Summary

I can’t believe I am about to say this, But so you know that there are people out there who have never seen or played a Katamari game? I mean how? I know how but it just makes me sad as Katamari games are a game’s definition of happiness. For the uninformed Katamari is a game whereby you push a ball around a level collecting anything smaller than you, obviously as you grow more objects and items are open to you. Katamari Damacy Reroll is a remaster of the game that originally came out on the PlayStation 2. Some regard it as one of the best because of the diverse levels and whacky music, I agree with that notion, Katamari Damacy is one of the best Katamari games and is also an excellent entry point into the series. It does have any upgrades or additions like leaderboards or multiplayer but it does stick to the original and maintains everything that made the og version what it is. Overall I implore all and any fans of the series to grab this and if you know someone who has never heard of it, do the right thing and bring them in. Katamari Damacy Reroll is an excellent game that might not offer anything new but instead shows off the magnificence of the series.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
