The King and Prince return in the sequel to one of the most unique, simple and addictive games released in 2004 -Katamari Damacy. Minna Daisuki Katamari Damacy, which translates to "Everyone loves Katamary Damacy", has an entirely new and uniquely bizzare story. One day, the Prince of All Cosmos receives a request from a fan.

The objective of the game is to have the Prince of All Cosmos answer the fan's request, which will make more fans (stages) appear until the whole game is mobbed with fans. In Minna Daisuki Katamari Damacy's single-player mode, each of the stages has different objectives, such as making the lump as large as possible with a limited number of objects, making the lump larger than a given size, or picking up certain objects on the field.

The gameplay and controls remain as the original Katamari Damacy, with the addition of a "torso" present available, so the Prince can wear both headgear and shirts. New levels include Underwater (swim with the fishes to pick up undersea life), Zoo (pick up all the animals you can!), Classroom (pick up school supplies and students!), and Race (where you have to pick up people racing in cars).
