Anyone else hoping for more Katamari

13 posts in this topic

As much as I love this game, it’s a little underwhelming compared to We Love Katamari and Beautiful Katamari. It still confuses me why they chose this one and why it took 2 years to come to playstation. Here’s hoping they rerelease more katamari games, or better yet release a new katamari game.

It might be the nostalgia goggles, but Katamary Damacy is the one I've enjoyed the most. I've also played We Love Katamari and Beautiful Katamari and found the locations and soundtrack of the former much better than the later ones (which are also amazing, btw). Looking forward for this plat, but will wait for a sale to get it.

Absolutely hoping for more Katamari. Bought this one twice (Switch physical and PS4 digital) and would gladly re-buy more Katamari titles if they put them out. These games are just so much fun! No bullshit, just simple, satisfying gameplay and a massively enjoyable soundtrack to go with it.

We Love Katamari probably plays the best, but I think the soundtrack on the first game is the best.

 

I am even quite nostalgic now for the PS3 version.

It's a shame that both the PS3 and this version suffer from slowdown sometimes.

 

I mean why should there be slowdown in this game, PS3 perhaps, with all the new shader renders you could do in the game. But this version is basically the PS2 version in higher res just for PS4 and it's not even 60fps either, still stuck at 30fps.

 

Anyway, yes I hope we get all the other versions, I will certainly buy them all.

 

I just completed the game, only the roll up everything trophy now. Just looked at my collection, 89%....

 

As much as I love this game, I don't think I can be bothered with the platinum this time around. Felt like I was playing for 2 weeks on the PS3 version just to roll up all the items and the cowbear stuff, but at least on that version you had the turbo boost engine mode to speed things up. 91% completion is likely enough for me.

 

Hopefully We Love Katamary will be released sooner rather than later.

Unfortunately I never had the pleasure of playing the originals. My first foray was Katamari Forever on PS3. I have yet to play Reroll on PS4, but the wife and I played quite a bit on Switch, as it has been out there for a while now. 

 

I completely agree OP that this game felt very underwhelming compared to the majesty that was Katamari Forever!! Let's just hope that if enough people buy this and show interest, then this will spark them to create a brand new Katamari experience!! That being said, I still plan on picking this one up and adding another Katamari plat to my collection 😁

It would be amazing with more Katamari. Imagine a true next-gen katamari: the scale and scope of the world, the amount of items on display. I believe it would be immensely fun! And i believe that the concept is still truly great. I thouroughly enjoyed Katamari forever on the ps3 but seeing as ps4 or 5 release of a new katamri would be a dream-come-true!

I'd like to see one of two things: either (a) a collection of the remaining games as a single bundle, or (b) a new Katamari game complete with level creator.

Would be nice to see a We Love Katamari (my first Katamari game!) Reroll, or even better - a whole new Katamari. The original Katamari Damacy is still great, but as mentioned, feels a bit underwhelming compared to later games (kinda hard to go back after you've rolled up the entire Earth country by country lol)

I too enjoyed the original the most…until I played this. I really miss the QoL improvements from the sequel, and especially from Katamari Forever. Playing this game is still OK ( the soundtrack remains), but I really miss things like jumping and the like.

 

The lousy trophy list doesn’t help. Nothing for making a max size star, or getting shooting stars.

Exactly. Though I've played a little bit of Katamari Forever from my ex-gf's PS3, now that I've bought one with the game, I'll be able to play it more and make a better judgement, but I remember it was pretty fun! I couldn't get some trophies for Katamari Re-Roll yet, unfortunately (goddamn cows & bears), but I agree about the trophy list as well. I was honestly hoping for something challenging, but not annoying and lousy.

Katamari Forever is the collection to get I guess. Some of the charm of the original games are lost there though, and some levels missing.

 

This one is pretty true to the original, but has a lot of minor changes. I hope they do the same for the second game as well. I'm less fan of Beautiful.

 

Trophy list was okay. Yes, there's no overachieving stuff, it's all rather simple. Pretty much complete each level and find all the items. Without the all items trophy, I'd say it'd be lousy, and I'm sort of happy it didn't have a lot of maxing trophies, though in some way it could have been fun too. idk

It has cowbear and holy cow, along with all the pencils etc! :) This cowbear is a bit different than the one in Forever. Forever had some hot and cold devil, but eh, was pretty easy. Once you learn some good paths, cowbear and holy cow you get the correct size pretty fast and easy, but they can still be a bitch to catch.
