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!

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.

There's a box release in the US? That makes me tempted to import

I picked up a Japanese copy of the original on PS2 and it kind of highlighted some of the drawbacks of the port which were at the back of my mind when I was originally playing it, but I also thought maybe it was always like that:

- The load times are super long - about three times as long as the PS2 game loading from an old DVD. I suspect this is because this new version is running on Unity engine now.
- There's noticeable input lag to the controls, and it definitely makes it harder to pull off that move where you jiggle both analogue sticks in opposing directions to speed up. On Switch it doesn't feel as reliable as on the ol' PS2.

Given the original PS2 release never came out in Europe I can only recommend ReRoll. It's a faithful enough port - but it's sloppily programmed.

I did import this (the Japan version as it has english) and I loved it. Loading times certainly weren't an issue for me!
