Major Minor's Majestic March Brings The Wii Music

Who could use some brightly colored screen shots to perk up their day? Well, how about some new Major Minor's Majestic March media? Majesco has 16 new, nearly identical new shots of the game.

While the new screens don't, in any fashion, illustrate any variety in the NanaOn-Sha developed Wii title, they show that creators Masaya Matsuura and Rodney Alan Greenblat of PaRappa the Rapper fame haven't lost their touch, stylistically.

But variety Major Minor's Majestic March has, according to publisher Majesco, who promises 7 fantastical locations, 30 new band members and 20 different instruments. That's 57 things! Coincidence?! I think not.

DISCUSSION

This could be the least of this trilogy of games (include Parappa and Um Jammer for a thematic trifecta) and I'd still give it more than a fair shot. I can understand the people who say (maybe in not the nicest way) "this looks like it's definitely not for me, and if i play it, I will hate it"; put Killzone or Halo in that sentence and I've said it a thousand times. I just wish they'd leave it at that instead of calling it shovelware.

But to me, this seems shrewd, almost brilliant. Parappa was probably the beginning of a lineage of games that has culminated in GH and RB and rather than pick the bones of that style of play, the same creators seem to be trying to take it in a relatively new direction with the marching band premise. I am very excited to try this, but I don't think the game will meet my expectations. However, there is a lot of room that the game has to drop before it can hit the shovelware level.

I also don't see a lot of Parappa fans disparaging the concept of this game, which encourages me.
