[News] [Wii]

You own it, it's your birthday. Majesco Entertainment is getting its groove on in the music/rhythm genre on the Wii with Major Minor's Majestic March. I guess their groove is all about alliteration.

 Storyline
In a town where, I was born, there lived a man...oh sorry. I was channeling dead Beatles there for a moment. I miss Sgt. Pepper.

In a town where marching bands are prevalent and everyone is looking to be the best, Major Mike Minor is fairly ambivalent towards marches despite hailing from a long line of illustrious Drum Majors. After his parents present him with a “special” baton that magically attracts band members to fall into rhythm behind the leader, will Major Minor finally fulfill his potential and share the joy of marching with the world?

OK, hold up a second. He's got a 'special magic baton,' given to him by his parents and people fall into rhythm behind him? Does anyone else see grounds for a sexual innuendo comment here? Share the joy of marching with the world. You go Mike, buy them all a Coke and a smile for me.

Features

Major Minor’s Majestic March marks the return of the creative team behind the renowned PaRappa the Rapper franchise-legendary game designer and multimedia musician Masaya Matsuura and famed New York artist Rodney Alan Greenblat.
Your Wii Remote is Major Minor’s “special” bandleader baton (no comments please), used to keep tempo, recruit new band members and pick-up valuable items (or girls maybe?). If your rhythm is unstable confusion will result; band members will drop out and you could ultimately fail the stage.

And then word will spread, and you will never get another date.

March in 8 different whimsical locations that contain various hair-raising events. Use your best efforts to create the most impressive parade ever whilst nimbly avoiding obstacles.
Add 15 different instruments to your procession, from brass to woodwinds to percussion.

I like to march in all sorts of whimsical locations and have definitely marched in more than eight. I haven't once had a hair-raising event, well except for that one time the police showed up. I do so like to be nimble though, it really helps the marching...though I'm not so sure about adding 15 instruments to the party...

As the makeup of the band changes, so does the performance; it all depends on which members you select! Try different combinations each time you play. That's exactly MY thought on the subject!

Numerous modes of play.

Yes, it actually said that in the press release, those exact words. How vague is that? Can you position the people differently and that then causes different types of movement? Do you see why I feel the need to make some comment about sex?

March and keep tempo to more than 30 well-known marching band tunes from around the world, composed into original medleys for each unique stage.

Dazzle the crowd with your incredible baton-twirling displays during brief intermissions.

Personally I don't see marching band tunes as the ideal music for baton-twirling displays, generally I think R&B or some dance music work better...

Yes, this game is really coming to the Wii. No that was not a pun. Yes I am making fun of the game or more appropriately the way it was presented in today's press release. So sue me. Anyway, there is no release date or rating set for Major Mike's Mystical...I mean Major Minor's Majectic March.
