Patapon spiritual successor Ratatan wraps up Kickstarter campaign with over £1m in funding

Ratatan, the spiritual successor to Sony Japan Studio’s beloved PlayStation Portable rhythm adventure Patapon, has wrapped up its Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign, successfully amassing well over £1m – substantially above its £100,000 target – along the way.

Ratatan, if you’re unaware, is a collaboration between Ratata Arts, Tokyo Virtual Theory, and pH Studio, with Patapon creator Hiroyuki Kotani at the helm and original Patapon musician Kemmei Adach also returning. It’s described as roguelike blend of rhythm and side-scroller action in which players, either battling alone or with friends, build an army of 100 Cobun to take on foes as their march across the world of Redo continues.

Its crowdfunding campaign launched onto Kickstarter on 31st July, with the goal of raising ¥20,000,000 (approximately £109,000), but a little over a month later, it’s now wrapped up with ¥219,314,335 (around £1.2m) in the bank after contributions from 14,598 backers – apparently making it the 36th most funded video game Kickstarter of all time.
