Anyway... yep, lucky PS3 owners can do the happy dance as Katamari Forever has gone gold and should be in stores on September 22, 2009. The new visual style in most of these screens is a super-cool and welcome change (as well a an all-new customization feature) and it looks as if there are some new twists to the gameplay as well. But don't take my word for it. Heck, what do I know? Here, read this instead:
An unfortunate accident has caused the King of All Cosmos to lose his memory and all the stars to disappear from the night sky. 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.
Katamari Forever features a brand new art style along with multiple 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 bold colors and stroke outlines. Players looking to take a trip down memory lane can switch to Classic to re-create the series trademark visual style in glorious 1080p. 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 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?
Alrighty then. The truth IS out there, see? Anyway, let me shut up, post these screens and artwork then go hide somewhere deep underground. When that big clump of screaming stuff rolls by MY window, my butt will be well covered as I find a niiiiice quiet subway tunnel somewhere along with some emergency rations and my PSP (hopefully with a copy of Tekken 6 and/or SoulCalibur: Broken Destiny in it)!
