Sony brings Parappa 2 to the US
Parappa the Rapper 2 will be released in North America in early 2002.
Sony Computer Entertainment has confirmed that Parappa the Rapper 2 will be released for the North American PlayStation 2. The game will arrive in Q1 2002 in that territory. After taking a bit of a hiatus, while Unjammer Lammy did her thing, Parappa is back in his second musical adventure. The game features all new songs, but it retains the distinctive look of the original game, featuring colorful backgrounds and cutout-style characters. Many of the original cast members return, including Master Onion, but there are also several new characters in the game.
The North American version will be virtually identical to the Japanese game--the songs and much of the story will remain intact. Sony does plan to remove two specific references to religion and alcohol, and an animation routine will be changed for the localization. GameSpot will have more as it becomes available.
