PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale is starting looking like it'll have more third-party characters in it than first-party heroes. One bona fide PlayStation creation that will be in the game, however, is PaRappa the Rapper. And Sony has released a trailer showing off his move set, and how to strategise when playing as him.
"PaRappa is unique not only because of his paper-like look, but also because of his passion and determination," writes Ray Ray Shen on the PlayStation Blog. "Without crazy magical powers or heavy weaponry, PaRappa?s moveset is based on his energetic, rapid kung-fu moves, his funky skateboard skills and his love of music."
He has kicks, punches, a skateboard and a special move that mimics the "I Gotta Believe" stage from the original PaRappa the Rapper game. Which, the developers in the video are keen to stress, is 'the first screen-filling move we've seen so far in PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale.' Well, no - it's the first screen-filling move WE'VE seen so far. We'd be a little concerned if the developers don't even know what they're putting into the game.
