The re-release of the game is called Katamari Damacy REROLL and it’s a remastered version of the original classic game. The re-released version of the game is coming to PC and Nintendo Switch with a worldwide release date of December 7th, 2018.
The game supports 2 players and can render up to 60fps. Some more information about the game can be seen below as posted in the press release that was issued out earlier this week.
A unique visual style and fun J-pop soundtrack make this a truly unmissable experience for anyone young at heart! Roll through and explore inventive and quirky levels with your adhesive sphere (The Katamari), capable of collecting paper-clips, books, cars, buildings, mountains and even continents, as it grows larger and larger.
Following a particularly lively night of fun, the King of All Cosmos has knocked all the stars from the sky. You play the role of his son – the Prince, as he travels to Earth to collect and reassemble the missing celestial bodies by rolling the Katamari across the globe and collecting everything in its path.
Katamari Damacy REROLL will feature remastered graphics and cut scenes as well as new motion controls unique for the Nintendo Switch version. Using two Joy-Cons in TV mode or table-top mode, players can move the Prince around with ease by simply turning their wrists. Players can also play in a multiplayer mode on the Nintendo Switch with one Joy-Con each
The PC and Nintendo Switch are the only platforms announced so far that is getting the re-released version of the game. It’s a bit weird Bandai Namco did not mention anything for the PS4. Hopefully it’s something they consider in the near future since the series started on the PlayStation 2.
