'Katamari Forever' (PS3) Goes Gold

The King of All Cosmos has bumped his head and lost all his memory. The Prince and his cousins created RoboKing to replace the King, but it went out of control and destroyed all the stars in the Cosmos. To clean up the mess made by RoboKing and bring back the King’s memory, the Prince and his Cousins must roll their Katamaris and bring color back to the world. So get ready to roll that Katamari once more!

Use the Prince's Katamari to roll up as many everyday objects as possible within a time limit. The more objects that the Prince rolls up, the larger his Katamari becomes, allowing him to roll up bigger items.  The Prince faces his toughest challenge ever as Katamari Forever boasts the largest collection of stages, modes, songs, and cousins to date.  Remixed classic Katamari Damacy tunes, a brand-new storyline, multiple new visual effects and 1080p graphics round out Katamari Forever into the ultimate Katamari experience ever.

An unfortunate accident has caused the King of All Cosmos to lose his memory and all the stars to disappear from the night sky. The Prince must use his finely tuned Katamari rolling skills once more to re-create the absent celestial bodies, save his royal father and restore order to the Cosmos.  Thumb tacks, sushi, cats, people, skyscrapers, ocean liners and continents – nothing is safe as the Prince makes his way through the largest variety of stages in a single Katamari game.    

Katamari Forever features a brand new art style along with multiple graphic filters to bring out even more variety than ever before.  The new changeable graphic filters give Katamari Forever a certain je ne sais quoi that all Katamari games possess.  Wood Tone transforms everything in the world into carved out wooden blocks while Comic Book paints the screen with bold colors and stroke outlines.  Players looking to take a trip down memory lane can switch to Classic to re-create the series trademark visual style in glorious 1080p.  Make sure to try them all out and find your favorite for a totally new way to experience the world of Katamari. 

In addition to all these great new features, Katamari Forever also includes fun and frantic cooperative and competitive multiplayer modes.  Choose your favorite cousin and play together or compete in heated Katamari competition.  Who will become the Katamari champion in your house?
