PaRappa the Rapper, Patapon and Loco Roco PS4 remasters coming in 2017

And PaRappa the Rapper Remastered demo is available to download today!

During the PSX Showcase this morning, we were finally able to pump up the volume on three classic games with two things connecting them:

  1. They feature music in a unique way
  2. They are all getting remastered!

The classic hip-hop beats of PaRappa the Rapper, the addictively charming tunes sung by scores of Loco Roco, and the marching war beats of Patapon are coming to PlayStation 4 in 2017. Lovingly rendered in 4K* and 1080p, these iconic characters will get a new life on today’s televisions.


To give you a taste of the love we are putting into developing these games for a new generation, we are releasing a demo of PaRappa the Rapper Remastered today!

Besides making the games look great on your HD and 4K televisions, we are adding special features to take advantage of PS4 and Dualshock 4 capabilities. For PaRappa the Rapper Remastered, the Dualshock 4 controller provides a steady metronome for each song to help the player ‘feel’ the beat of the rap. LocoRoco Remastered takes advantage of the features a Dualshock 4 offers incorporating motion controls to help roll, bounce and tilt the LocoRoco through their vibrantly animated worlds.


Keep an eye on PlayStation Blog for more updates in the coming months! Until then, in the rain or in the snow, I got the funky flow but now I really gotta go.

*4K content requires 4k compatible display.

Pata Pata Pata Pon!

Looking good, can you do a Medievil remaster after ;)

Already played the demo, short but nice :)

Also hope this gets a retail release, as in bundle all 3 on one disc.

Oh my Word, Patapon and Loco Roco was PSP originals and they provide it to PS4 and NOTHING for the VITA ? Where is the love and why did I waste my money …

I hope that’s all LocoRoco titles getting remastered, not just just the first.

We close the comments for posts after 30 days.
