Game publisher Majesco has announced a new collaborative team is working on a Nintendo Wii exclusive music game.
Nanaon-Sha, developer of Parappa the Rapper and Vib Ribbon, and Parappa character designer Rodney Alan Greenblat are working together on the project, which is slated for a late 2008 completion.
"Matsuura-san and I share similar artistic perspectives so I welcomed the opportunity to re-team with him and Nanaon-Sha to produce a one-of-a-kind music game designed from the ground up for the Wii system," Greenblat said.
Majesco CEO Jesse Sutton added, "Masaya Matsuura and Rodney Alan Greenblat are industry visionaries whose legacy was built on crafting groundbreaking, genre-defining entertainment experiences that everyone can enjoy."
He went on to compare the venture to Rock Band and Guitar Hero in its ambitions and appeal to the gaming public.
