I Love Katamari is this week's Xbox Live game for Windows Phone 7

Two weeks ago, Castlevania graced Windows Phone 7 as an Xbox Live game. This Wednesday, another popular console franchise makes its mobile Xbox Live debut: I Love Katamari from Namco Bandai.

I Love Katamari is part of the Katamari Damacy series. In these games, the player is tasked with rolling up various objects, animals, and even people into a giant, sticky ball called a Katamari. This version of the game uses tilt controls to steer the ball. It also has a single Achievement worth a whopping 110 GamerScore, which has to be a Windows Phone 7 record. Just don’t expect that one to be easy: it’s awarded for rolling up every single item in the game, which will surely take a while.

Did I mention the graphics, sound, and pretty much everything about the Katamari series are completely wacky? Find out if you love Katamari too when it releases on Xbox Live this Wednesday.

  • I really enjoyed the Katamari games back on the PS2 and a smartphone seems like the perfect platform for this game. Can't wait for Wednesday (and hopefully it won't cost $7).
  • Whoa, talk about coming out of left field. Definitely giving this one a try, and I'm also hoping it's not a $7 game. I still haven't bought Rocket Riot because of this.
  • It's Namco...of course it's going to be like $7 :-/
  • Fingers crossed for $5 like the iPhone version!
  • Now THIS game I would pay ANY price for.I absolutely LOVE Katamari games...and the soundtrack alone is worth the cost. Hopefully it will have wacky Japanese to English transalations like the original did when it debuted on the Playstation!!
  • Love this game, but wish we would get more exclusives darnit. I have already played and beaten most of these on the Iphone or Ipad
  • I don't usually get excited about games where I have to tilt the screen.... but I can get excited about some Katamari!
  • It's up! And it's $6.99. :(
