LocoRoco Midnight Carnival is the last game in the LocoRoco series for the PlayStation Portable that was released on October 29, 2009 for Halloween as a PlayStation Network exclusive. The game is a spin-off that continues the story of LocoRoco 2 and features a new move called "Boing!". This was released for Halloween.

In PlayStation Home, an apartment space has been released based on LocoRoco on November 19, 2009 in the Japanese version of Home. The apartment space is called "Loco Island" and features different LocoRocos on the island and a shop where users can purchase different LocoRoco themed virtual items. There's also a video screen advertising LocoRoco.[2] This space was released to the Asian version on December 3, 2009.

Plot[edit]

LocoRoco Midnight Carnival is based on a secret carnival-like base, created by the BuiBui, a red, mischievous version of the MuiMui. The title shows that the LocoRoco were quietly sleeping, while in the background, a BuiBui pulls on a nearby star (cleverly designed to just look like a star), opening a trapdoor under the LocoRoco, sending them into a chute, taking them into a cannon, which shows the LocoRoco "Boing!" power. The cannon sends the LocoRoco into the BuiBui's secret base, the midnight carnival.
