    A clean and easy HD version that doesn't mess with the perfect formula of the original. Katamari is as amazing today as it was 14 years ago.

    Still one of the most original and entertaining video games there’s ever been, with a surreal sense of humour that permeates every corner of the gameplay and presentation.

    In a cynical era where nostalgia is pumped for all its worth with endless soulless remasters, Katamari Damacy Reroll serves up an engaging and rewarding game that hasn’t let any of its original charm or personality be lost in the transition from one platform to another. With support for gyro controls and multiplayer – not to mention a degree of performance that sees it run smoothly in both handheld and docked mode – this Switch edition is easily the best way to play it outside of blowing the dust off your old PS2.

    Katamari is back with another great adventure. It doesn’t have many new relevant features or content, but it still is a joy to play.

I'm addicted to this highly original game, that has one of the greatest soundtracks ever! Use the regular controls NOT the simple controls. The controls for this game do have a learning curve though once you get how it works, you truly do feel like you are controlling this giant ball! Expand

This is an all time favorite, and the port onto the Switch is in HD and has never looked better. The colors are bright; rolling is as smooth as ever, and the quirkiness of the game will have you rolling your worries away far into the night. Very few games are a must have, but this one ranks above just about all of them. It's perfect for kids and adults alike. Nothing beats the King of All Cosmos waking up the day after a huge bender making his son fix yesterday's machinations to one of the best soundtracks in gaming history. Na... na na na na na na na na na na na na na... Enjoy. Expand

    Excellent game. I played all of the previous in the franchise including the terrible PSP version. This is perfect for the Switch. The artisticExcellent game. I played all of the previous in the franchise including the terrible PSP version. This is perfect for the Switch. The artistic graphic style holds up really well in HD. Got while at the Gamestop Smash launch. I think I was the only dude in line picking this up too lol. Im not going to reduce my score because the asymmetrical analog sticks take a little away vs a Dualshock. This is a must have game for anyone on the switch if you like quirky Japanese games and want something different. Have not tried to 2 player mode yet, really looking forward to it. Expand

    It’s the same katamari as before. There doesnt appear to be a change to frame rate but the images are a little more clear. I love this game.It’s the same katamari as before. There doesnt appear to be a change to frame rate but the images are a little more clear. I love this game. It was a 10/10 before but the lack of any real framerate remastering makes me feel it’s 9/10.

    The music is so good though. Maybe they updated the bitrate on the tracks because they are the best chillwave tracks on any game

    This game is boring and a total waste of money. Was looking for a new switch game and was disappointed.
