Earlier in November, Bandai Namco confirmed it would be releasing Katamari Damacy Reroll on 7th December - the same day as the highly anticipated release of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate on the Nintendo Switch. Alongside this announcement was the reveal a demo for Reroll would also be made available on launch day here in the west.

Anyone with a Japanese eShop account on their Switch won't need to wait to try before they buy, though. A demo for this enhanced re-release of the original Katamari game is now available to download from the Japan eShop. It'll require 837MB of free space and also happens to include English language support.

Keep in mind this demo will still arrive locally on 7th December, but if you were tempted to pick up the actual game on the same day as Smash and weren't sure yet if it was right for you, now is a great time to check it out in between bigger sessions of other recent releases such as Diablo III: Eternal Collection and Pokémon: Let's Go.

Did you rush over to the Japanese eShop to download this demo when you heard the news? Are you excited this 2004 PlayStation 2 classic is being revitalized? Will you be adding it to your collection alongside Ultimate? Tell us below.
