Namco Hometek Inc. today launched the official Web site for ?We Love Katamari,? the sequel to last year?s acclaimed clump-rolling adventure, ?Katamari Damacy.? The official ?We Love Katamari? Web site rolls to planet Earth with game information, images, fun downloads and fan contests. Developed exclusively for the PlayStation 2 computer entertainment system, ?We Love Katamari? is scheduled for release on September 20th.
The site will give fans a sneak peek at the upcoming game by offering new screens, a trailer and updated information. Visitors can download wallpapers (including a selection of U.S. exclusives) as well as a desktop buddy ? the loveable, pint-sized Prince ? who will roll a katamari around a computer screen. As the game?s launch approaches, the site will offer special items for the Prince to wear and guest desktop buddy skins of the Prince?s cousins.
Fans will be able to submit pictures of their favorite katamari-themed creations ? including costumes, artwork, etc. ? for all site visitors to see and enjoy. On a regular basis, the images will be judged by the franchise?s creator, Keita Takahashi, and prizes will be awarded to these selected fans. The King of All Cosmos himself will even provide commentary on some of the submissions ? but fans beware: even though his words are filled with love, he can be a demanding monarch!
