Finally, we knew you would come!

Please help us Almighty, we Patapons have grown weak — without the guidance of the Great Patapon, we’re lost.

Patapon ancients possessed wisdom, courage and strength thanks to Almighty’s drum of miracles. Today – Patapons have fallen far from their glory.

For centuries we have been outcast to the ends of the earth, living in the shadow of our once mighty ancestors.

So take the Holy drum, lead us to victory and get our glory back.

Listen to the Pulse of Earth and reignite the rhythms that have lain dormant for millennia.
