Love, hygiene, and monsters

Keita Takahashi, the man behind Katamari Damacy and Noby Noby Boy, in collaboration with Venus Patrol, has revealed a bit about his upcoming game, Tenya Wanya Teens. While there isn't much information out there yet, we do have a piece of artwork in a style familiar to Katamari fans, as well as the following description.

"[Tenya Wanya Teens is] a coming-of-age tale about love, hygiene, monsters and finding discarded erotic magazines in the woods." It's a game about trying desperately to not say or do the wrong thing at the wrong time -- that universal struggle to "maintain the façade of normality during the awkward transition from child- to adulthood."

Additionally, Tenya Wanya Teens features a custom sixteen-button controller and music by Asuka Sakai, who composed Katamari Damacy's memorable soundtrack. Gameplay will debut later this month at Game Developers Conference.
