PaRappa the Rapper Remaster Launches April 20 in Japan, UK Listing Spotted

After being announced at PSX in December, Sony Interactive Entertainment has announced when the 4K remaster of cult classic PS1 game PaRappa the Rapper is releasing in Japan.

We’ve now learned that PaRappa the Rapper Remastered will release April 20th in Japan for 1,800 yen (about 15$) both digitally and physically.

While no western release date has been announced, the UK PlayStation Store currently has PaRappa the Rapper Remastered listed as releasing April 4th for £11.99. While this date hasn’t been confirmed, the listing does seem very legitimate.

While it is unlikely we will get Japan’s physical release, the Japanese version is in English, if you want to import a physical copy.
