I know this is a classic, but I found the controls to be awful and couldn't find a way to change them. It's sort of the equivalent to resi evil tank controls, or maybe going back to try and play an fps on a controller with only one analogue stick. I just couldn't stick at it.
good game

I found that at first too, particularly on the demo where there is no option to change the controls. Got used to it eventually, and I found it part of the charm in a way, chaotically crashing into everything. The game ( imo ) is sheer perfect lunacy.

Edit. You can use motion controls too of course, which is not available to try in the demo.

Fantastic game.
Amazing game I hope this port is as good
Never understood the hype around these games. What's the point?
Heat, but surprised it never released on PS4/Xbox One.
Seems to be the new yo-yo priced digital game on Nintendo’s platform. Has been this price before so waiting for it t go down further as it’s a classic
I want this so bad. But thinking about it I’ll probably get on PC. My joycons would get destroyed playing katamari on switch. Hot
Awful controls and graphics that don't look any better than the old Vita version. I'd recommend a demo download before committing to buy...

Whats the point in living your going to die anyway.
From the reviews I quickly read, the controls are the same as the original? If so, that's great, that was part of the fun. It would seem odd with anything else

I meant what's the point of the game. Just looks like you roll about collecting rubbish!

Not just rubbish, everything.
If you want the storyline, the King of the Cosmos got a lil bit tipsy/high, and ended up knocking all the stars out of the sky. He tasks you with collecting things up so he can restore the sky to its former glory.

From controls to level design, it's literally the first Katamari Damacy from the PS2 (which most Europeans probably never played, as it didn't get a release outside the US and Japan; I had to both import a copy and mod my console to get it running) but running on hardware that doesn't slow to a crawl in the last couple of levels as things go ridiculously epic.

It is WONDERFUL. If I really wanted to pick threads, then the sequel We Love Katamari is even better, but maybe we'll get that ported if this has sold well, and since that got a worldwide release it's less likely to be new to the audience.
The controls are definitely awkward as hell but its such a charming wee gem that you can overlook them

Thanks for posting; we have added this to the Highlights section
It’s great, well worth the price! Preferred the music in We Love Katamari (or was it Katamari Forever?!). That said it isn’t a game for everyone and the joycons let the side down a bit. It’s much better with the Pro Controller but if you have one of the 8bitdoo dongles, the Wii U Pro Controller or PS4 controller feels more natural.
Worth buying just for the title music

Shh, no-one tell him about Super Mario Bros (1985) or indeed any other game that came out after 1984!

The Katamari series is joyful, ethereal, chaotic fun. It not being your thing is something anyone can understanding. You not accepting it's plenty of other people's thing is just intolerant.

In fact you sound like exactly the kind of person who needs some Katamari in your life. Roll out!

FFS! I just asked what the game was about!!
I've owned just about every gaming system since the Zx81 & have played literally 1000's of games, so who are you to judge me?
Mind you own business!!

The good news is you can also play this version with a simplified control scheme which is basically left stick to roll and a few other button presses for moving round the ball, super dash thing etc. The default controls are indeed pretty terrible and I have no idea what they were thinking!

If you have a problem with people weighing in on your views, you'll have to stop posting them on public forums where everyone has the right to reply.

Either way, play a Katamari game. It really does bring joy to the soul.
