Katamari Damacy, Namco's bizarre ball-rolling game, has shipped and should be available in stores today–for the lovely low price of $19.99.

Here's an excerpt from the PSX Extreme preview of Katamari Damacy:

"In a drunken stupor, King Cosmos somehow manages to cause the universe to fall apart. Instead of fixing the mess himself, he sends his son out to do it. How do you put stars back together? Well, roughly translated, Katamari Damacy means "ball of souls," so it shouldn't come as much of a surprise that the whole point of the game is to amass gigantic balls of junk so that daddy can fuse them into stars and planets."
