Katamari Team Disbands 45

Gamasutra reports that the team behind Katamari Damacy, We *heart* Katamari, and My My Katamari has dissolved. The official Katamari site states that there are no plans for sequels to the hit rollin' games. From the article: "The official announcement does mention that 'Professor Katamari' (presumably Keita Takahashi) is currently working on a new game design, though apparently not with the core Katamari Damacy team. 'You don't roll things up, or get bigger, but you might find it interesting anyway,' says the site." Which is good news, considering his earlier comments about making playground equipment.

    i read in an interview before the release of We Love Katamari that Takahashi Keita actually had to be roped into doing the sequel at all.. apparently it was only when he saw what namco had planned for the afforementioned sequel (a clone of the first, with a bunch of christmas graphics spliced in) that he got involved again. it IS a shame, though.. i could handle playing new levels of the same old katamari for YEARS to come.. :)

    I was actually really hoping for a version of Katamari Damacy using the revolution controller. Watching my nieces play this game, while they flail the controller all over the air, made me think it would be an absolute perfect fit for the revolution.
