An unfortunate accident has left the King
of All Cosmos unconscious. Panicked, the Prince and his cousins quickly
construct RoboKing to temporarily replace the King of All Cosmos as he
recovers. However, as soon as he is turned on, RoboKing goes haywire,

return all the missing celestial bodies back into the sky.
The sequel to the immensely popular
Katamari series, Katamari Forever tasks players to roll up
as many everyday objects as possible within a time limit set by the Prince’s
father, the King of All Cosmos. As more objects are rolled up, your

Katamari game to date. In addition to all the rolling around, the
Prince has been practicing his royal jumping abilities. Using the PS3’s
SixAxis controls, the Prince is now able to hop over large objects that
stand in his way. The new Prince Hop opens up the world of Katamari
