I never got around to checking out the first Patapon game for PSP when it was released earlier this year, but got to live it entirely through Lloyd as he quite frequently played it with the sound turned way up! Nevertheless, I found it quite catchy and still get the riffs stuck in my head from time to time (pon pon pata pon) and am looking forward to all the new content that will be available in Patapon 2.
The biggest news comes in the form of the added multiplayer mode, with up to four players being able to join in and work together. Along with the added mode, gamers can expect new units to control (the Hero, mage, robot and flier) along with almost twice the amount of levels, items and even game time. The original title boasted a game time of approximately 10 hours, the developers expect the sequel to run you 20 hours.
For those of you who played the first Patapon, don’t go and delete your save game yet! A little tidbit to keep in mind is that your save file can be used in Patapon 2 to carry over special items, gold and medals. No release date has been published as of yet, but I will keep you posted as further news comes out. I can tell you that I will definitely be giving this one a try when it comes out!
