Katamari Damacy is just a working title but, frankly, it's as good as any for the version of the game soon to arrive on PlayStation Vita. Namco Bandai announced today that the venerable roll-em-up will get a Vita release on an unspecified date, and will take advantage of the new handheld's touch-pad controls.

"A completely new Katamari gameplay feature allows players to use the rear touch pad of the PS Vita system to stretch the ball either horizontally or vertically to pick up more objects at once or squeeze through a narrow gap," says the Namco release.
