Patapon 2 Remastered

The rhythm-based 2D action-platformer Patapon 2 Remastered is out today on PS4.

Originally released on PlayStation Portable back in 2008, Patapon 2 Remastered brings the game to PS4 for the first time. Best of all, it will take full advantage of PS4 Pro and run at 4K resolution on 4K televisions.

Also, just as important as the graphical upgrades, the game is fun to play! Gamers “take part in more than 30 missions including hunting, escort, and boss battles, and explore numerous vivid environments along the way,” according to Sony.

Here’s more on the backstory from the official PlayStation Blog, which revealed the game earlier this week:

Cut off from their Zigoton compatriots after a Kraken attacks their ship, the Patapon tribe find themselves ship-wrecked on a strange new land. As their deity, it’s your job to lead the Patapon army using a variety of rhythmic drum commands as they encounter brand new enemies, allies and a host of new bosses as they continue their search for their promised land, Earthend. Combine the various chains of drumbeats to address each unique level, leading the Patapons to victory over the enemy forces.

Patapon 2 Remastered launches exclusively on the PlayStation Store for $14.99.
