Patapon 3 trailer drums up co-op and vs. multiplayer

Sony continued its gamescom trailer blitz today, this time unveiling a Patapon 3 trailer showcasing new features on the much-adored PSP franchise.  The third installment will include four player co-op on all levels and four vs. four drum battle action. Also original to Patapon 3 are shiny new weapons and the ability to create new heroes.

Multiplayer should add an interesting wrinkle as well, testing friendships as you and Patapon warrior pals try to drum on key to save the world. No pressure.

Restless natives will still have to wait out a firm release date. But expect that to be sometime this year.
