As I mentioned in early December, one of my most anticipated games from EA’s new-found mandate to provide as much boutique new IP as it relies on its hit franchises is Henry Hatsworth In The Puzzling Adventure, the forthcoming DS game designer Kyle Gray — one of the Experimental Gameplay grads that also spawned World of Goo Kyle Gabler.

While for some time we’ve known that it’ll use its dual screens to concurrently provide both a lower-screen match-3 puzzle as you take the ol’ chap Hatsworth on a platforming adventure above, just how, exactly, was somewhat of a mystery.

But EA have just published this latest trailer that explains exactly what the life of one of those monster blocks entails, and does it brilliantly in mock educational-film style: giving you all you need to know to see why it’s at the top of our DS lists.

  1. I love the manga-style robot transformation backdrop – nice touch.

    Any idea when this is due out? (Specifically in the UK) The website says early 2009, other sites disagree on sometime in March. I’m really looking forwards to it, though.

  2. anon-dude, watch the end of the video: March 17th, 2009 release date.
    This an awesome frackin’ mashup of platform and puzzle – can’t wait to get me some of that super exciting robot juice!!!
    The DS NEEDS more games like this.
