Katamari Damacy Reroll, a remaster of the classic Katamari Damacy which was orginally released for the PlayStation 2 in 2004, is coming to PC, and Switch (30th November for a nintendo eShop purchase) and 7th December for the physical release.
The Switch version of Katamari Damacy Reroll was revealed overnight in Nintendo’s September Direct, before it was announced for PC following the stream’s conclusion.
When the King of Cosmos accidentally destroys all the stars in the sky, he orders you, his pint-sized princely son, to put the twinkle back in the heavens above. Join the King and Prince of Cosmos on their wacky adventure to restore the stars at home or on the go
Katamari Damacy Reroll enhances the game’s look with upgraded visuals, and cut-scenes. On Nintendo Switch, the game supports HD Rumble, and motion controls. You’ll be able to control the Prince using the Joy-Cons when the Switch is in tabletop or TV mode and even play along with a friend.
If you’re unfamiliar with Katamari, the game’s premise is simple and immensely satisfying. You play as the Dashing Prince who has an adhesive Katamari ball. You roll it around to make everything it touches stick starting from small items and then larger items once your Katamari ball gets larger. Levels are cleared once you have a large enough (or larger) object around the ball by the end.
Katamari Damacy spawned several sequels and spin-offs for consoles and mobile platforms, but this will be the first time any of the games has appeared on PC. It’s a strange game with a stranger story, but its unique mechanics and whimsical art stylehas earned the series a cult following.
