As you can see from the awesomely hastily scribbled out and corrected dates on Noby Noby Boy‘s official site o–o, the arrival of the game, which was previously due in just one week from today (which would have explained the involuntary heart palpitations that’d been growing over the past few days) has now been pushed back by three weeks to just after Valentine’s Day: Thursday, February 19th.

The reason, Namco Bandai politely explained, is simply “in order to provide better quality.”

Still confused as to what Katamari creator Keita Takahashi is trying to accomplish with his PS3 downloadable game and non-game? Have a look at my first writeup from mid-December, where I tried to weave all the loose threads Takahashi laid down in 2007 at the game’s first live debut at Nottingham’s GameCity festival — I think, bolstered by subsequent video footage and details that have been released since, that I might’ve been onto something.

    From what I’ve gathered the game ends up kind of being like snake, you just go around eating stuff.
