Roll On Beautiful Katamari

Keita Takahashi has quit. The man behind the most colorful, strange, and gentle games I've ever played (Katamari Damacy, Noby Noby Boy) is moving on.

And I am glad.

I loved this guy's work and believe that his artistic contributions would be great for a future filled with gray colored shooters and sterile match-3s, but its no secret that Takahashi really didn't like making games much. This is a guy who should be out making toddler toys. He has already completed work on a "next gen" children's playground and recently been contracted to help restore an amusement park in the UK.

*Edit to add quote*
In an August interview with the Official PlayStation Magazine, the game designer said, "At E3 I saw people putting on speeches but I thought the future seemed a bit dark. The 3D games didn't spark my interest. I think motion control's a bit old now."
