Katamari Amore Rolls Onto iOS Next WeekS

The Katamari Damacy series just keeps on keepin' on with one more entry, this one for the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad. Katamari Amore is hitting iOS next week and arriving with a guest appearance from fellow Namco mascot Pac-Man.

Amore is the second Katamari game for iOS, following 2008's I Love Katamari. It boasts 24 missions and "six completely new stages," says Namco, leading one to believe that there will be plenty of recycled Katamari content within.

Namco's going "freemium" with Amore, offering the trial download for free, which can be upgraded to the full version for $3.99 USD.

In perhaps more exciting news, this Pac-Man themed stage involving the Katamari-ing of dots and ghosts looks super rad.

Katmari Amore hits iTunes on September 29. Namco has more Katamari planned, with Katamari Nobita pegged as a launch title (in Japan) for the PlayStation Vita.
