Keita Takahashi, the creator behind the wonderfully weird world of Katamari Damacy, is back with a new video game called Wattam.

The new PlayStation 4 game released a two-minute preview and it's pretty bizarre. Players start off as a normal object (for example, a tree) with an expressive personality. Once ten objects are linked, they explode colorfully into the sky into "the most kawaii way possible," noted a YouTube commenter.

Wattam has been in development for more than two years, so fans are excited. They'll be treated to a preview at next month's E3. It's scheduled to be released in early 2016.
