Patapon 3: The Legend Returns

Patapon 3 for PSP (PSN and UMD)

It’s been a little over a year since the Patapon forces engaged in an all out blitz offensive against the Karmen. Many an eye was lost, but the brave monocular warriors pushed through courageously… until they reached the most evil demon warrior this side of Patapolis… so what happened after that intense, life-changing battle at the end of Patapon 2?

Victorious and jubilant from their conquests, they pushed on until they came across a gigantic vessel, locked with ancient magic and scribed up it an ominous message:

Heed this warning mortal beings.

Destruction and darkness locked within.

Run away and don’t look back.

Lest you wish for seven evils to attack!

Together they stabbed, poked and kicked until the lock gave way in a thunderous explosion. Before the Patapon tribe could gather the severity of their actions, they were all turned to the hardest of stones. .. all but one lone brave Patapon, Hatapon, the flag bearer.

This is where we rejoin the Patapon saga, on a dark and desolate battle field, surrounded by a sea of stone soldiers and a new evil threatening the very existence of the Patapon world.

From the vessel appears Silver Hoshipon (of similar appearance to a Patapon, but with a star-shaped body, and possessed of magical powers). Silver Hoshipon reawakens three fearless warriors and summons YOU, the Almighty, from the heavens. Reincarnated in the body of a Hero, the future of the Patapon tribe rests on your shoulders. Together with your trusted warriors Ton, Chin and Kan, you are the last hope of the Patapon tribe.

Command the sacred drums, follow the rhythm of the earth, march into battle and banish the dark forces forever. Soon your PSP will sing the hypnotizing battle cry we’ve all grown to love: Pata-Pata-Pata-Pon!

The legend has returned!

I have no idea why I don’t like this game.

Nice, but is there any chance of a Patapon Port for PS3 as a PSN title.
And keep the original 2D graphics (only in HD) so then it would be fun to Battle online and level up your troops on a HDTV using a Dualshock 3.
oh and you can merege all three stories into the Game.

Patapon HD could be a good name suggestion :)

PSN version even could use Move to imitate drumming ;). In the end I think Patapon is best suited for portable system. Game is ideal for short, quick sessions.

What poster no. 2 said please!!

So, will this be out on the same week as the US version (12th April)?

PS3 release of Patapon (1-3) would be nothing short of BRILLIANT!!!!!

Ok, enough with the shouting. I notice you’re not talking release date and pricing like the US blog – do you not know these details yet or what’s up with that?

Thanks for not giving us a release date -_-

I need this for my Ps3! (and the other two too of course!)

I also need this for Xperia Play if I’m gonna buy that.

I know I’m demanding, but I’ll give you a lot of money for it!

Why no release date or Price?


And the release date is??????


Patapon on PS3, I am disappointed that this hasn’t happened, yet.

Good to see something of patapon but what was the point of this post? And where is the release date? And wasnt patapon 2 out more like 2 years ago?

oh, maybe the year since patapon2 is in game time.

I would love to play this or even the first or second , please bring these games to the ps3 as I will never buy a psp regardless of the game – I want to play games on a big telly not a ditty little screen

considering both minis and ps1 games are playable on both psp and ps3 why can’t psp games be played on both?

psp games on ps3 sounds good but sony would sell even fewer psps. Maybe the could charge £30 for an emulator, or wait for NGP to make psp games for psp obsolete, in a similar way that we have ps1 classics we could have psp classics.
