PaRappa And Gitaroo Man Creators Reveal New Rhythm-Action Game

Check out that giant frog.


Hot on the heels of the recent PS4 remaster of PaRappa The Rapper, the creators of PaRappa and Gitaroo Man have teamed up to make a new rhythm game called Project Rap Rabbit.

Masaya Matsuura and Keiichi Yano, the makers of PaRappa and Gitaroo Man, respectively, are working on the new game, which is described as a "rhythm-action adventure." They have launched a website and accounts on Twitter and Facebook to tease the game, but have yet to reveal any more details. You can see a short teaser video for Rap Rabbit below.

Although the developer didn't show off any gameplay, the music in the video is definitely reminiscent of PaRappa. I'm also a big fan of the giant frog in the background.

PaRappa The Rapper originally launched in 1997 for the PlayStation 1, and Gitaroo Man in 2002 for the PS2. PaRappa was recently remastered and released on PS4, and you can read our updated review here.
