The official U.S. PlayStation Store page for PaRappa the Rapper Remastered, a PlayStation 4 remake of the Parappa the Rapper rhythm game, revealed on Wednesday that the game is slated for release in the United States on April 4.
Sony Interactive Entertainment streamed an announcement trailer for the game in December:
The game is slated for release in Japan on April 20.
The PS4 version will improve the visuals of the original PlayStation game. The remake will also support resolutions up to 1080p, or 4K for PlayStation 4 Pro owners. The game will also have alternative tracks.
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.
