Video Preview: Hands-On With Patapon

So I recently got my hands on an early preview build of Sony’s unique upcoming PSP title Patapon, and rather than typing up a formal preview I thought I’d record some of the game in action and show it to you that way. Below you’ll find a series of four clips walking through early portions of the game, covering everything from the opening tutorial stage to the first big boss fight (which you can see here too). I actually recorded everything with my PlayStation Eye PS3 camera, so the picture quality isn’t the clearest, but hopefully you can still get an idea of just how brilliant a game Patapon is.
