THE PATA-NEW SCHOOL!

Patapon 2 - Toripon

Air support anyone? (Toripon)
If you remember the original concept art of Patapon 1 you’ll remember the Toripon. These bird-riders didn’t make the original cut, but now you can finally bring death from above as they administer surgical strikes upon your enemies.

Patapon 2 - Robopon

Domo Arigato Mr. Roboto! (Robopon)
Armed with robotic enhancements, these troops can pummel their way through enemies and barricades and when you get them all fevered up, they can fling boulders their way too!

Patapon 2 - Mahopan

Do you believe in Magic? (Mahopons)
Mages, Magicians, Wizards…whatever you call’em these sharp dressers have the ability to heal your troops, throw fire balls, icicles, and can even bring the thunder faster than you can say Abracadabra.

Of course the original troops of your army return, ready to dispense the pain on your command.

Pata-Post Friday – The Building Blocks of Pata-Pain

Posted: 24 Apr 2009 01:59 PM PDT

Greetings Pata-peoples. It’s Friday and as you all prepare for a well deserved weekend, here is another dose of Pata-goodness to share. On Wednesday we covered Multiplayer Hotness and how you can now battle to the beat with your friends. Now, as promised, we are going to profile the “new recruits” of the Patapon army.

One of the most appealing factors about the first Patapon was building your army up out of nothingness into an unstoppable fighting force. Picking the right soldiers for battle, setting them up with all the right weapons and equipment, and evolving them to make them stronger was key to victory. This hasn’t changed in Patapon 2, but this time players will get a revamped evolution system and some new Pata-faces…presenting:

THE PATA-OLD SCHOOL

Patapon 2 - Hatapon

Hatapon– your faithful Banner-bearer and keeper of the Mighty Drums

Patapon 2 - Yaripon

Yaripon– There are no better hunters in your crew than these masters of the spear.

Patapon 2 - Yumipon

Yumipon– Bringing the longbow action, these dudes are as bad-ass as Legolas, but better (because they have no relation to Orlando Bloom).

Patapon 2 - Tatepon

Tatepon– Your first line of defense and attack, no one has swung a sword and held a shield as well as these guys since the Govenator back in the day.

Patapon 2 - Kibapon

Kibapon– Lance in hand and their mighty steeds set to charge, they’ll knock back to the curb.

Patapon 2 - Megapon

Megapon– If you want a real sonic boom, be sure these special troops toot their horns.

Patapon 2 - Dekapon

Dekapon– The bruisers of your crew, these big fellas may not be fast, but they sure know how to club.

Combine these troops with a little strategy and a whole lot of mighty beats from your war drum, and the Pata-pain will fall like the rain.

Next Pata-post – The New Evolution System! Great weekend to all!
