Namco-Bandai said today that Katamari Forever has gone gold. The game is scheduled to release on September 22 and will retail for $49.99. That’s 10 bucks cheaper than the average PS3 game, but it’s a bit steep for what is essentially a revamped PS2 game.
For the hardcore Katamari fans, there’s no doubt you’ll be picking this one up on day one. Everyone else may want to wait for a price drop or two, especially if you’ve played it before. Or you could always just pick up a used PS2 copy and play it on your Ps3, oh wait, that’s right, SOMEONE doesn’t BELIEVE in backwards compatibility.
