Namco Bandai's junk-rolling Prince has been pegged to star in a brand new Katamari game for Sony's PS Vita. Unveiled under its working title, Katamari Damacy, the portable entry will be a launch title for the PS Vita and utilize its front and rear touch sensors to introduce new features to the long running franchise.

 The game was revealed at TGS 2011, along with this odd-ball trailer introducing Katamari Damacy's new 'Stretch' and 'Squeeze' abilities:

“One of the coolest new features is the ability to use the rear touch pad of the PS Vita to S-T-R-E-T-C-H and SQUEEZE that katamari both horizontally and vertically to pick the world around you in ways never before done in a Katamari game,” wrote Namco Bandai's Rich Bantegui on the US PlayStation Blog. “You’ll be rolling up everything from the tiniest of ants to the enormous masses of Earth like Mount Fuji and BEYOND!”

Namco Bandai also released a collection of screenshots demonstrating the touch sensitive feature in the actual game, which we've lovingly rolled into the gallery below.

    Awwwwwww man! I have to buy a Vita because of this game. I only own both PS2 ones, PSP, 360, Ps3 and even Ipod Touch.

    I always wanted to like these games, but I could never get accustomed to the controls.

    Sure hope it doesn't come with those flow-breaking load times during gameplay, like the PSP version... I didn't like that it had to work in increments.
