katamari damacy vita 02 New Screens for Katamari Damacy on Vita

Man, I was sold on the Vita back at E3 (even though I call it the Vitavitavegamin).  The fact that Namco Bandai has announced that they’ll be releasing a Katamari Damacy game for the Vita just puts the icing on the cake for me.  We’ve got some screenshots from the just-completed TGS, and if this game can capture even half of the wonder that the original PS2 title did, then someone needs to find a way to make this a launch title for the US (pending) release date.

From reading the press release, it appears that the new addition to the game will be the use of the front and back touch screens to stretch and pull the katamari to easily reach items that would normally be out of place or squeeze through gaps that you otherwise couldn’t.  It’s going to be interesting to see if the same quirky style and music makes its way over when this game hits US shores next year.
