Sega should make a new PaRappa the Rapper game.

The karaoke mini-game in Yakuza 3 and 4 is basically PaRappa the Rapper, but with Japanese crazy.
As seen in the video below the Yakuza team knows a thing or two about singing animations. I think kazuma rocking machine gun kiss, is better than any animation in a Rockband/Guitar hero game. I think it's a fantastic example of japan being Japan.

God I loved the Karaoke in this game, and Yakuza 3 before it. One of my favourite minigames of the series, and introduced me to so much awesome J-pop <3 My favourite would be the duet between Akiyama and Hana.


I don't think I'd want a full game based around it, though.

Well not a 60 dollar game. How about a 20 dollar Downloadable game that has a like 30 more of these insane j-pop songs.

Maybe if it had the Yakuza cast.. one of the best parts was also seeing these characters you knew and enjoyed having fun with these cheesy and catchy tracks. Damn shame that stubborn shit, Saejima, wouldn't go. It's understandable for his character, but still would like to see which song he'd pick out ;P

The police guy whats his name doesn't sing either.
I thought he would because he's the youngest.

I dont think the Yakuza animations are any better than anything in RB3, about the same really. But yeah they should make another Parappa  game. I have always loved the hell out of it and I'd love to see a newer game  as long as they keep him 2D and Chop Chop Master Onion is in it.
