The latest issue of Famitsu
reveals two new titles for Japan's DSiWare download service, both from Namco Bandai. Korogashi Puzzle Katamari Damacy
is a falling-block puzzle game starring the cast of Namco's classic rolling-stuff-up game, seemingly involving animals between the blocks and a black hole in the distance. In classic Katamari
style, we have no idea. But it says Katamari Damacy
in the title, so we're inclined to FREAK OUT -- while also being a bit sad about the milking of the series. Korogashi Puzzle Katamari Damacy
will be out in Japan on March 25 for 500 Nintendo Points.
In more easily-accessible news, Famitsu
also revealed two more Mr. Driller
games. Mr. Driller: Drill Spirits
was Namco's first DS game; now the company is returning to the well for its inaugural DSiWare title, and throwing in a WiiWare version as well! Mr. Driller
(whose full title we can't read in the Famitsu
scan) includes a mission mode, time attack, and a Dristone mode, featuring less oxygen to pick up, and more special powerup items around the stage. This mode was removed from the North American release of Drill Spirits.
The game comes out in Japan next Wednesday for 800 Points!Mr. Driller World
looks like a basic implementation of Mr. Driller
on WiiWare, with a tutorial mode and some kind of "simple" play -- possibly a new control scheme. It'll be out Tuesday in Japan, also for 800 Points.
