Ideology Through Games – The Katamari Damacy Podcast

On this episode of Japan 2.0, David and Matt are once again joined by Emily, and the three of them discuss one of their favorite video game series, Katamari Damacy. With the release of OST on vinyl and the forthcoming rerelease of the game on Nintendo Switch and PC, Katamari has been on their minds as of late. They discuss how the game portrays the weird and comical aspects of Japanese daily life, the usage of cute/ugly art, and share their favorite songs from the amazing Katamari soundtrack.
