Rejoice, fans of the classic rhythm-action Patapon franchise, for your prayers have been answered. Patapon 2 Remastered hits the PlayStation Store on January 30th. It follows on from the original Patapon Remastered, which was released on the Store back in 2018.
As you might expect, Patapon 2 Remastered follows on from the story of the original. The Patapon tribe finds itself shipwrecked after a Kraken attacks its vessel. As the Patapons' god, it's your job to lead them through a strange new land as they search for their promised land of Earthend. Patapon 2 Remastered will continue the first game's mixture of quirky drum-based gameplay and adorable visuals. You can check out the trailer for Patapon 2 Remastered below:
In an official blog post, Sony Interactive Entertainment producer Nick Accordino says this is a "full 4K remaster" of the original 2008 PSP title. It'll offer over 30 missions, each of which has a different objective to fulfill. The Patapon series' signature mixture of real-time strategy, forward planning, and rhythm-based combat will be fully present and correct. You'll need to arm and position your Patapons correctly to get the maximum effect from each battle. New features exclusive to Patapon 2 include new Patapon evolutions, extra minigames, and "many more surprises", according to Accordino.

If you're yet to give Patapon Remastered a try, it's available on the Store and will cost you just $11.99.
