What we heard: What could be more fun than a diminutive alien rolling around a huge ball of sticky junk on the screen? How about a diminutive alien rolling around a huge ball of sticky junk on two screens? According to an upcoming release schedule in the latest issue of Nintendo Power, Namco's quirky hit will roll--no pun intended (OK, a little pun intended)--onto the dual-screen handheld later this year. Though the article was in Nintendo's own publication, a spokesperson for the company said it was "not our place to comment on the matter." Namco also insisted that the Nintendo Power mention of the game was unfounded. "I can assure you that Katamari Damacy for the DS is still just a rumor," said a rep. "Namco Hometek has not made any official announcement for this title for the North American market." So did the editors of Nintendo Power just make it up? Highly unlikely.
Bogus or not bogus?: Not bogus.
