Gameplay of Beautiful Katamary Damacy

Namco released this 5 minutes long gameplay video of Beautiful Katamary Damacy. It certainly doesn't look that much different from the PS2 episodes, but who cares?

Have you played the PS2 games? Such a massive amount of silly fun. In HD and with proper 5.1 sound it should be awesome.

I don't get why they would make this game XBLA. I'll buy it at a normal retail price - it's one of the best games coming to X360 this year.

nope, that is basically it.. but there's a silly story and silly characters also. You can't go wrong. The first one was a truly great and classic game.

Since the PS2 version were budget titles, will this be too?

I absolutely love this game. Some guy I met bought me the japanese original Katamary Damacy for me. I didn´t even have to pay him.. :)

If you experienced the first one and don´t like it, you are dull and all grown up.

Can somebody please explain what the eff is going on in this game? Cheers

Explanation:

You push a ball around ( a katamari) and stuff sticks to it. The bigger the ball gets, the bigger things you can stick to it. Each round you have a set time to get you ball to a vertain size, get to the target and the king of the universe turns the katamari into a star (becasue they all got lost).

Sounds really basic, but the first games are some of the accessible fun you can get one a console, great humor, really catchy tunes, easy to pick up controls and really addictive.

Don't knock it until you have tried it.

About the game

    Tiz @GriftGFX: That'd be interesting if it turns out like that. It already has a more definitive hook than NMS because there's confirmed multiplayer. (49 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX There's literally nothing out there to make me expect anything more. (1 Hour ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I just expect a sorta No Man's Sky scenario where there's a sandbox and no hook. (1 Hour ago)
  • Tinks
    Tinks it's probably gonna be a dumbed down simplistic game for kids. But that's just my guess (1 Hour ago)

    Tiz Not sure if you have to sign up though. But info is probably going to continue being like this until they lift the lid off completely, basically at E3. (3 Hours ago)
