If you scroll right up to the search box above and enter the word Patapon, you’ll notice that the last directly related news was the release of the game’s demo back in July. That was more than six months ago and we haven’t heard anything since then! I for one had completely forgotten about it. So, SCE pretty much owed us some good news regarding the game.

That news came today with the announcement of the games North American release date. The next entry in the cult-loved and obscure rhythm game will hit stores on April 17th for just $20. It isn’t as though the price matters because series fans would probably have paid $1000 for it. Patapon 3, like the other games in the series, will be PSP exclusive.
