Touch My Katamari makes you want to buy it just because of the suggestive title. Yes, my mind is always in the gutter so I apologize. Wait, no I don’t. If you’re a long time Katamari fan like myself you have been looking forward to something new in the series. This title is nothing of the sort. The only thing new about it is the front and rear, no pun intended, touch capabilities making your Katamari thinner or wider depending on the swip motion you give the Ps Vita. You can use the standard analog sticks as well as the touch screen to move your prince and his Katamari ball, which will give the same results. However, This game is better than the original PSP Katamari, Me and My Katamari. The controls in the older portable version drove me insane but in the PS Vita version I found that the controls actually were simple and I did better than any other game in the series. With that said this game will disappoint long time fans but if you’re new to the series you’ll enjoy the mindless fun this game will deliver. You really can’t go wrong with rolling up everything including the universe.
