94w ago - Namco Bandai Games Community Manager Rich Bantegui has announced that Touch My Katamari rolls onto PlayStation Vita today complete with a video trailer below!
To quote: Ladies, gentlemen, princes, and cousins - How are you enjoying the PS Vita launch today? Those of you that have been following our crew over here at Namco Bandai Games know that we're out in full force on PS Vita, and today we've set forth on an all-new adventure with The King of All Cosmos himself.
You can see what the critics are saying in the launch trailer below, but we think we want to hear what YOU have to think? Have you picked it up yet? Have you picked up EVERYTHING yet? Let us know, we want to hear from you!
You see, The King and @FilthieRich go way back to the PS2 days. It was there when I first met The King, much like many of you. We've had plenty of adventures together over the years, but we've never quite had a handheld frolic across the land of candy, crayons, robots, and cephalopods quite like this one.
Definitely not one with two analog sticks... and definitely not one that lets you stretch and squeeze the Katamari for crazy...
100w ago - Namco Bandai Games Community Manager "Filthie" Rich Bantegui has shared a new Touch My Katamari Prologue video trailer today announcing that it will be heading to PS Vita next month.
To quote: We're almost one month away from the PS Vita launch here in North America, and Namco Bandai Games is nearly ready to launch the next chapter in the Katamari saga on February 22nd in North America and Europe.
We've already been over how the new core gameplay mechanics will work: You'll stretch and squeeze your katamari using the rear touchscreen, changing the shape of your rolly ball of fun to better maneuver around each level. What we haven't yet shared is the story!
Watch the prologue video below to get a look at the terrifying revelation uncovered by the King of All Cosmos at the beginning of our stretchy tale. Once the greatest in the universe, the king finds out that his level of cool is now only on par with something he simply won't stand for... thus beginning a redemption tale for the ages!
Check the clip above and be sure to sound off in the comments. February 22nd will be here before you know it!
112w ago - Namco Bandai Games Community Manager Rich Bantegui has announced today that Touch My Katamari will be hitting PS Vita in February 2012.
To quote: The PlayStation Nation now has a final release date for when they can get their mitts on the PS Vita, and February 22nd couldn't come soon enough!
Why am I back today to steal the spotlight on the blog yet again? If you remember back during the Tokyo Game Show, I let all of you know that our team was producing a new Katamari game for the PS Vita, and I got to give you the first scoop on the news.
Well, today NAMCO BANDAI is finally ready to reveal what that Katarmari game will officially be dubbed here in the US of A... and that name is... TOUCH MY KATAMARI!
The very best part of this aside from the giggle-inducing name? TOUCH MY KATAMARI is going to be available on February 22nd, 2012, day and date of the launch of the PS Vita! The King of All Cosmos has commanded it so!
I've been checking out the latest builds of the game since TGS, and the Prince's next adventure is just as nonsensical as ever.
Fans have been dying to have an on-the-go, two-analog stick version of Katamari for ages, and TOUCH MY KATAMARI does it right. In addition to the two sticks, players can also opt to use the front touch screen...
117w ago - Today Namco Bandai Games Community Manager Rich Bantegui has revealed alongside a video trailer that Katamari Damacy is coming to PS Vita.
To quote: Many of you have been following me over the last year looking for the latest details on all of our games.
This week, you may have also been listening into what we have happening on our Facebook and Twitter for news coming out of the Tokyo Game Show for big fan-favorite series like Tekken, Soulcalibur, Ace Combat and even the upcoming action-epic, Dark Souls.
While there's plenty of news flying about for all of our biggest titles, we wanted the PlayStation community to be among the first to get the scoop on the latest entry in a series that's dear to all of our hearts, and one that features the tiniest of heroes.
Fresh from Tokyo Game Show, Namco Bandai has just announced that Katamari Damacy (working title) will be arriving soon for the PS Vita! Check out the fresh trailer above that we wanted to roll out to the fans here in North America.
You're going to have to listen your old pop the King of All Cosmos once again as he commands you to roll up anything and everything in sight!
One of the coolest new features is the ability to use the rear touch pad...
