Limbo rated for PS3

Korean ratings board suggests monochromatic Summer of Arcade platformer making the jump to Sony’s console.

Last year’s Xbox Live Summer of Arcade standout Limbo might be headed for a new destination, as Game Set Watch has spotted a Korean Game Rating Board listing for Danish developer Playdead’s debut downloadable game on the PlayStation 3.

Chances are the grass is no greener on the other platform.

A 2D platformer, Limbo put players in the shoes of a small child who must find his way through a black-and-white world filled with puzzles and dangerous, often deadly obstacles. The game won critical acclaim upon release, which was followed by a small avalanche of award nominations that yielded multiple Interactive Achievement Awards and a Game Developers Choice Award.

This would not be the first time a Summer of Arcade hit’s PS3 migration has been leaked by a foreign ratings board. The German rating body Unterhaltungssoftware Selbstkontrolle (USK) leaked word of Braid’s PS3 port in August of 2009. The time-manipulating 2D platformer launched on Sony’s downloadable service three months later.
