Patapon Screens Depict Savage Foes, Enemy Castle

Sony has released several new screens for its upcoming rhythm action war game Patapon (PSP). The title retails in the U.S. sometime this February.

The game requires players to command their army of Patapons with timed button presses simulating the war cadence of a military percussionist. The screens show off some of game's large fantastical bosses as depicted by French pop artist Rolito.

    Looks kind of fun. For some reason the art reminds me of samurai jack.

      That's exactly what I thought of, Samurai Jack big time. I love the look of this game!!

      But yes, very disappointed that it's a rhythm game, and that it's for the psp. I wish developers would make some more traditional 2d games. There is still a market for it, even it's more budget type games.

      This also reminds me of this flash demo someone made a couple of years back that everything was a silhouette and it had what looked like a boy doing some timed jumping with gears and stuff. Looked great. Not sure if a game actually ever came of that.
