About Papo & Yo
Papo & Yo tells the story of a young boy named Quico and his brutish, mostly-friendly pal named Monster, whose most threatening feature is not his set of razor-sharp teeth, but his addiction to poisonous frogs. After devouring one, Monster flies into a violent rampage from which no one, not even Quico, is safe. As Quico, players must navigate a magical, imaginative world to save their beastly companion from the biggest danger of all: himself. Papo & Yo was released on PlayStation®Network (PSN) in August 2012, with releases on additional platforms planned for later dates.
