Kickstarter from PaRappa the Rapper and Gitaroo Man Creators Goes Live

Project Rap Rabbit officially announced by Pa Rappa The Rapper and Gitaroo Man creators Project Rap Rabbit – the music game strikes back

The Project Rap Rabbit Kickstarter has only just begun and it's earned over $63,000 in a few hours, as of this writing.

We recently learned that creators of PaRappa the Rapper and Gitaroo Man are getting together to work on a new rhythm-action game Project Rap Rabbit, and today it's been officially revealed as a new KickStarter Project.

Although Project Rap Rabbit is doing alright for itself thus far - it's grossed just shy of $50,000 at time of writing, with 35 days to go - almost $5 million is a lot to task from potential backers.

Our grand hip hop saga takes place in an alternate history, circa 16th Century Japan.

A toxic atmosphere of protectionism is taking hold.

At the height of this culture of fear, an Earth-shattering calamity befalls the world.

Battles play out in three steps.

As you might expect, there are stretch goals as part of the campaign, with the Xbox One version coming if $3,100,000 is raised. But will this be another pure rhythm-action game like PaRappa and Gitaroo Man, or something wildly different? And it's all been building to this: Project Rap Rabbit's unique rapping gameplay represents the culmination of our experience across the genre's biggest and best hits, and a true evolution of rhythm-action mechanics. If you're interested, then be sure to back the project before its closing date of June 19. The ability to choose dialogue trees with "variable verses" is teased, rather than just going along with the same lyrics song by song.

NanaOn-Sha and iNiS have launched a Project Rap Rabbit teaser site and official social media accounts on Facebook and Twitter, but all we have to go by right now when it comes to figuring out what kind of features it will include is a short teaser posted via the game's official Twitter profile, @ProRapRabbit. To that end, we have designed a flexible and dynamic bonus system to reward self-expression.

Now on Kickstarter, the people behind Project Rap Rabbit are asking funders for a total of $4,950,000 for the title to be made available on Nintendo Switch.

However, unlike PaRappa you will decide on the raps, "YOU are in control of the raps".
