Patapon 3 -- a follow-up to the critically acclaimed Patapon and Patapon 2 titles -- introduces a new warrior, a Superhero Patapon, that players can use to head into musical battle, devastating opponents with deadly, rhythmic attacks. Players will go on multiplayer Quest with friends or go head-to-head on an epic four-against-four battle against other Patapon clans with network play (up to eight players).

They successfully break open the box to release the seven evil spirits! All the Patapons are turned to stone except for Hatapon. He has escaped the tragedy and finds a silver Hoshipon at the bottom of the box which gives him a new power to defeat the evil spirits: Superhero Patapon.
