Patapon 3 Comes To Vita Next Week

David Hinkle: ''Patapon 3 will become a PS Vita-compatible game next week. The news comes via the latest PlayStation Blogcast, episode number 62, wherein social media manager Sid Shuman and crew confirm the new PS Vita compatibility will be available alongside next week's PSN update.'' (Patapon 3, PS Vita)

I hope Patapon 4 is in development for the PSV.

I still need to finish Patapon 2 lol. I bet it looks great on the OLED. Can someone tell me how to transfer my save file from my PSP to my Vita?

Think 2 was the best in the franchise and hope 4 is alot like it if they ever do make it.

1. Turn on a psp game on your vita and create a save (it doesn't matter which game, as long as you have a save file).

2. Copy the save file from your psp to your pc. Game save folders can be found on the memory stick for the PSP in the folder PSP\SAVEDATA. I just copied all my saves at once to make the process simple.

3. Connect your vita to your PC and install the Content Manager software on your PC.

4. Browse to the software on the vita called Content Manager

5. Select under copy content: PS Vita System -> PC\Applications\Saved Data (PSP/Other)

6. Select the saved data you created earlier in this guide and Copy it to the pc. A message saying "The selected content items will be copied to the PC." will pop up. Hit "OK".

7. In Windows Explorer, browse to Documents\PS Vita\PSAVEDATA\. You will now see a folder that has a bunch of letters (IE f2c17dd.........). Open that folder.

8. You will now see folders for the saved data that you copied to your PC. Move the PSP Save folders you downloaded from the PSP in step 2 to the f2c17dd......... folder that you are in (make sure you place them in a way such that you are emulating the way the other save file was stored)

9. On the vita, Open Content Manager again and under Copy Content, go to PC -> PS Vita System\Applications\Saved Data (PSP/Other). Select the game saves you want to transfer to the vita by hitting the select all button or picking individual saves with the square boxes on the left side of the screen and hit the Copy button. A window will pop up saying "The selected content items will be copied to the PS Vita system". Hit "OK".

10. If you used the "Select all" option earlier, you will be prompted to choose to overwrite your save data (You can choose whichever way you want). The save data will now be on your PS Vita and usable in your games.

or

Transferring PSP save data to Vita using the Content Manager interface when plugged into the PS3 to copy to Vita works.

I never actually bought this game, I played the demo after really enjoying Patapon 2.

I also really want a Vita, I missed out on a lot of JRPG's on the PSP that are on the PS Store.

Maybe get one later this year or something, hopefully it will get a bit of a price drop.

Patapon 2 is the best in the series.

Errm ok? I've had Patapon 3 on my vita since almost release date.. had to double take for a second then and check, yes I do have patapon 3 on my vita.

I remember buying it from the store on my vita, Unless this is something to do with controls and such? but in UK this game already works on vita
