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


  • An NTSC-U build from around three weeks before the final US build.
  • A rectangle with some unusual transparency is present at the top left of the screen at all times, like one of the previous builds - in earlier builds, this area would display information about the current stage and how many bars of the song have been completed, but in this version the information is not present and so the region simply causes visual errors. 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.
