Atari is banking on Tetsuya Mizuguchi's next project, a music game with the working title "QJ
," to reestablish the celebrated developer at the top of his, uh, game
-- or to strike a chord with Wii owners, at least. The publisher announced today that it will bring Q Entertainment's QJ
to Wii, but omitted further details. Marching behind a string of Lumines
sequels, Mizuguchi has stumbled offbeat

and Every Extend Extra Extreme.
music foundation suggests that Mizuguchi
could be drumming up renewed inspiration from his own cult classic, Space Channel 5.
Additionally, Atari announced the Q3
("Cubed") compilation disc for Xbox 360, which will include Mizuguchi's XBLA
games: Every Extend Extra Extreme, Lumines Live
and Rez HD,
along with all released DLC. The collection has been given a tentative price of €30 (roughly $40) and has yet to be dated for release.
