A surprise announcement from tonight’s Nintendo Direct, Bandai Namco has announced that its unique game Katamari Damcy Reroll will head to the Nintendo Switch and PC on December 7. The remake of the PlayStation 2 game will be the first entry in the series to head to a Nintendo platform, and will have updated graphics as well as Joy-Con controls for the Switch version.
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.
“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.” said Abelina Villegas, Associate Brand Manager for BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment America Inc. “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.”
