Katamari Damacy creator’s next game, Wattam, arrives this December

Get ready to make friends with poops on PS4

Wattam, the next game from Katamari Damacy and Noby Noby Boy creator Keita Takahashi, is coming to PlayStation 4 this December, Sony and publisher Annapurna Interactive revealed during its State of Play livestream presentation today.

In Wattam, players will control a variety of objects, from the green, cube-shaped mayor to cheerful flowers to smiling toilets and even a variety of multicolored, just-happy-to-be-here poo swirls. Some of those living objects will ask you do them favors, but sometimes you just link hands and do a little dance with your anthropomorphic pals. Players can make friends and reconnect objects in the world, resulting in big, confetti-spraying explosions of joy.

We’ve played Wattam a few times, and it lives up to its official description of being a game “about the joys of friendship and discovery.” You can watch a new trailer filled with la-las and giggles above.

Developer Funomena first unveiled Wattam back in 2015, and the PlayStation 4 and Windows PC game was, at one point, slated for release in 2018.
