Namco Bandai Games began streaming a 70-second "Goro the Slacker" trailer for the Touch My Katamari (Katamari Damacy No-Vita) game on Tuesday. The video introduces the "hardcore gamer and internet addict" as he laments the decline of the "King of All Cosmos."
Namco Bandai Games' official website for Katamari Damacy No-Vita game revealed in November that the game will feature a stage where players can roll up objects like bishojou figurines and cup-noodle containers in an otaku's room.
Players can roll the Katamari ball in any direction using the PlayStation Vita's multi-touch screen in Touch My Katamari. The portable platform's rear touch pad also allows players to stretch or squeeze the Katamari to gather more objects or fit through a narrow space. Players can also collect and change costumes for the King of All Cosmos, download more stages, and listen to songs by popular artists.
The Gamer.ne.jp website posted a gameplay trailer in November, and the European branch of Namco Bandai Games also began streaming an English trailer for the newest Katamari series game earlier this month.
Touch My Katamari shipped as a PS Vita launch title in Japan on December 17, and Namco Bandai Games will release it in Europe on February 22, 2012.
