A prototype of PaRappa the Rapper 2 for the PlayStation 2.


  • An NTSC-J build from around a week before the final Japanese build.
  • A rectangle with some unusual transparency is present at the top left of the screen at all times - this appears to be for debugging purposes, as it seems to display information about the current stage and how many bars of the song have been completed. It is also present on the title screen, covering part of it.
  • Miscellaneous Notes:
    • Game is emulatable (in PCSX2): Yes (as of March 17, 2021).
    • Game contains dongle protection: No.
