The googly-eyed Patapons march to the rhythm of the drum! First released in 2007 to worldwide critical acclaim, a remastered edition is out today on PlayStation 4.

This hit series’ three games made their way into players’ hearts with their addictive blend of rhythmic drumming, strategic character development and troop composition, and of course, the characterful, lively little Patapons themselves.

So here we are again Dear Reader, on the edge of another Pata-post, a few seconds from divulging the secrets of multiplayer that Jeff so brutishly decided to amputate from last week’s post.
