The King of All Cosmos Wants You to Touch His Katamari

What’s that? You’re not the type? Whatever.

Katamari Damacy fans will be getting a new installment of the knock-crap-over-and-roll-it-up franchise on February 22 for the Playstation Vita. That’s right — you’re gettin’ some on launch day. Namco Bandai’s new release, appropriately inappropriately-named Touch My Katamari, operates on the same premise as its predecessors. Players will be rolling sticky balls around the Earth collecting junk and the occasional pedestrian while their huge, flamboyant and slightly-deranged father, the King of All Cosmos, spouts heinous nonsense over their shoulders. This version, however, will make use of the Vita’s rear touch pads, which will allow players to compress their katamari in order to squeeze into previously inaccessible areas.

Is it just me, or are these games getting more and more enjoyably nutty? Consider this quote from the King, from the last game: “Yes, We were naughty. Completely naughty. So, so very sorry. But just between you and Us, It felt quite good.”
