BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment America Inc followed up the Nintendo Direct’s Katamari Damacy REROLL reveal by announcing the game will be available for both Nintendo Switch and Steam when it rolls to digital stores on December 7, 2018.
Katamari Damacy REROLL is a remaster of the acclaimed game, which finds players racing the timer as they roll their way through strange levels, gathering a snowball of items until they beat each level’s “par” size. The remaster features a unique visual art syte, a J-pop soundtrack, and a “truly memorable title for anyone who is young at heart.”
According to BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment America Inc’s Associate Brand Manager, Abelina Villegas, “Katamari Damacy is a game of pure joy. From the whimsical story, colorful graphics, cute characters, and delightful J-pop soundtrack, the game simply exudes light-hearted fun. We aim to delight returning fans of the franchise as well as those who may not have had a chance to be on the ball the first time around with Katamari Damacy REROLL.”
