Japan may have the Vita already, but the folks in the Land of the Rising Sun will have to wait for Touch My Katamari just like the rest of us. While we twiddle our thumbs in anticipation for Feb. 22, when the game and handheld launch concurrently here in the States and Europe, this character video will have to do. For now.

Watch as Goro, your average sweatsuit-clad uber-nerd, falls into depression triggered by the realization that he is, in fact, a total dork. Only the sight of the King of All Cosmos’ fall from grace motivates him to get off his rear and … well, that’s when the “To be continued” shows up. Watch the video after the jump and read Alexa’s impressions of the game here.
