The Touch My Katamari wiki last edited by FreezyFrog on 05/31/14 05:52AM View full history

Overview

Touch My Katamari was a launch title for the PlayStation Vita and the 10th installment in the Katamari Damacy franchise. It was released in Japan on December 17th 2011 under the name "Katamari Damacy No-Vita" and on February 22nd in North America and Europe. The moniker "No-Vita" is a play on words, using the name of the console and the Japanese word Nobita meaning "to lengthen or extend" which refers to the new ability The Prince has.

Gameplay

The gameplay follows that of the previous games in the series but includes the ability for players to either compress or stretch their Katamari using the front or rear touch panels of the PlayStation Vita. A wide, stretched Katamari allows smaller items to be picked up more easily whereas a tall, compressed one allows you to roll up areas that would normally be inaccessible. The game also features an additional touch-control option aside from the standard twin analog stick control method.

Story

The story sees a washed up King of Cosmos attempting to repair his relationship with his in-game fans who have become sad due to the ensuing ports and spin-offs that followed the first two Katamari installments. Meanwhile alongside the King's story animated cutscenes follow the life of a slob gamer named Goro who is trying to get his life back together after seeing a news broadcast telling of the King's apparent depression.
