Masaya Matsuura (creator of PaRappa the Rapper
and Major Minor's Majestic March
) says he and his posse over at NanaOn-Sha are interested in making a music game for Microsoft's Project Natal
. "We are thinking about ideas," said Matsuura to Videogamer.com
at the UK Develop Conference. " I think any kind of interaction with a camera will be good for music games, but the important thing will be how we can find the new breed of gameplay."
Matsuura thinks he can create something fresh -- something other than the rock genre, which he points out Guitar Hero
and Rock Band
cover quite well. Instead, he thinks there's room to grow for other sounds: "There is other attractive music, so please try to find another style, another interaction, another gameplay with another type of music."
Activision is breaking out with DJ Hero
. So, what could Matsuura work on? Wait a minute... breaking
. How about a pure break dance title? Baraver the Breakdancing Beaver
