Late last night, Sony Interactive Entertainment released some new gameplay demo footage of Patapon Remastered that was captured during E3 2017, featuring President of Sony’s Worldwide Studios Shuhei Yoshida.
Announced back at PSX 2016, Patapon Remastered is a PS4 remastering of Patapon, a PSP rhythm/action/platformer game, that first released in 2007, and quickly became a cult-hit.
In the game players are tasked with leading the colorful Patapons, a “brave and noble tribe,” through a series of epic battles against gigantic monsters and opposing armies. Gameplay wise, the game is a twist between action and rhythm where players utilize drumbeats to march, attack, and defend the Patapon to victory.
The following story overview of the game is provided:
For years the Patapon tribe has lived in the desolate frontier, driven from their home by the evil Zigoton army. Behind the Patapons’ cute exterior, lies a fierce warrior spirit that can only be commanded by the beat of their God’s war drum. They wait for the day that the “Almighty” will return, to lead them against their enemies and bring them back to their homeland. Finally, their wait has come to an end as the drums of war are heard once again.
Patapon Remastered will notably feature 4K support, for some crisp lookin’ Patapons.
Patapon Remastered is set to release sometime this summer for $14.99 USD. Below, you can view the new demo gameplay footage. Additionally, you can check out the game’s most recent batch of screenshots that were unveiled during E3 2017 also.
