Despite my pessimistic expectations last week, Sony has seen fit to bring the original PaRappa the Rapper OST out of Japan and direct to the PlayStation Store. Released this week alongside the remastered edition of the game is the same 44-track album that will be reprinted on CD in Japan next month.
In the same vein as recent soundtrack releases the PaRappa OST comes in the form of a music app for PlayStation 4. There’s the standard playback controls, a no-frills slideshow and the ability to export the songs to a USB device in MP3 format. If you’ve been holding onto dubious and scuzzy MP3s from the late 90’s this is a great way to update your collection while showing support for the classic franchise.
