Only ever played these games briefly so I think with it now on Switch I'll give it a proper go, anyone else up for this?

Katamari has always appealed to me, in that it's one of those weird and lovable games that I suspect NGamer magazine (god rest its soul) would have been all over had it ever come to a Nintendo console. So assuming Reroll doesn't cost one million pounds, I'll probably buy it!

I actually posted 2 or 3 weeks ago when I finished the game on VITA a switch port would make so much sense.

Mas wasn't wrong. This is one of the games I've always looked at in envy from my Nintendonly position, so time permitting I'll surely be picking it up.

I briefly played the PS3 one (I really hate the PS3 DualShock controller; I genuinely think that's why I stopped playing), but I wish I'd persevered for the crazy bits. Almost definitely getting this one!

No regrets!

You may have also seen this on Twitter.

You know, I don't think I've actually played a Katamari game to completion. My exposure to the series has solely been through demos. Laughing

Still, I liked what I played in those demos so I'll be up for this.

This is oot noo, with a demo to boot. I've tried it out and haven't quite clicked with the controls, but I love everything else about it.

I finished this last night! It's short but sweet, I can see myself going back to replay many of the levels.

It's good! Katamari Damacy never made it to Europe, but its sequel did (thanks to EA, of all publishers!). I think We Love Katamari is probably the better of the two, but Katamari Damacy is more focused - all the levels take place in the same world, and the message at the end is a good, and fitting one.

The port could be better, it seems more sluggish than it looks on PS2 when things get busy, and it might be because developer MONKEYCRAFT ported the game to a different engine, one that isn't known for great performance (Unity).

But still, for 16 it's well worth it, and for once a publisher is passing on digital-only cost savings to us. Despite the game being the same worldwide (it shows up as purchased for me on the Japanese eShop) it's cheapest in Europe due to no boxed release. It's $30 in America and about 25 in Japan.
