ShackStream: Rolling up stars & good times in We Love Katamari Reroll + Royal Reverie

We Love Katamari Reroll + Royal Reverie has launched on multiple platforms and we're playing it on a special ShackStream today.


Katamari Damacy is a beloved franchise that has been a source of joy for players around the world since the first one came out in 2004. Now, Bandai Namco is introducing the series to a new generation with remakes of the games, and that continues with We Love Katamari Reroll + Royal Reverie. We surely do love Katamari, so we’re going to take it for a spin on a special ShackStream!

Join us as we go live with We Love Katamari Reroll + Royal Reverie at 2:30 p.m. PT / 5:30 p.m. ET on the Shacknews Twitch channel. You can also watch just below.

We Love Katamari Reroll + Royal Reverie came out on June 1, 2023, and is available now on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, Nintendo Switch, and PC. It brings a wealth of improvements to the original game, including improved graphics, controls, and gameplay features that should make it more fun for new and returning players alike. It follows Katamari Damacy Reroll, which also came to the above platforms and has been available since 2018. With both of these games out under the Reroll moniker, it’s a great time to re-explore the series.

      They kind of boned a few things up in this one. The draw distance on some objects is super low and they pop in right in front of you. The zoo level is particularly bad, when you're big the level is basically empty except the animals right on top of you. People have compared it with the original PS2 version and it's far worse than that.

      Not sure if it's a concession for the Switch, but it sucks it's like that on PC and console. Stuff like that should be better in a remake / remaster, not worse!

      It particularly annoying in this game because your main goal is seeing what's out there and trying to plan what to roll up next, but when stuff is invisible until you're near it, you're just rolling blind.

      You guys should try to contact the devs/pubs and see if they'll do anything about it. There are also audio glitches that need to be resolved. This is the sort of game I don't see them patching at all after release, and since it's not exactly a hugely popular game, the few folks who notice these things are basically shouting into a void. :(
