PaRappa the Rapper Remastered is now slated for a 4th April release on PS4.

It will cost ‎11.99 / $14.99, though PS Plus members will receive a 20 per cent discount.

There's a free demo of it already available. You can also pre-order the game to get a 20th anniversary background theme.

For the most part this remastering of Masaya Matsuura's cult classic about a dog learning to rap in order to woo his crush won't add much in the way of new content, but it will feature enhanced audio, textures, and 1080p support on standard PS4s (along with dynamic 4K support on PS4 Pro).

Beyond that, this remaster will feature "additional alternative audio tracks", vibration support so the DualShocks will rumble to the beat, and an option to enlarge icons making them easier to see.

Sometimes we include links to online retail stores. If you click on one and make a purchase we may receive a small commission. For more information, go here.
