Keita Takahashi made Katamari Damacy. He doesn't do that anymore. These days, he's making Noby Noby Boy, a PlayStation Network title that has just been given a release date and price.
It'll be out in Japan and Korea on January 29, and in recognition of the game's lack of structure (you basically just stretch a boy around like a snake, watching him...do...stuff) it's priced at ￥800 (USD$9).
Sony Europe tell us only that it'll be out in "early 2009", which isn't very helpful, but they also tell us it'll cost €4, which is helpful. American info should be on its way once American PR folks finish their breakfasts.
To tide you over, some new screens for the game are below.
