Parappa the Rappa creator Masaya Matsuura has told MTV that there isn’t “a huge advantage to adapting to MotionPlus”.
Currently at work on his new rhythm game Major Minor’s Majestic March, Matsuura went onto say that games using the new hardware need to be built for it from the get go.
“We tried to adapt Major Minor to MotionPlus, but doing so didn’t really make it any more fun than it already was”, he said.
“Maybe MotionPlus titles need to be planned as such from the beginning.”
There’s no fixed date on MotionPlus’s release as yet.

Major Minor’s Majestic March, the newly announced title from PaRappa the Rappa creator and NanaOn-Sha founder Masaya Matsuura, is being designed with the west in mind, the Japanese dev legend said today.
“We are designing for the western market first,” he said. “And we are now trying to find a Japanese publisher. Maybe we can find one soon, I hope.”
Major Minor’s Majestic March will be published by Majesco in the west.
The game, the first rhythm action title from NanaOn-Sha this decade, has been outlined for the first time in this interview.
“For the basic game function,” explained Matsuura, “you will set up an initial BPM [beats per minute] by shaking the Wii controller and you start marching. Along the street and the road, you can find some one who wants to join your band. And you can invite these kind of people into your band. So it requires some kind of rhythm-based actions. But, of course, this kind of action is already controlled by your shaking the controller. And if you successfully invite the member into your band, you not only get that new member but also their new instrument as part of your band. And you keep doing that.”
Definitely worth a read.

Publisher Majesco’s just confirmed Major Minor’s Majestic March for Wii. The rhythm action game’s being developed by PaRappa the Rapper outfit NanaOn-Sha.
From the press release:
“Major Minor’s Majestic March turns the Wii Remote(TM) 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 eight 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.”
