Ratatan’s Kickstarter went live on July 31, just a few days after the team shared a gameplay trailer for the spiritual successor to Patapon. The approximately $139,615 goal was funded in less than an hour and now it’s well on its way to clearing a lot of the stretch goals. The game, which is estimated to launch around April 2025, will now have an online mode, console versions (PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, Switch… or its successor?), a minigame, and a collaboration with composer David Wise, who is best known for his work on the Donkey Kong Country series.

At the time of publishing, Ratatan has been funded approximately $641,394 but several stretch goals beyond that amount have already been marked cleared on the graphic: a chiptunes version, a feature for players to have their own room and base upgrades, fireworks, a secret ending, orchestrated music, and an additional rarity level. Currently, there are three more stretch goals available that aren’t marked cleared: releasing the game in FIGS (French, Italian, German, and Spanish) languages, customize Fortrun, and a trophy box.

Patapon was a rhythm-based 2D strategy game originally released for the PSP in 2007. It came from Hiroyuki Kotani, who is also the Game Designer for Ratatan.
