Patapon 3 sticks with the mind-stretching rhythm controlled battle strategy, but takes things online for their new global multiplayer.

Patapon 3 is a rhythm action real time strategy game than still needs to be played to be understood. The third iteration combines a new chapter in the saga, new character units plus an all new online multiplayer mode - as opposed to the local Wi-Fi multiplayer of Patapon 2.

If you haven't played it before, the Patapons a warmongering tribe that dance, sing, and pillage their way from left to right of the screen. You control their advance by triggering attacks with different button-pressing rhythms. It's not a million miles away from Swords and Soldiers on Wii-ware, just with more music controlled action and fewer Vikings.

There is a demo is available to try from Tuesday, July 6th from the PlayStation Store.
