Punch! Kick! It's all on the Wii! (also, new Parappa the Rapper?)

11:34 AM on 12.11.2007 // Colette Bennett

Oh, happy day. For those of you who adored Parappa the Rapper as deeply as I did, this will come as thrilling news. Majesco has made an annoucement that they have formed a partnership with New York artist Rodney Alan Greenblat and game designer Masaya Matsuura (the peeps behind the original Parappa) to create a new Wii exclusive rhythm title.

Jesse Sutton, Majesco's CEO, seemed very enthusiastic about the project, saying:

"Masaya Matsuura and Rodney Alan Greenblat are industry visionaries whose legacy was built on crafting groundbreaking, genre-defining entertainment experiences that everyone can enjoy. We are incredibly excited to be working with talent of this caliber and believe our game shares the same broad mass market appeal as successful music-based products like Activision’s Guitar Hero and MTV’s Rock Band ."

I can't blame him for being excited. Games like Rhythm Tengoku and Taiko no Tatsujin have addicted me to the rhythm genre for life, and Parappa was also a favorite back in the early Playstation days. The game is slated for release in late 2008, so as soon as we find out more we'll slap it all over the Destructoid homepage like butter on a grilled cheese.
