Well, that didn't take long, did it? The original is one of the best PSP titles of this year, and at E3 2008, they unveiled gameplay for the sequel! We don't have a release date yet, but it's clear Patapon 2 will follow hot on the heels of the first title. It's a strange combination of rhythm and strategy elements, but as most of you who have tried the original already know, it works like a charm. There's nothing like leading the little Patapons into battle with those pulsating beats in the background; matching them is your key to success. Just think: all of this started way back on the original PlayStation with PaRappa the Rapper, and now it seems as if they expand on the music/rhythm genre with every passing day!
