Patapon Officially Priced at $19.99
Sony announced today that Patapon will be priced at a budgeted MSRP of $19.99.
By combining aspects from strategy and music rhythm games, Patapon is one of the most unique looking and playing games to come along in recent years. Going by the overwhelmingly positive previews of the game, including one from our very own Elmer Concepcion, Patapon is looking like one of the best handheld games of 2008.
Jeff Reese, Director of Software Marketing for Sony Computer Entertainment America Inc., commented, "As you can see, Patapon is really different and highly creative, a new kind of PSP experience we don't want anyone to miss. So to make it more accessible to everyone, we are happy to officially announce that we are releasing it at $19.99, lower than other new PSP games. It's a game that shouldn't get lost with some other big titles launching on the platform. It deserves your attention because it's very cool."
Now that the game is priced at $19.99, handheld gamers have no sensible reason to overlook this hidden gem. Patapon will be released on February 26th exclusively for the PSP.
