Sony’s latest PlayStation Blogcast revealed some good news this week, announcing that PaRappa the Rapper 2 will be available on the PlayStation 4 from next week, available to play from December 15th.
In case you don’t already know, PaRappa the Rapper 2 is the third game in the PaRappa the Rapper series, originally launched on the PlayStation 2 in 2001, it is a rhythm game that has been developed by NanoOn-Sha.
PlayStation explains more:
The game plays similar to its predecessor and features 8 stages. The teacher will give a line of rap and PaRappa will have to repeat it, or otherwise improvise it. If he messes up his line twice in a row, he drops a rank from Good, to Bad, to Awful. Performing well two times in a row will bring the player up a rank.
Players lose the level if they drop below Awful, or finish the level in the Bad or Awful state.Parappa 2 handles this a little differently from its predecessors, as upon dropping a rank, the teacher will say ‘Getting Worse’, and the song will go back two lines, and sometimes altering the lines to make them easier to play. If the player improvises a rap successfully two times in a row, it accesses Cool mode, where the teacher leaves PaRappa to do freestyle by himself.
If PaRappa can reach the end of the level in Cool mode, he’ll earn a Cool ranking for that stage. This unlocks music tracks available to listen in a music player available at the end of the game.
