Keita Takahashi’s Wattam Receives New Trailer, Releases In December

by Sage Ashford

Funomena and Annapurna Interactive showed off a new trailer for Wattam, during Sony’s State of Play video. More from Annapurna Interactive below:

Wattam (ˈwät-ˈtäm)
n.
A combination of the Japanese word (wa) and the Tamil word (vattam) for circle.

Mayor is alone in a dark world with no memories, too sad to realize his dear friends are still nearby. However, an unexpected reunion helps him remember the joy in simply grabbing a friend by the hand and running off to adventure together.

Join Mayor as he reunites with new and old friends and discover the forgotten joy of their world. Take control of a cast of characters by yourself or with a friend, transform into fruits & poops, climb to new heights, laugh, cry, tumble, and soar beyond the differences of words and thoughts to bring everyone together. Learn to have fun again!

Wattam is coming from Keita Takahashi, the Japanese game designer previously known for the massively popular Katamari Damacy. As Sony begins to close the door on the PS4 era, it’s good they’re not closing the door on some of the system’s weirder moments.  The PlayStation 4 when it started out bolstered it’s line-up with games like OctoDad and other indie titles that weren’t the typical shootbang or action-oriented games.  90+ million consoles sold later, it’s good they continue to respect that gaming can always be more than one thing.

Wattam will release both for PlayStation 4, and PC in December.
