posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
Nintendo revealed during its Nintendo Direct presentation on Thursday that Bandai Namco Entertainment will release Katamari Damacy Reroll (Katamari Damacy Encore in Japan), an HD version of its Katamari Damacy game, for the Nintendo Switch and PC on December 7.
Bandai Namco Entertainment America describes the game:
The King of All Cosmos has knocked out all the stars in the sky after a particularly rambunctious night of fun. Realizing his mistake, The King has tasked his young son, The Prince, to go to Earth and roll up as many things as possible to recreate the missing celestial bodies. Paper clips, books, cars, buildings, mountains, and continents, nothing is too big or small for The Prince and his adhesive Katamari ball. Katamari Damacy REROLL will feature remastered graphics and cut scenes as well as new motion controls optimized for the Nintendo Switch. Using the left and right Joy-Con controllers while the Nintendo Switch is in TV mode or Tabletop mode, players can move The Prince around with ease by simply turning their wrists.
Bandai Namco released the rolling puzzle game Katamari Damacy for the Playstation 2 in 2004. Katamari Damacy inspired numerous sequels in North America and Japan for PlayStation 2, PlayStation 3, PlayStation Portable, PlayStation Vita, Xbox 360, and mobile devices. Bandai Namco Entertainment released its Amazing Katamari Damacy smartphone game last December.
