Patapon 3 Release Date Announced

Sony has announced the North American release date for the highly anticipated Patapon 3. The game will be released on April 12th for $19.99. The game will be available on UMD in addition to the PSN. Unfortunately, a European release date has not been announced yet.

  3. Loved the design and visuals of the first one, but couldn’t get into the gameplay for the life of me. Will keep an eye out for a demo when it’s due, though…

  4. This would be perfect on the ngp with touchscreen and touchpad.

  5. 8 players for Adhoc Party? how can adhoc Party cope with that! it isn’t hasn’t even been updated (T~T). Can’t see infrastructure being any good…
