The number of apps and games available for Windows Phone 7 continues to grow. The folks at Windows Phone App List say there are now over 9,000 free and paid titles available from the Windows Phone 7 Marketplace. And some top tier mobile games including Angry Birds and Doodle Jump are coming soon. Now it looks like we can add I Love Katamari to that list.

Microsoft Xbox Live manager Karl Stricker says that the mobile version of Katamari Damacy is coming to Windows Phone Marketplace this Wednesday, with support for Xbox Live integration.

In case you’ve never played a Katamari Damacy game, the goal is to roll a ball around various landscapes, making the ball bigger and bigger by rolling over objects ranging in size from household objects to skyscrapers. It sounds ridiculous — and it kind of is. But it’s also a lot of fun to play.

Update: I Love Katamari is now available from the Windows Live Marketplace for $6.99.

There’s already a mobile version I Love Katamari for the iPhone and iPod touch. It’s available from the App Store for $4.99.
