Hey patapon fans! The big day has finally arrived! Patapon 3 is finally here! We’ve got loads and loads of new features and content (its all so new and so fun!).

Available as both umd and as a PSN download (wallet friendly price of 19.99), this new chapter in the patapon saga will throw you into massive online battles, cooperative and competitive, crazy single player adventures and some of the most intense rhythm/action warfare your PSP has ever experienced.

Every game will come with a complementary digital guide – giving you much needed tips for when the action gets too intense for your beat matching skills. If this is not enough for you – then here’s something that will surely make your Tuesday: free stuff.

That’s right kids, for a limited time only, we’ll be giving away a stylish Bald Cap helm. This diligent helm stays with you through thick and thin. Reflects sun beams for increased burn rate. This voucher code will entitle you to this special item for your Patapon giving you an added advantage in combat. Once redeemed be sure to equip this item in the headquarters before you deploy!

The code is: JCAF-CENE-ECN4
This code can be redeemed for a limited time only & available while supplies last so don’t delay!

So see there you go: digital strategy guide, free stuff, online gameplay, musical warfare and more evil bosses than you can shake a stick at. See you kids online!

Cool! Thanks for the code Chris! Like you said at the Patapon 3 and Shooter 2 meet-up, I might have to go over my previous play time from Patapon 2 on this one. Ok, you’re going to have to excuse me, I have to say goodbye to my LIFE.


+ XMbeaner on April 12th, 2011 at 11:19 am said:

More like PataPwn!


+ banok on April 12th, 2011 at 11:22 am said:

Oh and one more thing, how big is the download?


+ Vocor_Kane on April 12th, 2011 at 11:29 am said:

I have this one request: Please bring Patapon to the PS3! I would LOVE to play Patapon, but I just don’t play my PSP anymore.


+ The_Apprentice on April 12th, 2011 at 11:41 am said:

I’m considering buying this because of the online play… but it will be my first Patapon game.
Does it make sense to get this? Or should I play the first 2 for story/lore etc.


+ Ethereal on April 12th, 2011 at 11:53 am said:

Cool! Thanks for the free stuff!


+ k1llabeastie on April 12th, 2011 at 11:59 am said:

Shame I don’t have a PSP :(


+ rmartinez10 on April 12th, 2011 at 12:09 pm said:

Would love to get this game, since the other two were loads of fun, but my PSP (along with Patapon and Patapon 2) was recently stolen. Gutted.

+ ursinhomalvado on April 12th, 2011 at 12:17 pm said:

I really want Patapon playable with my PS3. I think the game will work nicelly on a big screen.


+ cywulf21 on April 12th, 2011 at 12:26 pm said:

For anyone asking about the previous 2 patapon games i say just get thd second one. Its a must have. One is ok but 2 has all the same plus a lot of other good stuff.


+ kivi95 on April 12th, 2011 at 12:28 pm said:

+ PoisenOak on April 12th, 2011 at 12:31 pm said:

Why there is no Patapon love for Playstation 3?


+ izzygman on April 12th, 2011 at 2:49 pm said:

never mind its been added. but to my surprise… the reason the game is so cheap is…. you have to pay an extra 10 dollars to play and interact online

    Hi Izzyman… your UMD copy should have a voucher code to enable online play. All new copies of Patapon 3 have one! Make sure to check all the paperwork that comes with your game…


+ proskatercam on April 12th, 2011 at 2:50 pm said:

@24, that’s LBP PSP.


+ excaliber45 on April 12th, 2011 at 3:23 pm said:

Love these games! Now all we need are Patapon avatars hint hint


+ ebbhead1991 on April 12th, 2011 at 4:52 pm said:

Hey, is the online multiplayer still Infrastructure mode like the earlier demo? Thank you Sony for still dedicating servers to PSP games!


+ ShadowOfEden on April 12th, 2011 at 5:22 pm said:

The extra 10$ is only if you buy the game used. At that price, there is just no reason to ever buy it used.


+ NeoRaidenX on April 12th, 2011 at 6:30 pm said:

While supplies last? On a digital download? One of the few benefits of digital downloads is an infinite stock. But suddenly we have a supply? This is why digital downloads will never take off.


+ manzoor47 on April 12th, 2011 at 6:32 pm said:

plz bring this to PS3!


+ pacocordera on April 13th, 2011 at 6:19 am said:

got the game on the first day nd im borowin my friends psp cuz my screen got crackd, evn tho evrythin els works on it, its hateful how tht happnd, but still! nd ima play it today, digital download is about 675 MB nd the online pay for 10 dollars in only if u got the game without the onlin use nd it would be worth less thn too, most copies genarly already come with online play :D

cant wait to play!! PON PON PATA PON

ARRRGGHH, I haven’t gotten back to finishing Patapon 2. I love these games. I think my PS3 is going to have to be put on hold while I dive into Patapon again. PATA-PATA-PATA-PON!!!


+ marlyt on April 13th, 2011 at 7:36 am said:

Patapon 3 is absotively freaking awesome!!! It’s very different and for the better I say. I’m just still a little miffed that the pre-order bonuses were scrapped when it got delayed. It would’ve been epic to have Patapon ringtones. GOTY on PSP easily. Thank God for Japan Studios.


+ marlyt on April 13th, 2011 at 7:38 am said:

@ #28

Any way you buy it new online is included. That’s only if you pick p a used UMD. Best value in gaming.


+ Ecks on April 13th, 2011 at 6:59 pm said:

I’m glad they decided to release Patapon 3 on UMD as well as PSN. The uncertainty with the Patapon 2 launch, being PSN only, made me put off buying it. Eventually, I saw it did come out on UMD! I buy a lot of PSN titles, but I still like the option of getting a game on physical media if possible. Hard drives get full, and redownloading stuff sucks.

where to enter the code JCAF-CENE-ECN4?
