LONDON, UK, 17th November 05 - Namco Ltd. today confirms the European version of Me & My Katamari, exclusively for PSPTM (PlayStation® Portable) system, which will be co-published by Electronic Arts in PAL territories. Me & My Katamari is the latest game in the award-winning Katamari Damacy series and the first to appear on a portable gaming system. Me & My Katamari will be rolling your way in 2006.
Me & My Katamari rejoins the King of All Cosmos, the Queen and Prince who are holidaying on their very own tropical island. It's not long before a community of homeless animals comes asking for royal assistance, so the Prince sets off to create new islands for them using his katamari-rolling skills.
Me & My Katamari features a brand new island-themed interface, hundreds of new objects to collect and the biggest cast of Cousins yet. The controls of its PlayStation®2 predecessors have been intuitively remapped for handheld play, offering players the same simple and immediate gameplay experience. With improved customisation, the Prince and his Cousins can now wear up to three funky accessories at once, so they really look the part.
Designed specifically for the PSP, the title includes a 4-player wireless Ad Hoc mode and the ability to save anywhere, anytime. Me & My Katamari is destined to be your portable friend.
