But when it comes to the between-mission status upgrades and inventory management, more is unfortunately less. After just a few missions, your Patapons will have acquired so many spoils of war that your inventory menus will become untenable. Worse still, losing Patapons on the field of battle can result in your having to resurrect them using certain hard-to-find items. Before each new mission, you have the option of equipping each type of Patapon with its own unique weapons and armor — all of which affects what happens on the battlefield. It’s a lot of work when you just want to bang on the drum all day.
