It has been a couple of years since Sony re-released a classic game. We had a surge a while back when the company released Patapon, and PaRappa The Rapper both boasting 4K resolutions on the PS4 Pro. Sony will be reigniting the classics once again with Patapon 2 Remastered releasing on 30 January 2020.
Sony announced Patapon 2 Remastered on the PlayStation Blog where Nick Accordino, Producer at Sony Interactive Entertainment revealed the much-loved rhythm game will be headed to PS4 this Thursday. The game is a remaster of the 2008 PSP game and has been remastered in 4K for the console.

The game features over 30 missions including hunting, escorting, and boss battles as players explore vivid environments while controlling adorable little people to the beat. As of now, the game has no PlayStation Store listing but if the original Patapon Remastered pricing is anything to go by, expect to pay R239 for Patapon 2 Remastered.
