of the quirky PSP title LocoRoco to the Playstation 3.

The new game will be a sequel to the PSP's LocoRoco, reports IGN, and will feature 200 LocoRoco characters in a new environment.  Sony reportedly referred to the game as "a peculiar extra chapter" to the LocoRoco story.

The game will also use the PS3's Sixaxis feature to allow for motion sensitive gameplay.  It will be available for purchase through the PS3 online store via the Playstation Network.

It is reportedly 95% complete and will make its debut in Japan.  Tentatively titled Buu Buu Cocorechho! by LocoRoco, the game has not been confirmed for a US release.
