I'd totally buy a copy or two of Keita Takahasi's Wattam if I owned a PS4 (even though I don't understand a second of its first trailer)

I know everyone else in the world who's at all interested in the PS4 is drooling over the "triple whammy" of games--the Final Fantasy VII remake, The Last Guardian and Shenmue III--that were announced at E3 2015 a couple of days ago.

I understand that, I really do, but if I were to be honest (and why wouldn't I be on my own blog?), I'd admit that I'm far more intrigued by Keita Takahasi's Wattam than I am by any of the aforementioned titles.

Which is kind of strange, as I can't say I have a single clue as to what the hell is going on in the trailer that can be watched below.

Still, I wouldn't pass up a chance to put Wattam and its weird collection of characters through their paces, as the ages-old saying goes.

Sadly, that would require me to purchase a PS4--something that isn't likely to become a reality anytime soon, if ever. If Keita and his crew of crazy game-makers (they previously developed the first two Katamari Damacy titles, after all) were to port Wattam to, say, the Vita, though, I'd be all over it like rainbow sprinkles on a frosted doughnut.

How about you fine folks? Are any of you chomping at the bit to sink your teeth into this outlandish-looking PS4 effort?

Whoa. It looks sort of like Noby Noby Boy, which was incredibly meh after Katamari Damacy. But it's cute! And...POOP! said...

Yeah, it gives me Noby Noby Vibes, too, which isn't an entirely good thing. Still, it's from Keita Takahashi, so...
