Recently, Sony interviewed Patapon Producer Hiroyuki Kotani, and Sound Designer Kemmei Adachi. During the meeting, the co-creators of Patapon discussed the inspiration for the game, the identity of the theme song’s singer as well as revealing several of the game’s secrets. Additionally, Sony is providing an opportunity for fans to acquire a free dynamic Patapon theme.
Currently, a Patapon Remastered theme is available on the PlayStation Store for $1.99. However, if you would like to save yourself a couple of bucks, you will need to enter a valid email address in the widget included in the PlayStation Blog article as well as name one of the War Drums in Patapon. Once you complete that, you will receive a code to redeem your prize.
Since this is a promotion on the North American blog, the code is likely to be only for the North American PlayStation Store. Yet, you can still redeem it with a North American account and then use it with any other account you have on your PS4 once installed, as long as it’s set as the primary console.
Interestingly, the theme changes according to the season indicated by the date on your PS4’s clock.
Originally released in 2007 as a PlayStation Portable title, Patapon is a rhythm-based 2D platform/action game developed by Pyramid, produced by SIE Japan Studio and published by Sony. Upon its release, Patapon received critical acclaim, with visuals and the game’s music receiving high praise from critics. Yesterday, the game was digitally-released on the PlayStation 4 for $14.99.
