Rare Replay trailer goes the cardboard cutout route

Now I want to play Parappa the Rapper

Rare Replay is coming out on August 4. That’s in less than two weeks! The collection of games from Rare’s past 30 years is showing up on Xbox One with some extra nuggets thrown in as well.

The trailer above talks about this in the form of a musical play, starring a cast of cardboard cutout characters. It’s a little difficult to tell what the lyrics are in some parts, but I think I get the gist anyway. If I had to guess, Microsoft and Rare want us not only to buy this collection, but to pre-order it. (Psst! Don’t do it!)
