Na na na na na na na na na katamari damashi

You’d think that a phone with accelerometers and gyroscopes and all that jazz would take advantage of a game format like Katamari Damacy, wouldn’t you? Well, not until next year, it won’t.

Fpr this year’s Jump Festa, a Tokyo-based interactive multimedia showcase centered around the manga anthology Shonen Jump, Bandai Namco has teased a mobile companion to its crazy-popular Playstation: “Tap My Katamari.”

It’s billed as an action puzzle game for iPhone and Android that focuses on our protagonist, the Prince (of All Cosmos), trying to put the stars back together and up in their rightful places in the night sky.

The few seconds of gameplay we see signal that it’s a 2D game that focuses less on the act of rolling over objects to grow your katamari, but to assist the katamari in its rolling through power-up activations. That’s where the “Tap” part comes in, we bet.

Somewhat of a disappointment (but not much of a surprise since the series creator left Bandai Namco in 2012), but if you’re looking forward to any real extension of a popular video game franchise, you’re going to have to look a little more forward: it’s “coming soon.”
