Patapon 2 follows the Patapon tribe separated from their Zigaton compatriots. They arrive on a strange new island and must search for Earthend while fighting through mysterious new enemies and creatures.

The original Patapon came to PS4 earlier this year. Like Patapon 2 Remastered, it features improved visuals and 4K support on PlayStation 4 Pro.
