Oh Beautiful Katamari

Posted by Anthony Dickens

IGN reports that Namco have dumped the PS3 version of Katamari Damacy sequel, Beautiful Katamari, in favour of a brand new Wii version.

"Namco Bandai revealed earlier this year that it was developing the next-generation Katamari Damacy sequel, Beautiful Katamari, for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. Up until recently, the developer continued to work on both versions of the project. However, sources close to Namco Bandai tell IGN that the studio ran into some trouble with the port of the game to PlayStation 3 and these issues, coupled with the stalled sales of the system, have led to the project's quiet cancellation. Looking to better-than-expected sales of Wii, the company has, say insiders, re-shifted resources to ready a Wii build of Beautiful Katamari instead. Given that the title cannot be ported from Xbox 360, the game is being re-concepted for Wii."

Great news for Katamari fans out there, it makes sense to release this on Wii, the controls could add a whole new twist to the some what crazy original.
