Parappa the Rapper 2 is coming to PS4 this week

Parappa the Rapper 2 is coming to PS4 this week, Sony confirmed during the latest Playstation Blogcast.

Sony is fast at work bringing more and more PS2 classics to the PS4, and next in line is Parappa the Rapper 2.

The 2001 rhythm game by NanaOn-Sha will be available to download on the Playstation Store from Tuesday, December 15.

Sony made the announcement during last week’s Playstation Blogcast, along with a few details on the game.

The PS4 version will boast upscaled 1080p graphics, trophy support and compatibility with other PS4 features such as shareplay and cloud saves.

You can also broadcast gameplay of PS2 classics to Twitch, Youtube and other streaming services.

The first wave of PS2 classics hit the Playstation Store last week, costing between £7.99 and £11.99.

Parappa the Rapper 2 is more than likely going to be £7.99, as it isn’t an expansive JRPG like Rogue Galaxy or Dark Cloud.

Some of the PS2 classics currently available on PS4 include: Twisted Metal Black, Dark Cloud, Rogue Galaxy and War of the Monsters.

Sony’s Shuhei Yoshida has said the company will “work tirelessly” to bring more PS2 classics to PS4, aiming to release them “on a regular basis.”

In a way, PS2 classic support is Sony’s answer to backwards compatibility.

 Unfortunately, all games have to be purchased again, with original PS2 discs being incompatible with the PS4.
