Well, this week in Famitsu, there was an announcement about:

Katamari Damacy Tribute
- PS3
- 2009 release
- full HD
- new visual expression


More news later. It was within the GAF Famitsu thread.

Not sure exactly what it is, but its Katamari on PS3 (maybe a Full HD remake of KD, the best Katamari game IMO).

you could probably get either of the ps2 versions pretty cheap. i lucked out and got one during that big sale last year i think it was on amazon. its a fun veggie game great music too but the story is wy the Fuck off in a good way. multiplayer for this is gonna be crazy especially if theres alot of people on at once. that is if it has multiplayer.

It already came out, it's called Beautiful Katamari and it is on the 360. :lol:

Joking aside, my girlfriend loves the series so I will pick it up on day one.

I liked We Love Katamari a lot (never spent much time with the other ones), and I've been thinking about getting another one... might just have to wait and check this one out when it's released.

I've got every Katamari on home console, so you know I'll pick this up, too (assuming it's cheap). But...

-I don't see how 1080p will make a difference. It's not like 720p in Beautiful Katamari did anything for me.
-I'm not exactly looking forward to the increase of J-pop in the series.
-I hope a black and white stage isn't the extent of this game's innovation.

PlayStation 3 owners who felt a little left out when Katamari Damacy came exclusively to Xbox 360 last year at long last have the bragging rights all to themselves. The latest Famitsu has first details on Katamari Damacy Tribute, an all new PlayStation 3 entry in the series.

Tribute retains the basic Katamari Damacy formula, but appears to up the scale of everything. You'll find items in far greater numbers sitting around waiting to be picked up and added to your growing katamari clump. The game features over 30 stage goals -- the highest number in series history.

Some of the biggest changes are in the presentation. The game supports full 1080p -- as in 1920x1080.

In addition, the visual design has changed. Or, rather, it can be changed. You can now choose your own visual style, selecting from a variety of styles like "comic touch," "new touch," and "wood touch." The game's rendering engine changes accordingly. Those who like the original style can play the old fashioned way too.

Other new elements include a new monochrome stage, where everything except for your katamari is monochrome, and an all new mode of play that's still being kept under wraps. The game will also feature some form of PlayStation Network support. Famitsu lists the title as supporting two players, so we're hoping for some form of online play.

Katamari Damacy Tribute will hit Japanese retail some time this year. The game is only 40% done, but Famitsu's online counterpart Famitsu.com will apparently have first video footage on Friday.

Milking or not, this is a day 1 purchase. And you are insane if you didn't think 720p on BK made a difference! A crisp, clean Katamari with no jaggies is always welcome. It's been a while since I played the PS2 games so I don't even mind if this is a rehash of those.

Well as long as the devs make the levels feel a lot more like the PS2 levels than the BK levels I will be contented. The levels in BK were really constrained and almost felt like they had set paths that needed to be taken in order to get the 120 point scores which was a real drag. The game should be more focused on pure fun like We Love Katamari.

Ah, Katamari... the only game series I own all the soundtracks for. Also the only one where I bought a game for a system I didn't own. (My boyfriend deeply regretted that 'you can use my 360' comment for a few weeks there. :lol:)

I will buy this. Period. I don't care if it's new, if it's remake, if it's hodgepodge... I will buy this. Katamari owns my wallet.
