Patapon coming to America in February 2008

Sony has announced today that the upcoming rhythm/action game Patapon will be making its way to America in February of next year. We played the game at the Tokyo Game Show and thought it was great fun with a lot of potential. The game promises to expand on the basic idea of pressing the right button at the right time by providing customizable characters via upgradable weapons and shields. We very much look forward to this game's release in the new year.

"Patapon is a unique experience for gamers of all ages because it combines two key forms of entertainment: rhythm and music, and stellar platforming action," said Jeff Reese, director, software marketing, SCEA. "Music is a huge part of the PSP's multifunctional feature set, and we are excited to deliver a new genre of music and action gaming that further adds depth to the PSP software lineup."

Check out the first English screenshots in our new gallery:
