A terrible event has occurred causing the stars to disappear from the night sky and the King of All Cosmos to fall into a coma. The Prince must use his finely tuned Katamari rolling skills once more to re-create the absent celestial bodies, save his royal father and restore order to the Cosmos. Thumb tacks, sushi, cats, people, skyscrapers, ocean liners and continents – nothing is safe as the Prince makes his way through the largest variety of stages in a single Katamari game ever. New graphical styles give Katamari Forever a certain “je ne sais quoi” that all new Katamari games possess. A few of the new styles include Wood, which uses warm sepia tones to give stages a wooden feel, while Comic creates thick black outlines on every object while filling them in with deep, rich colors. Make sure to try them all out and find your favorite for a totally new way to experience the world of Katamari.
Japanese games are a misunderstood breed in the US. Often nonsensical, always charming, they are either hit or miss amongst most Westerners. For those that do like them, prepare to celebrate - the latest issue of Famitsu confirms a PS3 exclusive Katamari game is in the works. The game is called Katamari Damacy Tribute, and will be running in full 1080p HD. Designers are aiming for a new 'visual expression' with this game. Tribute is due for a 2009 release in Japan.
The Katamari franchise sees the player as a small character known simply as 'The Prince'. The player must roll up objects into a ball, and as the ball grows bigger, larger objects can be picked up, with entire cities and islands even falling victim to the Prince at times.
If Keita Takahashi's latest offering, the PSN exclusive Noby Noby Boy, is any indication, the Katamari team over at Namco still has a lot of ways to push the boundaries of nonsensical insanity.
