Patapon 3 taps onto PSP April 12

"Third installment in Sony Japan's highly stylized rhythm action title available as UMD or PSN download for $20."

After taking 2010 off, Sony is set to bring its Patapon franchise back to the PSP this year. Today, the publisher revealed through the PlayStation Blog that Patapon 3 will be available for the PSP in both UMD and digital formats beginning April 12 for $20.

The Patapon tribe's last hope lies with the Mighty One.

The Patapon tribe's last hope lies with the Mighty One.

As with its two highly regarded predecessors, Patapon 3 follows the rhythmic pursuits of a belligerent tribal warband intent on slaying beasts as mythical as themselves, using a variety of primitive weapons. Gameplay is heavily influenced by the rhythm genre, in that actions in the game--such as advancing, retreating, blocking, and attacking--are accomplished by hitting an appropriate combination of buttons in time with the in-game soundtrack.

Patapon 3 features a slightly darker narrative than its predecessors, in that it takes place after all but one of the tribe was turned to stone.
