'Patapon 3' (PSP) - New Screens

by Rainier on March 7, 2011 @ 5:00 a.m. PST

Patapon 3 introduces a new warrior, a Superhero Patapon, that players can use to head into musical battle, devastating opponents with deadly, rhythmic attacks.

It’s been a little over a year since the Patapons forces, led by the masked Hero Patapon engaged in an all-out blitz offensive against the Karmen forces. Many an eye was lost, but the brave mono-ocular 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, the Patapon pushed on until they came across an 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!

But, to their misfortune, the Patapon tribe’s newfound arrogance got the best of them. Together they stabbed, poked and kicked until the lock gave way in a thunderous explosion. Before the Patapon 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. As there are no troops left, you the Mighty One, will fuse your essence with a fallen soldier and create a brand new hero, the Uberhero Patapon!
