Sony Interactive Entertainment Japan Studio’s ASOBI! Team is working on a lovely platformer for PlayStation VR titled Astro Bot Rescue Mission, and today the house or Playstation released a batch of new screenshots as part of an E3 2018 press kit.

The game is a full-fledged 3D platfomer in VR offering several hours of gameplay, inspired by The Playroom‘s minigame Robot Rescue, and it looks really, really charming. The screenshots showcase some of the levels and of the (often giant) enemies that our little robot will have to face.

Before today, I didn’t know that it was possible to make a giant flaming octopus look cute, but apparently, it’s child’s play for the folks at ASOBI! Team.

You can check out all the screenshots below. Astro Bot Rescue Mission is coming exclusively for Playstation VR, but doesn’t have a release window yet.
