Masaya Matsuura, the designer most known for creating PaRappa the Rapper and Vib-Ribbon, is working with Harmonix on their upcoming Apple TV game.


PaRappa the Rapper and Vib-Ribbon creator Masaya Matsuura is composing music for Harmonix’s recently announced Beat Sports.

Beat Sports is the studio’s rhythm-based mini-game collection that’s coming exclusively to the new Apple TV and would make for a great opportunity for fans of Matsuura’s classic work to listen to new material.

“Matsuura-san is one of the true pioneers of the music game genre, and his work has been hugely inspirational to me and others at Harmonix from our early days. We’ve wanted to work with him for a very long time so we’re thrilled to be able to include some of his wonderful music in Beat Sports,” Harmonix co-founder Alex Rigopulos told Gamespot.

The two new tracks featured in the game are available below. Do the right thing.
