Beautiful Katamari Damacy intro video

Namco just sent us the Beautiful Katamari Damacy intro video, and it's as crazily stupid as expected.

Very trippy, the animation look's a bit like some early stuff that Terry Gilliam did for Monty Python.. ;)

*What* is this game about? All of the pictures I've seen of it is just crazy looking..some of these Japanese games just confuse me..

Raz0rEdgeI - it's one of the best games coming this year.

The idea is simple - you roll a ball and everything smaller than the ball sticks to it so it gets bigger and bigger. You start running from mice and end collecting islands and continents.

You have to try it:P

And crazy music just adds to the experience.

Unfortunately I'm not sure the music will be as good as the previous games, it seems like there will be a lot of jpop trash :/

need ... more... drugs ... need more...
boy that is some crazy shit. Definately something the 360 doesn't have yet
anyone else noticed it was 11.something fps? Is that correct or something with the new equipment?

That's what Namco sent us. The file is definitely fucked up, it was a total bitch to reencode to mp4 and avi, first time I ever saw such a badly encoded file.

looks pretty tame/boring compared to the other katamari-intros.

Mm, everyone keeps saying this Katamari will be in some ways (music, design etc) worse than the ones before. Kind of makes me feel like it's not even worth trying it out since I've missed the originals.

Different development team on this one?

About the game


What's up?

    Moonwalker @KORNdog: it's a shame though. 360 had a lot of these games but they are all gone now. I guess they don't only not sell on Japan, neither in the West too. (32 minutes ago)

    KORNdog @Moonwalker: unless he takes a few truck loads of cash with him...no. (1 Hour ago)

    Moonwalker I wonder if Phil Spencer's visit to Japan is going to change anything. (1 Hour ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker However of all recent Japanese games, I'd say Nier would actually sell decently on it. Of course not in Japan but I bet quite a few people in the West would buy it. I would. (1 Hour ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @asdfg: Not necessarily talking about here only but in general. I think we all know that most Japanese games sadly don't sell on Xbox. (1 Hour ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @nostradamus: Oh it sure is fun. Combat feels really nice, especially when you get to do the executions. The thing is, there is a shit load of combat and it can get repetitive. How much does it cost? (1 Hour ago)
