has let us know on the PlayStation Blog that the Patapon 2 PSP demo has arrived today.
To quote: The long-awaited much-anticipated PlayStation Network Patapon 2 Demo has been released for mass consumption (i.e. everyone!), so set your PSPs to download and get ready for the war-tastic ethereal musical bliss known as Patapon 2.
What you get, get, get with this fantastic free download is five levels of pure greatness full of Hero Patapon, Patagate, Mater the Tree of Life and all the evolution you can shake a Darwin-sized stick at.
So let's rewind a bit: back in the glorious days of Patapon 1, this majestic perennial (above) was the birthing (and reviving) spot of all Patapon warriors. If you had a couple of rare items and coffers full of ka-ching, you could grow yourself some Rarepons...but it was a bit of a gamble.
Enter Patapon 2, and introducing Mater 2.0, now with Evolution System! It's Patapon creation and reanimation minus the guess work! With the new Evolution System you can clearly see your Patapon's potential and work towards getting him there.
The Evolution System can be simplified into two separate portions: transformation and brawn. The transformation portion is fairly straightforward and linear.
