'Katamari Damacy' featured in New York MOMA exhibit

"Katamari Damacy" to be included in an exhibit at New York's Museum of Modern Art.

Katamari Damacy will be part of an installation at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City, publisher Namco Bandai announced today.

The game will be part of "Century of the Child: Growing by Design," a survey of 20th-century modernist ideals on designing and developing for children. The exhibit will feature items from this "underrepresented area of design history" including video games, school architecture, clothing, and other youth-focused products.

"Namco Bandai Games' Katamari Damacy has touched countless people, from children to adults, and is truly a modern video game classic," said vice president of marketing Carlson Choi. "The inclusion of Katamari Damacy in this groundbreaking exhibit is a testament to the creative designs embodied in Namco Bandai's games and shows the importance of video games in people's lives, in addition to being a validation of video games as a modern form of interactive art."

The exhibit opened yesterday and will run until November 5th.
