Wattam PS4: From Katamari Damacy Creator Keita Takahashi

50°
2w ago - Funomena Co-founder Robin Hunicke officially introduced Wattam PS4 from Katamari Damacy Creator Keita Takahashi today alongside a PlayStation 4 video trailer below.

To quote: Hi! This is Keita and Robin here to share with you this first glimpse of our new project at Funomena. When we told people that we had begun to collaborate on a new game, they were very curious about what it could be. It is called "Wattam".

The idea for this game came from when Keita was playing with his two-year old son, and wondered about what if all toys lived, and connected by themselves? It would be such a fun world to explore and play with!

The word "Wattam" itself is actually composed of the Tamil and Japanese words for "making a circle" or "making a loop". The initial prototype for this game was made by Keita and his friend Vikram, who are from these two cultures respectively, and this new word acknowledges one of the game's core inspirations: making connections between different types of things.





But what you'll see here today is actually about a square-shaped person. It is a sneak peek into the life of the Mayor of the world of Wattam. We hope you enjoy meeting him, and the other characters of Wattam, as we reveal...

147w 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 [Register or Login to view links] 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 [Register or Login to view links] 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...

153w 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!

165w 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...
