Hey, who remembers Patapon for the PSP?
It seems this isn't entirely dissimilar: As announced over at the PlayStation Blog , Jungle Rumble: Freedom, Happiness, and Bananas is coming to the PlayStation Vita "very soon."
Players control a tribe of monkeys, who must stop a rival tribe from stealing their bananas. It's a rhythm-based game and we'll use the Vita's touchscreen to tap along to the beat of the jungle. Featuring a dynamic soundtrack that rises in intensity with more monkeys, this game will require you to keep to the beat…or suffer crushing silence. That's right, missing a beat will result in the stoppage of music and you don't want that!
For this Vita incarnation, developer Disco Pixel has prepared the following improvements:
New tutorial: Being a quite different control mechanic, the game explains how to play. We have playtested with (literally) thousands of con-going types in the Indie Megabooth at PAX, next to the Heian Shrine at BitSummit in Kyoto, and wherever else they let Disco Pixel set up shop. We watch what trips new players up. Then we fix it. We want you to love this as much as we do.
More levels: We have expanded the game with bonus levels exploring the “hot step”, a way for monkeys to speed through the jungle. More levels, more medals to earn, more achievements.
Badder beats: This is a rhythm game. More music. Hot stuff.
Sounds like an on-the-go winner to me.
