While some still await the May 5th official US release of Patapon 2, let's take a look at the big new twist that's gonna lead the Patapon charge - The Patapon Hero. This little guy packs more power than any of his little friends, and putting the team into Fever will definitely put the hurt with every Pon-Pon-Pata-Pon.
While the hero is definitely not an angry little green Nicktoon, it does give us something more to talk about. The Hero Patapon has customizable attacks and appearances, as well as level-up-able powers. His attacks and looks vary with a change of his mask, each coming with different properties affecting his attack, defense, speed, etc. You can also morph the little guy into any type of Patapon, like a Yaripon or a Toripon, to suit the style of your needs.
Because the Hero is always leading the charge, he'll also be charging into truckloads of punishment from the enemy. Luckily, the guy's a freakin' tank - he can take it. But if he does take a little too much, he will be taken out of commission for a while until you can create enough diamonds to bring him back.
About the masks, there's gonna be another post on that next week, so keep checking back with us.
