Katamari Cover Damacy

Katamari Damacy is one of the most thoroughly designed games of the last decade. Everything from the characters, props, HUD, menus, music, cutscenes to packaging, homepages, downloads and soundtracks is unified to almost an extreme extent, much more so than normally in game design. To celebrate the upcoming release of Katamari Forever on the PS3 I've put together a gallery of Katamari covers for you to enjoy.

The iconic cover for the first Katamari Damacy

Korean covers for Katamari Damacy, We♥Katamari and the American cover.

Japanese and European covers for We♥Katamari

Japanese, Korean and Western covers for the PSP game Me & My Katamari

European, Japanese and American covers for Katamari Forever on PS3

The design is carried over to the soundtracks as well. And they sound exactly as you think it looks like they sound.

Katamari Fortissimo Damacy, Katamari wa Damacy
