    Bandai Namco will be releasing the remaster of 2004’s Katamari Damacy this winter, in the form of Katamari Damacy Reroll. First leaked through European trademark offices and then confirmed in the latest Nintendo Direct, the game will be a simple remaster of the PlayStation 2 classic, and will release for the Nintendo Switch and also PC. The boxart and release date have both been divulged, with the PC version of the game releasing on December 7, while the Switch version will release a little bit later on the 21st. The slight delay for the Switch version might be due to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate launching on the 7th as well.

    This game really made a splash when it first came out. Didn't pick up the remaster, but I'll be picking this one up. Fun gameplay for sure.

    There aint no remaster... They sort of put old "content" in parts of the Katamari Forever PS3 title though...

    Nice, back in the day I played it on the PS2.
    That was really fun!
    I think I go for the switch version.

    I only got to play the kiosk demo growing up so I'll probably get this.

    Never played the original but I played like the android sequel or something. Gloriously demented game, well worth trying.

    Neat. Loved all the Katamari games, so I'll probably buy this for sure for PC when it releases.

    Yes please. This always seemed like an interesting game series, but I never got around to playing it due to mainly being a PC gamer.

    I just realized PC port = mods?

    CUSTOM LEVELS?!?!!?!

    Much. Hype.

    Admittedly, the audience for this series has always been niche, so I wouldn't expect a huge modding scene. Still, I wouldn't mind tinkering with adding some items in here and there. :D
