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.
