Rumor: New PaRappa the Rapper coming to PS4

Queasy Games and Media Molecule handling development?

A new PaRappa the Rapper game might be in development at Sony.

A NeoGAF poster claims to have been told the information by a drunk Sony public relations rep while he was out drinking with “some game industry friends.”

It’s worth noting that obtaining an account on NeoGAF is a lengthy process, and getting banned isn’t difficult. The user responsible for the post has been a member since 2006.

According to the poster, the Sony rep said Sound Shapes developer Queasy Games and Tearaway and LittleBigPlanet studio Media Molecule were working on the title.

Meanwhile, Famousmortimer, a known NeoGAF insider, added that “it’s happening,” and that “it may not be the only old Sony IP given to an indie.” However, he hasn’t heard whether Queasy Games are handling development.

“I’m not saying it isn’t Queasy,” Famousmortimer said, “I’m just saying that when I heard it that wasn’t the team I was told. But rumors and stuff… you know how it goes.”

Asked what platform he’s heard, Famousmortimer replied, “I was told PS4 but obviously it wouldn’t be out of the question that it’s on both [PS4 an PS Vita].”

As with all rumors, take this one with some salt until it’s confirmed or denied.
