Project Rap Rabbit Kickstarter Is Now Live

Share

Created by the brains behind PaRappa the Rapper and Gitaroo Man, the game is described as "An explosive mix of Japanese folklore and traditional artwork, hip hop and humorous battle rap face-offs inspired by the Epic Rap Battles Of History YouTube series".

Designers Masaya Matsuura and Keiichi Yano are responsible for numerous most influential, innovative and beloved music-based video games of all time. There is no answer yet from Yano or Matsuura as to why that cookie jar was placed too high to reach, but one popular theory is that the high cost of Switch cartridges may have forced them to make the Nintendo port a distant option.

The rap battles will pit Toto-Maru against leaders or rival factions.

Are you looking forward to Project Rap Rabbit? It's up to you! Then the player chooses which of those keywords to run with and which type of lyric to bust back at their opponent-boast, laugh, joke or coerce.

Select the emotion you wish to unleash to preview the upcoming rhythm and your foe's reaction: There's no wrong choice, but different emotions will inflict different levels of damage to your adversary's Swag Gauge. Each side posseses a Swag Gauge, which will determine the victor of the battle. Now it's time to unleash those lines! Perhaps ever since Guitar Hero came out, the genre realized it didn't have to put much effort into the story side of things as long as people could play all the classic songs they knew. Press the specified face buttons at the correct time to enunciate every word perfectly, boosting your own Swag Gauge in the process. In a day when most games in the genre aren't much more than a song list to tap along to, we could really use some of that Parappa/Elite Beat Agents magic. These links leave Siliconera.
