THE BUZZ: No, that headline is not some form of sexual harassment—it’s the title of the latest chapter of Katamari Damacy!

Namco Bandai today announced the official name of the North American release of the upcoming Vita version of Katamari Damacy, and it is—indeed—Touch My Katamari.

That name, of course, comes from the fact that not only will you be able to play the game with the Vita’s dual analog sticks, but also by using the rear touch panel to roll, stretch, and squeeze the Prince’s katamari.

Touch My Katamari will be launching alongside the PlayStation Vita on February 22nd along with two other Namco Bandai Vita titles: Ridge Racer and Shinobido 2: Revenge of Zen.

EGM’s TAKE: I was at a point for a while where I got a little burned out on Katamari Damacy, but I’ve now spent enough time away from the series that I’m ready to jump back in. I’m sure it’ll work especially well on the Vita, so bring it on!

Pssst-Won’t You Touch My Katamari?

No, that headline is not some form of sexual harassment—it's the title of the latest chapter of Katamari Damacy!
