One of my all-time favorite PlayStation games, PaRappa The Rapper, is making a comeback ... yes. I've actually asked for it on a few occasions, so it's good someone is listening. You see, Sony announced today that the original PaRappa The Rapper is coming to the PlayStation Portable in July. Maybe this PSP won't go away after all:

Sony Computer Entertainment America Inc. (SCEA) announced today the North American release of PaRappa The Rapper(TM), an iconic character-based music and hip-hop game, available in July 2007 for PSP(R) (PlayStation(R)Portable). Developed by Sony Computer Entertainment, in association with legendary multimedia musician Masaya Matsuura and famed New York artist Rodney Greenblat, the PaRappa The Rapper franchise debuted 10 years ago on the original PlayStation(R) and is widely credited with establishing the music and rhythm game genre that continues to thrive today.  PaRappa The Rapper for the PSP system mobilizes PaRappa's hip-hop adventures and builds on the success of this iconic franchise.

Featuring all the characters, levels and songs from the original, PaRappa The Rapper increases the franchise's social appeal by offering a host of new PSP exclusive features, including the ability for up to four PSP systems to go head-to-head in ad-hoc battles; wirelessly share a demo level through Game Share; and use the PSP Infrastructure Mode to download eight additional playable remixes for players to rap along to. 

Yeah, it may be an ancient port, but damn, it's a classic port that I'm sure none of us would complain to have on a portable system just dying for a good library of titles.
