First Major Minor’s Majestic March Screens March In


Exciting news! Majesco today sent over the first-ever screenshots for Major Minor’s Majestic March, the Wii-exclusive marching band title from game designer/musician Masaya Matsuura and artist Rodney Alan Greenblat, the creative masterminds that brought us PaRappa the Rapper. To no surprise, the art style is very, very similar to that of NanaOn-Sha’s rapping puppy franchise:

The game also sounds like it’ll a lot of fun and very unique. Majesco’s own synopsis describes it best, so I’ve posted that up for you to read over after the break.

Major Minor’s Majestic March turns the Wii Remote™ into a “special” baton that the bandleader, Major Minor, uses to keep tempo, recruit new band members and pick up valuable items. While marching through seven whimsical locations that contain various hair-raising events, Major Minor strives to create the most impressive parade ever. Players can add up to 15 different instruments to their dynamic procession-including brass, woodwinds, and percussion-to alter its composition and resulting performance. Players are scored on how well their band maintains its rhythm and manages obstacles that could otherwise throw the procession into disarray. The band keeps tempo to more than 25 popular marching band songs from around the world, composed into original medleys for each stage.
