Namco High, The Namco Character Dating Sim, Has A Katamari Cousin In It

By Spencer . July 22, 2013 . 2:02am

If you haven’t heard, there is a dating sim in the works where you can date different Namco characters. Namco High is a project from Shifty Look, makers of the Wonder Momo and Bravoman web comics, is developing the game.



Namco High will also have an unnamed Katamari cousin in it. That’s concept art for the six possible cousins. During the Shifty Look panel, fans said they liked "E" the best. My vote is for "C". Who do you guys like and want to hang out with at Namco High?

    Wait, will the Lord of All Cosmos that winds up in the game become that lecher friend that knows all the stats and phone numbers of all of the potential mates?

    • Göran Isacson

      I would be okay with this development. I would be SO okay with this development.

  • Lumi

    Will this be a NPC or a datable character?

    • Enma_Kozato

      Perhaps they’ll be the NPC you end up with in the event you don’t manage to date anyone.

      • Virevolte

        …such a frightening thought.

      • Craig Mikucki

        Here is to hoping they will be just like Kenji.

    • Haseyo

      They’re like the size of your pinky D:

  • JustThisOne

    I’d like to chill with D. He seems like the one that would most likely bust through your doors screaming, “oh my god, oh my god, OH MY GOD” then spew some news.

  • Tonton Ramos

    Who cares I’m dating the queen!

  • A or D would be my picks.

  • Azurelegance

    so this thing is … actually happening? lol oTL

  • F looks like he knows how to have a good time!

  • LightGenx

    I would date them all so hard. B looks like a fun hang.

  • KLONOA KLONOA KLONOA. On note of this topic, id go E. He looks cool

  • Solace Shimizu

    F looks like Tingle.

  • Spirit Macardi

    I’m hoping this concept art isn’t reflective of the art in the game itself. It certainly doesn’t seem fitting for a dating sim.

    • Craig Mikucki

      If it is being made my the shifty look people, that is more than likely the case.

      • Spirit Macardi

        Look at the Klonoa comic though; they got professional manga artist Hitoshi Ariga to illustrate it.

        • Craig Mikucki

          I didn’t imply that was a bad thing. It is just they have a lot of different styles for all of their comics. This style right here looks great for the Katamari character. Though I will admit, if the whole game was in THIS style, it wouldn’t look so great. But I get the feelings they are not afraid to have characters with different art styles.

    • Dexward
