1up.com mentions that in an recent interview, Me & My Katamari Producer Toshiya Hara is dropping hints that Me & My Katamari may be the final entry in the already classic series.
“The core concept of the Katamari series was complete from the first game, and we cannot really improve on this. The PSP version was made basically so that the game could be carried around and played on-the-go,” he said. “So for now, this is where we wrap it up.”
I know that we have quite a few hardcore Katamari fans among our readers so I am sure this news is saddening to all. However, considering how series creator Keita Takahashi stated a few months ago that:
“In 10 years time, I am not going to be making games any more. I would like to create a playground for children. A normal playground is flat but I want an undulating one, with bumps.”
It might not be a bad idea to end it while it is good. We have all seen instances where a series goes on far too long (Mega Man anyone?) and it is far better to end on a high note.
