Leading video games publisher and developer NAMCO BANDAI Games America Inc. announced today that Katamari Forever is now available for the PLAYSTATION 3 computer entertainment system. 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 come together to make this the ultimate Katamari experience yet.
An unfortunate accident has left the King of All Cosmos unconscious. Panicked, the Prince and his cousins quickly construct RoboKing to temporarily replace the King of All Cosmos as he recovers. However, as soon as he is turned on, RoboKing goes haywire, knocking all the stars and planets out of the sky. It is now the Prince's duty to bring the King of All Cosmos back to health, and help RoboKing return all the missing celestial bodies back into the sky.
The sequel to the immensely popular Katamari series, Katamari Forever tasks players to roll up as many everyday objects as possible within a time limit set by the Prince's father, the King of All Cosmos. As more objects are rolled up, your katamari becomes bigger, allowing you to pick up even larger items. Thumb tacks, sushi, cats, people, houses, sky scrapers and ocean liners – nothing is out of bounds as the Prince rolls his way through the most expansive Katamari game to date. In addition to all the rolling around, the Prince has been practicing his royal jumping abilities. Using the PS3's SixAxis controls, the Prince is now able to hop over large objects that stand in his way. The new Prince Hop opens up the world of Katamari in ways never seen before.
Katamari Forever features a brand new art style along with multiple unlockable graphic filters to bring out even more variety than ever before. The new changeable graphic filters give Katamari Forever a certain "je ne sais quoi" that all Katamari games possess. Wood Tone transforms everything in the world into carved out wooden blocks while Comic Book paints the screen with deep, rich colors. Players looking to take a trip down memory lane can switch to Classic and re-create the series trademark visual style in glorious 1080p.
Katamari Forever also includes fun and frantic 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?
Katamari Forever is rated "E" for everyone by the ESRB and carries a MSRP of $49.99.
