A demo of PaRappa the Rapper Remastered is available on the PlayStation Store today.

"Lovingly rendered in 4K (requires PS4 Pro and a 4K-compatible display) and 1080p, these iconic characters will get a new life on today's televisions," wrote SCEA project manager Nick Accordino on the PlayStation Blog. "Besides making the games look great on your HD and 4K televisions, we are adding special features to take advantage of PS4 and DualShock 4 capabilities."

"For PaRappa the Rapper Remastered, the DualShock 4 controller provides a steady metronome for each song to help the player 'feel' the beat of the rap. LocoRoco Remastered takes advantage of the features a DualShock 4 offers incorporating motion controls to help roll, bounce and tilt the LocoRoco through their vibrantly animated worlds.
