168w ago - Sony Senior Social Media Specialist Sid Shuman has shared a Patapon 3 PSP Q&A with Hiroyuki Kotani today, revealing that the PSN title will be more epic with multiplayer support.
To quote: In addition to Patapon 3's better-known enhancements – the tough-as-nails Super Hero Patapons, approximately 80 levels, the Pata-text chat system – the topic of multiplayer gameplay remains something of a mystery.
So while at the Tokyo Game Show, I jumped at the chance to speak with Hiroyuki Kotani, better known as the director of the Patapon series, to touch upon more details for his upcoming PSP rhythm-action game.
I was particularly interested in how the new online multiplayer-centric gameplay would impact the game, as well as what new challenges the Patapons will face in their strange new surroundings.
Sid Shuman: Patapon 3's visual style looks more sophisticated, how have you evolved the art style?
Hiroyuki Kotani, Director, Patapon 3: Along with the more epic theme, we changed the graphical style not only for the Superhero Patapon, but also for the backgrounds. The backgrounds in the previous games looked more flat and two-dimensional. But now in Patapon 3 you can feel much more atmosphere – it's both more fantastic and more realistic.
