Katamari Damacy 20th Anniversary

It's the 20th anniversary of the release of Katamari Damacy. The game came out in Japan March 18th, 2004. America got it a little later that same year. This game has been rolling along for years and keeps coming back and though it's nice you can get in in HD and current consoles and PC...

It be nice of Bandai Namco would make a new game in the series or at least get The Prince in Super Smash Bros. It might be that the games creator Keita Takahashi hasn't come back to make it. Just a bit of trivia, one of the new games he created caused the invention of the office standard app of Slack. Yup, without Damacy, you wouldn't have inter-office software you know and put up with.

If you haven't played the game, then you should at least listen to the insane music from the game. Amazed that hasn't gotten it's own concert series. It's all over the place, but a great soundtrack whenever your on adventure or just driving and want some energy.
In any case, here's some fan art and a zine remembering one of the best games to get lost in. What other game has your Dad getting drunk, destroying all the stars in the sky and then you have to roll up random stuff on Earth to make new stars? I don't think there is one.
