Patapon 2 Remastered Finally Arrives At PS4


Try to take your mind off recent events [Terry Jones and Kobe Bryant] with the arrival of “Patapon 2 Remastered” for PlayStation 4 on January 30, 2020 – after slightly more than a two year delay in what was originally expected as the release date back in 2017.


“Patapon 2” originally came to the PSP in 2008 (2009 in North America), as a sequel to – of course – “Patapon”, which was released on the PSP in 2007. “Patapon” is Japanese for marching [“pata”] drumming [“pon”] and features rhythm gameplay. You play as an omnipresent being who commands tiny creatures by playing drums. You must strike each drum in time with the music to effectively command your Patapon tribe.


“Patapon 2 Remastered” now has 4K visuals as players lead the Patapons into an unfamiliar land, through a series of battles against the opposing army and gigantic monsters.


“Patapon 2 Remastered” features approximately 80 missions in a variety of new 2D environments where players can outfit their Patapon army, collect resources, and grow their tribe. Additionally, there are new characters in “Patapon 2 Remastered” –  bird riders [Toripon], robots [Robopon] and magicians [Mahopon] – as well as a fully customizable new warrior: Hero Patapon.


Other features in “Patapon 2 Remastered” include…


  • Rhythm and Action Collide – Master all eight drum rhythms including the new jump command, power up command and party command. Combine the various chains of drumbeats for each unique level, leading the Patapons to victory over the masked Karmens.
  • Three Additional Commands and Miracles – More drumbeat commands allow for different tactics and gameplay action.
  • Mission Variety – Take part in specific missions including hunting, escort, and boss battles. Players will discover up to 22 bosses and access hundreds of new items and weapons.
  • Mini-Games – Seven music-based mini-games allow players to earn bonuses and upgrades to further customize the Patapon warriors.
