Katamari Damacy was one of the strangest titles that came out for the PS2, which is an achievement in and of itself as the console was known to play host to numerous oddball games, as the increased power under the hood finally allowed developers to go crazy. Gamers who missed out on it the first time will now be able to try and see what all the hooplah was about, as Katamari Damacy has just been released for the PSN this week as a Playstation 2 Classic. If you have a PS3, you’re good to go.
Sony’s official description of Katamari Damacy (via the Playstation blog):
Ever wonder what it would be like to roll around and collect everything you touched in one massive heap? Well that’s exactly the premise of Namco’s strange action game Katamari Damacy. In it, players assume the role of the Prince of the Cosmos as he undertakes a quest to right the wrongs of his father who accidentally knocked the stars out of the sky. The only way to fix it is to roll around the world and collect as many items as possible in one gigantic clump. Both a single player story mode and two-player battle feature are included for the romp, and gamers will be able to accumulate hundreds of different items of various shapes and sizes.
