Katamari Damacy is a 2004 PS2 game directed by Keita Takahashi. In this game, you're a prince who is tasked by his father, The King of All Cosmos, to restore all the stars and planets after he accidentally wipes all of them out. You do that by rolling a ball (or a Katamari) over small stuff to make it bigger, so you can roll it over bigger stuff, and eventually getting it big enough to turn it into a star.
Also your father is a huge asshole.
The game is a cult-classic, loved for its kooky, wacky and quirky style/story/characters, its amazing soundtrack and its unique and fun gameplay.
Katamary Damacy REROLL is a remaster of the 2004 game for PC and Nintendo Switch. New to this version are upgraded visuals, with high-res gameplay and cutscenes recreated in HD, as well as optional motion controls in the Switch version. Also this is the first time they game is being released in Europe.
