Rumor: PaRappa The Rapper Is Coming Back

by Daniel Tack on Dec 02, 2016 at 05:48 AM

An application to the Korean Game Rating and Administration Committee from Sony Interactive Entertainment Korea has the rumor mill buzzing about the possibility of a new PaRappa The Rapper title or a revamp of something from the past.

Submitted on December 2, the application could be syncing up with a big reveal at PSX tomorrow, or on PaRappa's 20-year anniversary on December 6. While nothing is confirmed, it would make a lot of sense to see the dancing dog shine at the annual event packed with reveals and announcements. The original PaRappa did see one re-release already on PSP in 2007.

If it exists, will it be a new title? How about a polished reboot?

Our Take
This would be an interesting brand to bring back into the spotlight today. I'm actually hoping for a new game instead of a remake, but we'll see what happens.
