First Look: Patapon

Perhaps we’ll find out more about Patapon soon enough, but the game looks addictive. IGN calls it a “2D Platformer that incorporates rhythm-based elements”. Two gameplay videos show that the game is almost very LocoRoco-like, not in the way of seemingly looking like a copycat, but rather a different take on the side-scroller. It almost seems like Tsutomo Kounu might even be behind it. Using rhythm as an aspect in this game looks to be catchy, as rhythm games like DDR and Guitar Hero have exceeded expectations and sold off of the shelves — considering how popular LocoRoco’s music was, it’s easy to say that SONY might already have a hit on their hands with ‘Patapon’, arriving soon for the PSP. Not yet convinced?

See a nice Patapon gameplay vid here.
See part two of the E3 montage that had better Patapon visuals and music.
View GameSpot’s forum on the whole thing, which has become active in anticipating the game.
