MAJESCO ENTERTAINMENT SHIPS 'MAJOR MINOR'S MAJESTIC MARCH' FOR Wii TO RETAIL
Lead a Marching Band to Glory in This One-of-a-Kind Music Game From the Team Behind The Renowned PaRappa the Rapper Franchise
Majesco Entertainment Company an innovative provider of video games for the mass market, today announced that Major Minor's Majestic March for Wii™ has shipped to retail outlets nationwide. Developed by NanaOn-Sha, the game marks the return of the creative team from the PaRappa the Rapper series -- legendary game designer and multimedia musician Masaya Matsuura and famed New York artist Rodney Alan Greenblat. In this Wii™ exclusive, players use the Wii Remote™ as a bandleader baton to recruit new band members, pick up special items, and most importantly, keep the tempo!
Players assume the role of Major Minor, a courageous young cat who inherits his great-great grandmother's magic baton and ultimately realizes his leadership potential at the front of the parade. Using the baton, players recruit 30 original characters to build their band as they march through seven whimsical locations. Twenty different instruments, including brass, woodwinds, and percussion, alter the resulting composition and challenge players to maintain the tempo with each new addition. Players are scored on how well their band maintains its rhythm and halts for obstacles that could otherwise throw the procession into disarray. Major Minor's musical menagerie plays more than 20 classic marching band songs that Masaya Matsuura's team has composed into original medleys for the game's variety of colorful environments. A unique Drill Mode also lets aspiring leaders dazzle the crowd with baton-twirling displays and a range of motions to match cheerleader commands. Featuring single player as well as cooperative and competitive multiplayer modes, Major Minor's Majestic March offers an extravaganza of music and color that's as fun to watch as it is to play!
Major Minor's Majestic March for Wii™ is rated E for Everyone and is now available in stores at a suggested retail price of $39.99.
