Patapon spiritual successor Ratatan collected almost £1m of Kickstarter funding goal

The developers of Patapon's spiritual successor Ratatan are grateful to the project's donors following the successful completion of its Kickstarter campaign.

Following a successful Kickstarter campaign, Ratatan, the spiritual successor to Sony Japan Studio's famous PlayStation Portable rhythm adventure Patapon, has raised well over £1 million, well surpassing its initial aim of £100,000 for the project.

Within an hour of its introduction, the game reached its first financing goal of 20 million ($137,000 / £108,000), and it went on to raise more than 10 times that amount.

By the end of the campaign, nearly 15,000 backers had pledged over $219.3 million ($1.5 million / £1.19 million), allowing the project to meet many stretch goals.

These included creating a console version of the game and working with David Wise, a former Rare musician who composed the Donkey Kong Country series' music.

"Rarely can you directly affect the fates of the creators you care about, but this group has done that," Ratata Arts stated in a Kickstarter update issued on Monday. "You have empowered us and provided us with a fantastic opportunity." We will do our best to make this a project in which you will be glad to have taken part."

Ratatan is planning to launch in April 2025 for Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Switch, and Steam after its successful crowdfunding campaign. According to the studio, it is "actually quite far along in the production cycle and feels very confident in getting everything into the game" in time for its expected debut.

The console testing is also being considered but has not yet been confirmed, and a PC beta is scheduled and will "most likely" occur in the second half of 2019. Patapon is a rhythm-based 2D platform/action game that was originally released for the PlayStation Portable in 2007. Players command an army of charming anthropomorphic eyeballs known as "Patapons" that may be directed to march forward, attack, defend, and retreat by utilizing a sequence of drum beats.

Two sequels were released for the PSP, while the original two games were remastered in 4K for the PS4.
