Obviously pleased with the performance of both Parappa the Rapper Remastered and LocoRoco Remastered on the PlayStation 4, Sony has announced plans to remaster two more PSP cult-hits for the superior powers of the PlayStation 4. Both Patapon and LocoRoco 2 will be joining them in full blooming 4K screen resolution thanks to the PlayStation 4 Pro’s hardware.
As for the regular PlayStation 4, these games still looks just as good.
Up first is Patapon, Sony’s goofy and innovative rhythm game from 2007. I remember when this game first hit the market, and it seemed at the time like wacky, experimental hits like this would give the PSP a fighting chance against the Nintendo DS.
Ha! That’s hindsight you’ll never want to see again! However Patapon itself holds up nicely thanks to its catchy tunes, unique music, and fun characters, and any Sony fan should give it a gander once it finally hits the PlayStation 4.
Patapon is an innovative, rhythm-based 2D platform/action game marching to PlayStation®4 with revitalized graphics output in 4K resolution and 1080p. An iconic PlayStation game, players are tasked with leading the colorful Patapons, a brave and noble tribe, through a series of epic battles against opposing armies and gigantic monsters. In a distinct gameplay twist, action and rhythm are intertwined as players utilize drumbeats to march, attack, and defend, ultimately leading the Patapon tribe to victory.
LocoRoco 2 is, of course, the sequel to the original charming physics-based platformer. It brings back all the light-hearted colors and characters of the original and simply piles content and gameplay onto it. Can’t really say no that. The sequel was just as popular as the original back in the day, giving Sony’s strange days as a handheld publisher some legitimate legacy that needs to be remember.
Check out both of these games this year when their remasters launch for the PlayStation 4.
