The popular Katamari series has been dormant for quite a while. Since Touch my Katamari released on PS Vita back in 2011, fans of the series have been waiting for a new console entry in the cult-classic franchise. Fans should be pleased to note that Katamari Damacy Reroll was announced for the Nintendo Switch and Steam platforms. Katamari Damacy Reroll is a remastered version of the original game, with revamped graphics and motion controls for the Switch version.
For those unaware of what the Katamari series is about, here is the description released for Katamari Damacy Reroll –
“The King of All Cosmos has knocked out all the stars in the sky after a particularly rambunctious night of fun. Realizing his mistake, The King has tasked his young son, The Prince, to go to Earth and roll up as many things as possible to recreate the missing celestial bodies. Paper clips, books, cars, buildings, mountains, and continents, nothing is too big or small for The Prince and his adhesive Katamari ball. Katamari Damacy REROLL will feature remastered graphics and cut scenes as well as new motion controls optimized for the Nintendo Switch. Using the left and right Joy-Con controllers while the Nintendo Switch is in TV mode or Tabletop mode, players can move The Prince around with ease by simply turning their wrists.”
In Katamari Damacy Reroll, you will roll through inventive and quirky levels, gathering up progressively larger items to beat each level’s “par” size before the timer runs out. Abelina Villegas, Associate Brand Manager for BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment America Inc commented on the announcement, stating –
“Katamari Damacy is a game of pure joy. From the whimsical story, colorful graphics, cute characters, and delightful J-pop soundtrack, the game simply exudes light-hearted fun. We aim to delight returning fans of the franchise as well as those who may not have had a chance to be on the ball the first time around with Katamari Damacy Reroll.”
Katamari Damacy Reroll will release December 7th, 2018 for Nintendo Switch and PC. If you would like to learn more about the announcement, feel free to visit the official site for Bandai Namco, as well as their Facebook and Twitter.
