Patapon 3 trailer

Sony's quirky rhythm action PSP game goes multiplayer

We love Patapon. It's a bit mental and can get tedious at times, but the funky beats that emit from our PSP as we order out little minions to battle just stick with us for weeks after playing.

The series is now on its third game and this one's looking big. It's the same gameplay idea - you tap different combinations of buttons to the rhythm of the background track, with each button sequence giving different orders to your fighters who battle through side-scrolling levels full of beasts.

Only this time you've got new enemies to fight, the ability to create your own Hero fighters, and best of all extensive multiplayer features including four-player co-op and four-on-four vs. play.

All is revealed in the video below:
