Parappa the Rapper creator Masaya Matsuura and Keiichi Yano of Gitaroo Man and the Ouendan are teaming up for a new story-driven rhythm adventure. Remember when rhythm games had stories? These two do.
The show is Steven Universe, a relatively new animated series on Cartoon Network about a young boy called Steven, and his intergalactic female warrior friends. Its 16th episode, 'Steven the Sword Fighter' was aired recently and surprisingly, it was full of video game references!
While I'd forgotten all about PS3 game Modnation Racers, I could never forget about rhythm action game Gitaroo Man. So it's lovely seeing the two come together like this, helping each other out.
