I still fondly remember the absolute confusion that came with the first Katamari game ten years ago now, Katamari Damacy. It was quirky, screaming of what made games from Japan so unique and fun, and was downright addictive. This was at a time when the PlayStation 2 was the undeniable king of the mountain and was unafraid to churn out games like Katamari Damacy, because the PlayStation 2 was untouchable. Sadly the Dreamcast, which took a lot of similar risks with titles, ultimately failed because there was a lot of quirk and not enough meat and potatoes.
So, if you are like me and fondly remember rolling stuff up in a ball just to see if you could roll it up in a ball, you might want to pick up the original Katamari Damacy for the PlayStation 3 next week. It will be released on PSN as a PlayStation 2 Classic title, which means it’ll be cheap and well-worth it.
