Katamari Damacy


I LOL'd.


Kinect, as it stands right now, is a "pretty cool" thing. As a supplement to the general operation of an Xbox 360, it's hard for me to imagine living without it now that it's in my home. As an accessory designed for the purpo...


And this is the premise behind Touch My Katamari. The King of All Cosmos must prove that he is awesomer than that little kid's school principal. At least that's what I hope the premise is really all about, because that would...


Goro is...well, he's a lot like me. He's a gamer, slacker, and internet addict, though my head quite isn't as long as his. You'll see in this new trailer for upcoming Vita game Touch My Katamari that during one of his strugg...


Everybody loves Katamari Damacy, right? Keita Takahashi’s silly, quirky creation -- classified by publisher Namco Bandai in the genre of “rolling action” -- is, by now, a beloved series. But for many fans, t...


Well, it's as classy as billiards trick shots in soft focus set to piano music can get. That's pretty classy for anything related to the Katamari games from Namco Bandai. ... Okay, so it's not classy at all. But it's hilario...


Namco Bandai released the opening cinematic for Katamari Damacy No-Vita (Touch My Katamari in the US and Europe), coming to PlayStation Vita. You can watch it. The King of all Cosmos has some serious moves. It's ea...

Today, we did our live show, as usual. You know, except Tara and our producer Zac are down at Blizzcon. Today I got left to my own devices with Anthony Carboni, host of Revision3's new show New Challenger, which I was o...


The Katamari Damacy title for PlayStation Vita has been given a rather amazing name: Touch My Katamari. Better yet, the game will be available on February 22 alongside the PlayStation Vita's debut in North America, Canada, Eu...


Last night, a number of PlayStation Vita launch titles were priced for Japan, bringing with it the good news that digital versions will be cheaper than physical versions -- something that the PSPgo utterly failed to do. A num...

Although, technically, the Prince would eventually roll you up in his Katamari regardless of you being a dick to him. Still, you might get to enjoy life a little longer if you let the Prince roll along in peace.


It's clear from this panel at the Toronto Comic Arts Festival that the creators of the hit show Adventure Time really loves videogames. There are a lot of name drops here in terms of gaming's influence on the show; Zelda, Ma...


As my first post on my first day back at work, I really wanted to set the tone as positive. And with corgis. So I present to you a Welsh Corgi named Yoshi, dressed up in a Yoshi (from Nintendo's Mario series) outfit. How grea...

Keita Takahashi, the mad genius (he's at least one of those things all the time) behind Katamari Damacy and Noby Noby Boy left Namco Bandai some time ago, apparently bored with game development. Rumor was that he ha...


Keita Takahashi may be famous for making bright, happy games such as Katamari Damacy and Nobi Nobi Boy, but the quirky developer has a bleak and depressing view on the future of the games industry. In fact, he doesn't think h...

Did you enjoy last week's Once Upon a Pixel episode? Want some insight as to how and why I created the dark world that Death Ball takes place in? If the answer to either of these questions is "no", then maybe you haven't seen...


Once Upon a Pixel kicks off its official first season with an episode based on Katamari Damacy! Except this time, it's not a bright and happy videogame about consumerism. You see, in the world of Once Upon a Pixel, Katamari i...


Last week was full of violence as Karoshi (Japanese for "death by overwork") brought us countless levels involving suicide strategies. If you thought that was the peak of Japanese odd vocabulary and Japanese-themed ...

I'm sure you all remember the first trailer for Katamari Forever that Joseph posted a while back. It had a monkey in it, which is really the only reason I remember. Above, you'll find the new launch trailer for the game, whic...


I know full well that the upcoming Katamari Forever is nothing more than a rehash of all the previous games with new skins and music, and you know what? I'm just FINE with that. Much like the Silent Hill series, I'm just happ...


Yes, that's a boring and functional headline, but I'll be damned if I'm going to make like every other blogger and write that Katamari Forever is "rolling" onto the PS3. Everybody's done that, and it's neither origi...


Here's something that a lot of people don't get: videogames shouldn't always talk. There is a variety of reasons for this, but I'll just touch on a few. For one, videogame characters are most often made out of hand-drawn spri...

Watch this slideshow first. You've just witnessed what might be the geekiest wedding ever to happen. Aidra and Ernest were married in Idaho earlier this month, with the whole event being Katamari Damacy themed. Really. Grooms...


If there is one thing that can be said about the Katamari games it is that they are relentlessly normal. They're fantastically amazing games that make total sense and are not strange in any way. Even the advertising for the g...


Naa naaaaa. Everyone is on Twitter. Now, even the King of Cosmos is on Twitter, and he wants you to follow him. What will he tweet about? He'll probably be just like us, bitching about his long-headed lover, or talking about ...

Unhappy with the official box art for Namco Bandai's Katamari Damacy, Destructoid forum-goer Matthew Blake took matters into his own hands. He created his own. While we're flattered by the fact that he put our very own Mr. De...


I love Katamari Damacy's musical score, but I've grown a bit tired of hearing the same thing over and over with its reuse in the last couple of series games. Because of this, I was pleased to find out that the upcoming PS3 ga...


Just when I thought I was tired of Katamary Damacy, Katamari Forever is announced. And after the trailers and material I've seen, I find myself excited about the franchise again. The Prince has that power over us. Aside ...
