Katamari creator's new game

Nobi Nobi Boy for PS3.

Namco Bandai has revealed a new game from the creator of Katamari Damacy, Keita Takahashi.

It's called Nobi Nobi Boy, according to IGN, and revolves around a worm-like character who appears to stretch and grow - Nobi can mean "to stretch" in Japanese, apparently. What can it mean in English, readers?

So far only artwork has been released, but the style seems familiar and friendly.

Takahashi's whereabouts have been questioned ever since his name failed to be associated with Beautiful Katamari, the first next-generation rolly-action-puzzle-collect-'em-up.

We'll be keeping our news-ears peeled for more details on Nobi Nobi Boy, and will let you know when anything turns up.

Until then, you can get a look at the trio of art-shots released at the PlayStation Premier event in Japan.
