game release date for PS4:
Patapon 2 Remastered, available for PS4, is a remastered version of Patapon 2, which was released in 2008 on PSP. Apart from changes in the graphics (native 1080p and dynamic 4K on PlayStation 4 Pro), it does not offer any major novelties compared to the original.
The second part of Patapons' adventures continues the plot of the previous title, in which Patapons decided to look for a new home. Unfortunately, after the sea monster's attack, the cheerful team landed on an unknown land, ruled by the Kampon tribe. Again, the heroes must fight for survival.
Our task is to help them - we must lead brave beings to battle. We do this by beating an appropriate rhythm, using buttons on the gamepad. In Patapon 2 Remastered, the authors introduced an additional easy level of difficulty and some other simplifications. The game is not too difficult, especially since death is only temporary and in case of failure, our main character is reborn after some time.
In addition, the game introduces several new units - the flying Toripon, the devastating Robopon and Mahopon which uses magic. An evolutionary tree has also been introduced - it allows players to unlock individual types of units. We can obtain a total of almost 50 rare specimens of Patapons, about 500 items and weaponry elements useful during combat in more than 80 missions.
The authors have also created a few new opponents, which, like in the first part, will be defeated by making special combinations of attacks. In many cases, we also take part in rhythmic duels of various kinds. Thanks to a large number of new elements, the game provides about 20 hours of addictive fun.
