Sony has announced
a release date for the highly anticipated PSP title Patapon 3
. The game will be launching to both retail and the PlayStation Network on April 12, 2011 for $19.99.
This time around, the Patapon have come across a large vessel which is locked up by ancient magic. The vessel was inscribed with an ominous warning to anyone who may consider opening it, but the Patapon just don’t listen. The curious little creatures cracked the seal and were all turned to stone, with the exception of one, lonely Patapon: Hatapon the Flag Bearer. Now it is up to this lone soldier to save the rest of the Patapon.
