A little later than expected, but Patapon 3 now has a release date -- a real one, this time -- and it's April 12. Over on the PlayStation Blog, the game's $19.99 price and dual PlayStation Network-and-UMD launch were revealed as well.
With this installment, you're visualized as a hero character rather than being an all-powerful off-screen entity like before. There's also expanded multiplayer functionality, and that seems to be where much of the emphasis is centered on.
Pata-Pata-Pata-Pon. You totally just read that in their voice, didn't you?
