You Control the Katamari Creator's New Game With a 16-Button Joystick. Wait, What?

That monster of a controller above is what you'll presumably be using to play Katamari Damacy and Noby Noby Boy creator Keita Takahashi's brand new party game, Tenya Wanya Teens. The game is, according to Venus Patrol, "about trying desperately to not say or do the wrong thing at the wrong time, that universal struggle to maintain the façade of normality during the awkward transition from child- to adulthood—but, more than anything, really, it's a silly party game for two players armed with sixteen buttons each."

No release date (or platform, for that matter) has been revealed yet.
