We didn't think
that Katamari Damacy
creator Keita Takahashi
had returned for the PlayStation 3's Katamari Damacy Tribute
after sitting out Me and My Katamari
and Beautiful Katamari --
though there was a vague hope in the back of our mind. Having the eccentric Takahashi at the helm would immediately
transform the game from a sad exploitation of a dead franchise to MUST BUY NOW.
Namco Bandai officially confirmed our suspicions, telling Eurogamer
that Takahashi has not returned to the franchise for the new 1080p installment. However, the company said that the game is "in good hands," even if those hands aren't
inside a Noby Noby Boy scarf.
