    It took me a while to get Patapon going, so I decided to help you guys with walkthrough to get you started.
    I just took a lot of screenshots of a single run from the start to a stage I think you can go on by yourself.

    Try to follow; I added remarks were they were needed.


    Ok – this is what you see when you start the game:







    Here select “start” the first time and “continue” the next time you start the game.



    After you select new you see a the story (in Japanese of course):












    Here you need to move the quill pen to the writing at the bottom and press “x” (see the next pic)



    The story goes on for a while:











    Now you can guess you need to press “PON” – circle until the sun comes out:









    Here you get the “PATA” sound – the square button







    Here you get your first drum rhythm – PATA PATA PATA PON – you need to press the button in the correct order, in a constant speed, not too fast, so press – “square square square circle” until you get it right. Practice.





    Move on and on, meet friends along the way until you reach the end point.





















    I guess you shouldn’t stop when you get to this point…











    Here you go. Nice work!






    Now the main yard in presented:







    They make you write your name in Japanese, I don’t know Japanese so I just press the “start” button.


    Here move to the top option to save. (This screen appears a lot, the top is always “confirm” and the bottom always “cancel”)



    I don’t have a clue what the guys are saying but I don’t care.


    You need to press “X” until the Indian will guide you to the “headquarters”




    This is the “headquarters”, we will go in – but first lets save. Press the “select” button to get to the save menu. Never press the “start” button – start is for “restart” in this screen.


    OK – after you press the “select” button – you see once more the “confirm” screen, top option is always “confirm” and the bottom is always “cancel”


    This is the normal save screen that you know from all the other PSP games – just in Japanese




    OK – we saved the game – we won’t have to see the story ever again (only if we crate a walkthrough or something like that).

    Back to the “headquarters” – we need to hear some more information from the Indian.




    Press “X” to enter the “headquarters” after the Indian finishes.


    We need to select a mission – we only have one mission for now – hunting mission for now.
    In a hunting mission we need to kill.
    You get materials (mainly meet) and money.
    You can’t get killed in hunting missions.
    Press “X”.


    Now we are in the “equip” window, here we can “equip” the different squads with weapons, reorder the unit, kill\remove members and add magic to the leader (the one carrying the pole).
    Just to learn it - select a unit with the “select” button.


    Here we can select the squad member to equip or delete.
    Triangle will delete the member. This is how it looks – don’t do it…:


    You can select the equipment type, for this squad type you can equip a hat or a weapon.


    I move with the down arrow to the weapon. And select it by pressing “X” to see options.
    There are no other weapons to equip so I exit this screen with a the “circle” button.


    You can remove (not delete) the whole squad by pressing triangle.


    Reselect with the “X” button then it will reappear.

    OK, when you see this:


    Press the “start” button to start the mission.

    The Indian say goodbye.


    Loading.


    Some more story.



    OK – this is good, now we learn a new drum rhythm – PON PON PATA PON– you need to press the button in the correct order, in a constant speed, not too fast, so press – “circle circle square circle”.
    The first rhythm meant “move forword”.
    This rhythm means “attack”.





    Attack the animals, I recommend doing one move, then 2 attacks, one move then 2 attacks, and over and over until the finish.
    If you kill one animal – the mission will be completed.
























    Nice work!







    Now you learn about a new building – the “inventory”




    Enter it by pressing “X”


    Here you see all the items you have but only view them – you can’t do anything here except viewing.
    You can also see the amount of coins you have – where it says “74” at the top right.


    OK, Press a lot of on the “R” button to get back to the headquarters and press “X” to enter.


    Inside select the right mission – the one with the sward next to it.


    Press “start” button to start the mission.






    Kill them all.



    This guy will help us. He has an axe.





























    He is leaving, but after he is gone we will be able to create more axe people like him – so no worries.



    Yes, he turns into a butterfly, strange, I know, Japanese – go figure…











    Nice work!






    The Indian now shows us the “troops creator” – with this device you can create new man to your squad.
    Also – it revives dead troops – so if you got dead after a mission – come here and press “X”



    For now we will press “X” to see a man revived, this man is the minigame man, he will walk to the left after he is created.









    He is gone – lets go left with the “L” button to see the new minigame we got



    Here it is. This guy tells you a story, press a lot of “X” to move on.




    Each game cost you meet, you can get more meat at the hunting mission, for now we will select one of the meat we have.


    Move up to confirm.



    Press “X” until the tree finishes its story.











    The game begins, in this game you need to tap the circle button to the rhythm the tree sings, you may need headphones to hear the tree sings.
    If you don’t do it right – you hear a “bad” sound. If you are OK the tree is happy.






    If you succeed it gives you and item you can use to create better troops.















    Go back to the headquarters and enter it.


    You see a new mission – select the left mission and not the right. Select the hunting mission – we want some meat to create a new troop member.


    Select this one:


    Just start.















    Good work!




    Go back to the ““troops creator” and enter it with the “X”


    Select the first option with the X (This is the squad we want to add to…) as you can see it is empty and has 6 more places to fill.


    Here we need to decide what raw material this troop is made of – if we select different material the price will go up. For now we don’t have lots of choice, later we will have more choice when we will complete more mission and get more materials.





    We select the option on the bottom to create the squad member .
    Notice the price on the top right (120)


    The approve screen – we will move to the top option to approve.



    Here is the member begin created. Notice that we have one new dark circle (the left most circle in the 6 circle row)







    We can see him going in the headquarters.


    Enter the headquarters with the “X”.


    Now select this mission, a battle mission (notice the sward)


    Move right with right arrow


    To here:


    Then press X to add the new squad to the company.


    Select the old squad and equip them with the gear we have from the last mission:




    Left or down is always a better choice in the select weapon screen.







    Start the mission.













    All the man got killed – we need more force!

    No party if you lose.


    OK – create one more man:




    Here he is:


    And one more (if you need – go on a hunting mission).






    This is what you need for the mission – so start it now.









    Good work!

    This is the next mission.


    Don’t forget to equip before you start the mission.














    This guy will help you. He will shot arraws.











    He is leaving, but after he is gone we will be able to create more archers like him – so no worries.



    Once more he transform into a butterfly.





    Good work

    As you can see we now can build archers, so build one.







    Save your work once more by pressing the “select” button in this screen.

    OK – this is the basic – check the forum for the more advance topics (like rain over fire and such).

    It took me 4 hours – but this walkthrough is done.

    If it helps you – post a message in this thread so I know I didn’t waste my time completely.
