If you’re going to go up against the world’s deadliest foes you’re going to need every advantage that you can get. Fortunately for you we’ve got inside tips on how to best tackle Unit 13′s numerous missions, game types, connectivity features and more straight from developer Zipper Interactive. Over the next week, we’ll be rolling out a three-part in-depth video series to teach you everything from the core fundamentals of how to play the game to tips on how to tackle each mission type and even how to fully take advantage of Unit 13′s networking features.
Part 1, “How to Play”, shows you what it will take to run with the best-of-the-best. It covers everything from a complete control breakdown to tactical combat strategies to Unit 13′s in-depth scoring system. This is as close to a Unit 13 boot camp as you’ll get.
The next two videos in the series, “Game Types” and “Sharing and Competing”, will be released in the near future right here on the PlayStation.Blog, so check back then for more insider tips on Unit 13.
Unit 13 will be available on March 6th exclusively for PlayStation Vita. A playable demo is now available in the PlayStation Store, so check out the videos in this series, download the demo and hone your skills in anticipation of the full release.

Thank you for your patience and encouragement over the last few weeks. As covered in the post from earlier today, you can now update the firmware on your PS3 and change your password. Kazuo Hirai just announced that we have begun the phased restoration by region of some of the services, starting with online multiplayer functionality.
Please note that these services will take a bit of time to be turned on and rolled out to the whole country. The process has begun and some states are being turned on now, so please be patient as we reach your city and state. We’ll be updating the map below as service comes online in individual states. It will take several hours to restore PSN throughout the entire country, so please keep checking back for the latest updates. In the meantime, now’s a great time to get your PS3’s firmware updated, which is required to get online.
Map updated 11:08pm Pacific
Notice: If your state is illuminated but your service has not yet been restored, please be patient – it can take a little while for the servers to populate fully.
Until we get the comments functioning correctly, we’re putting all comments on hold. I’m sure Jitender would appreciate not having people put words in his mouth ^_^
In the meantime, we’ll keep updating the map, and those of you already back online – enjoy some games!
Brush up on your Patapon 3 skills and learn how to keep the beat with these top tips from developer Pyramid.
1. Feel the rhythm
Listen carefully and get into the rhythm of the songs in Patapon 3. This is the key to mastering the entire Patapon series on PSP. And if possible, don’t forget to use your headphones. It’s much easier to play the game that way.
2. Defend yourself
While attacking and dodging in Patapon 3 is important, you must learn to protect yourself in battle. If you find yourself backed into a wall at any point, be sure to use the CHAKA CHAKA rhythm, which is represented by the Triangle button.
3. Skill master
You might feel like you want to try every different class of Patapon to begin with. Don’t do this. Instead, focus on developing just one of your skills in Patapon 3. By learning new skills, you could develop other classes of Patapon at the same time.
4. Armour up
Always ask yourself this question before embarking on a mission – what is the best equipment for me and my Patapon? For example, you’d be foolish to embark on a Flame Quest without equipment attributing to fire.
5. Play with a clan
In order to complete some of the tougher quests in Patapon 3 you’re going to need a little help from your friends or from other PSP players via PlayStation Network. That’s why it’s important to form a clan or become part of one. By working together you’ll be able to develop your weapon skills and more.
6. Take a break
Patapon 3 on PSP requires a lot of concentration, so if you find yourself getting tired in the middle of a long battle don’t force yourself to continue. It’s your duty as the Almighty to take a rest.
Download Patapon 3 from PlayStation Store or march to your nearest store and pick up a copy today.
