Leading video game publisher and developer NAMCO BANDAI Games America Inc. announces the return of everyone’s favorite Prince in Katamari Forever for the PLAYSTATION 3 video game and entertainment system. Use the Prince’s katamari to roll up everyday objects in each level. The more objects that the Prince rolls up, the larger his katamari becomes, allowing him to roll up bigger items. The Prince faces his toughest challenge ever as Katamari Forever boasts the largest collection of stages, modes, songs, and cousins to date. Remixed classic Katamari Damacy tunes, a brand-new storyline, multiple new visual effects and 1080p graphics round out Katamari Forever into the ultimate Katamari experience ever.
“Katamari Forever is the pinnacle of the Katamari series,” said Todd Thorson, director of marketing and public relations for NAMCO BANDAI Games. “Players will be amazed as they fall into its universe of addictive gameplay, infectious music, off-beat humor and brand new changeable graphical styles.”
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.
In addition to all these great new features, Katamari Forever will also contain local cooperative and competitive multiplayer modes. Choose your favorite cousin and play together or compete in heated Katamari competition. Who will become the Katamari champion in your house?
