Europe to get free Patapon demo

No pre-order madness here.

Sony has had a rummage down the back of the sofa and told us European gamers will get a free sampler of Patapon after all.

It goes live in the PSP Store on 21st February, and is the same demo-to-final-save taster that US fans get when pre-ordering the title from Gamestop. Ha.

Demo-to-final-save means you can transfer your saved progress across to the retail copy when it finally arrives. You also get your hands on a rare Spear of Protection to carry over, too.

Patapon is a quirky side-scrolling tactical-rhythm action something-or-other from the maker of LocoRoco. However, it is a little more complex than the latter, although just as stylish.

Patapon will be out for PSP on 22nd February. Head over to our Patapon review to find out more.
