NAMCO BANDAI Games Inc. Letting Players Touch, Squeeze, and Roll with the King of All Cosmos on the PlayStation®Vita system
SAN JOSE, Calif., (February 22, 2012) – Leading video game publisher and developer NAMCO BANDAI Games America Inc., today announced TOUCH MY KATAMARI™ is now available in North America for the PlayStation®Vita system. Players will utilize both the rear touch pad and touchscreen to stretch and squeeze their katamari ball through crazy missions while building up a wacky wardrobe for the King of All Cosmos himself!
Not content with being “only as cool as a school principal,” the King has tasked his son, the tireless Prince, with rolling up an ever more enormous ball of weird and wonderful junk in order to win back the fans who’ve forgotten the glory of the cosmos!
“Few games in our lineup are as bizarre, outrageous, and downright addicting as our beloved KATAMARI DAMACY® series,” said Carlson Choi, VP of Marketing for NAMCO BANDAI Games America Inc. “With TOUCH MY KATAMARI, the series is rolling its way back into the hearts of gamers on the go everywhere with the launch of the PlayStation Vita in North America.”
TOUCH MY KATAMARI™ will also be showering fans with pure katamari joy, with a demo containing a tutorial and one mission scheduled to be available on PlayStation®Network, plus a cosmic explosion of additional downloadable content scheduled to keep players rolling for a long time to come. With in-game releases scheduled over the coming months, the downloadable content will be comprised of several weird and wonderful missions that players can unlock with ‘Fan Damacys’ that are either earned in-game, or can be purchased over PlayStation Network to expedite the player’s ability to roll through these additional levels.
TOUCH MY KATAMARI™ is rated “E 10+” for Everyone 10+ by the ESRB with a MSRP of $29.99. For more information on TOUCH MY KATAMARI™ and NAMCO BANDAI Games’ entire line up, please visit http://www.namcobandaigames.com.
