In march I've decided to get myself a psp as a birthday gift to myself because the uber pretty FFVII prequel is coming out. But the subject of this post isn't the FFVII fan service, it's a game called "Patapon" which is a rhythm RPG, and adorable.
You use, what sounds to me at least, kuchishowa which is the taiko way of teaching sounds. And what rhythms you pound out tells your little guys what to do. Then you can earn them equpment and other things to speicalize them.
