Parappa the Rapper 2 gets a release date in Japan.
Parappa the Rapper, which showed America what was such a craze in Japan, is getting a sequel for the PS2. The original Parappa the Rapper was about a young pup trying to accomplish different feats while having to keep a beat with his favorite raps. Now, with the sequel already being announced, it has been confirmed that August 30, 2001 is the date in which Japan will get a taste of this unusual but original game. The date was given by Japanese website Coji Coji, and is hoped to do as well as the original.
Although a release date has been established, it is still a mystery of what will be expected from the game. While we know the graphics will be an improvement of the once flat-like characters, music-style and gameplay are still being questioned. However, we do know one thing for sure. If the music is as catchy as the game’s predecessor, Japan is in for another addicting game with mass appeal.
