Parappa the Rapper ships nationwide
SCEA announced today that Parappa the Rapper 2 has shipped to retailers nationwide. The sequel to the incredibly popular music title on the PSX, PR2 brings back the character of Parappa Town. Your task in this quirky title is to use his lyrical skills to learn a variety of life lessons along your journey. Noodle Syndicate is the evil boss you are trying to defeat, as he is attempting to overrun the town and turn all foods into noodles. (Yup, you heard me correct) The gameplay of PR2 is the same as the original, with the classic button-tapping control scheme and "colorform" visual concept.
"We are delighted to bring the endearing gameplay of the original Parappa to life on PlayStation 2," said Ami Blaire, director, product marketing, Sony Computer Entertainment America Inc. "The style and creativity of the first Parappa the Rapper attracted a loyal following and we're looking forward to extending the franchise for a new audience on our next generation platform."
