We Love Katamari REROLL + Royal Reverie Announced
We Love Katamari REROLL + Royal Reverie was announced as part of the Nintendo Direct broadcast on Feb. 8. Here's everything we know about the remaster so far.
Though February's Nintendo Direct was mainly focused on games releasing in the first part of 2023, there were still a number of great surprises shown throughout the showcase's 40 minute run time. Aside from building hype around their biggest release coming this year, The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, Nintendo revealed a number of retro games were getting a new lease of life. Most notably, We Love Katamari.
We Love Katamari REROLL + Royal Reverie is a remaster of the 2005 PS2 release We Love Katamari. The game was a sequel to the surprise hit Katamari Damacy, which also received a remaster in 2018.
According to a blog post by publisher Bandai Namco, We Love Katamari REROLL will add quality-of-life enhancements, new modes such as Selfie Mode and Eternal Mode and five new challenges themed around the story of the young King of All Cosmos.
Eternal Mode will allow players to roll their Katamari with no time limit, aimed at more casual play.
