Annapurna Interactive and Funemona announced on Monday that Katamari Damacy game creator Keita Takahashi and video game designer Robin Hunicke's Wattam game will launch for PlayStation 4 and PC via the Epic Games Store on December 17. Annapurna Interactive began streaming a release date trailer:
The game will follow the Mayor of Wattam and will feature solo and co-op play. Takahashi first developed the idea of "making connections between different types of things" with his friend Vikram. The title comes from both Japanese and Tamil words for “making a circle” or “making a loop.”
Takahashi and Hunicke announced the game in December 2014. The original announcement describes Wattam as a "3D action game with interactive sound."
Takahashi's Katamari Damacy rolling puzzle game inspired seven sequels in North America and Japan for PlayStation 2, PlayStation 3, PlayStation Portable, PlayStation Vita, Xbox 360, and mobile devices. Takahashi also directed and designed Noby Noby Boy and Tenya Wanya Teens.
