Nice. I was talking with friends recently about how I always wanted to play the original, but didn't want to track down a copy.

Sidenote, I really don't get the extreme anger some people have over ports and remasters. A port just means a new audience has the chance to more easily play this game. Heaven forbid not everyone track down a working PS2, a copy of the game, and all the accessories you'll need to play (really just a controller and memory card, but still).

The fact that the Switch is a handheld is a huge selling point as well. People might already have the Final Fantasy games or Katamari or Diablo III or whatever else, but they probably don't have a handheld HD version of these games.

Kinda disappointing that it's a remake instead of a new game, but I'll probably play it anyway.

It's gorgeous. I mean, I totally suck at Katamari, but I'm doing my best to not suck so I can enjoy it more.

This game must have totally missed me because I've never in my life seen, played, or heard of this until now. Looked up the PS2 gameplay online and laughed a little bit at the people who get caught in the blob or whatever. This game is a trip. Between that and the music, clearly, this was made by a psychopath, lmfao.

It's a great time, although $30 for something as old and short as it is is kind of insane.

^It was twenty bux when it came out. Is it insane to ask a little more for an HD remaster on a new console?

'Katamari Damacy' was hype, and it had great music. I hope you like it if you ever play it, Sonic 5 and steeze.

That kind of makes more of a case against the price point, actually. HD remaster ports are so common because they're relatively fast and easy to pump out. If it's indeed a full remake or includes enough new content then that's different, though.
