The official Japanese PlayStation blog announced on Tuesday that it will release PaRappa the Rapper Remastered, a PlayStation 4 remake of the Parappa the Rapper rhythm game, on April 20 in Japan.
Sony Interactive Entertainment streamed an announcement trailer for the game in December:
The PS4 version will improve the visuals of the original PlayStation game. Both the download edition and the physical edition will cost 1,944 yen (about US$17) with tax. Those who preorder the digital edition will receive six character avatars.
The original PlayStation rhythm game by NanaOn-Sha shipped in 1996, and the series spawned two more games. Rodney Alan Greenblat designed the franchise's characters. The game received a 30-episode television anime adaptation in 2001, and an ongoing series of anime shorts beginning last year.
