Noby Noby Boy v1.1 patch is now available on the PlayStation Network. You can update your version of the game by booting it up and downloading the update. The patch fixes a number of bugs in the game and adds some new features. According to Keita Takahashi of Namco Bandai Games, “Honestly, debugging it was hard for multiplayer as it was a hotbed for bugs. So, if you run into a bug or two, please laugh that off. Since there are more silly updates aside from multiplay, I hope everyone has fun with the game as a whole.”
The PlayStation.Blog post by Takahashi also states:
So now FARTBOY is audible. As it says names of the excreted in Japanese and English in a random manner, it’s perfect for 2 to 3-year-olds to study languages. Wouldn’t it be interesting to have it encompass entire languages, like excreting with a certain button held lets it speak a German word, etc? This feature may not mean much, but I think it’ll be fun to perfect this spec.
Also, there is a hidden function in the game called SYNCHROBOY that people might not know about; it’s not even in the manual.
I expected that people would notice by now, but I feel like revealing at least a clue as no one has picked up on it yet. By holding a certain button while getting out of a house, the number of BOY increases. This can give you a multiplayer feel even during the single player mode. Please check it out!
