Publisher Majesco has announced new details on the previously reported Wii exclusive collaboration between original Parappa The Rapper developers NanaOnSha and artist Rodney Alan Greenblat, marching band rhythm game Major Minor's Majestic March.

Majesco says Major Minor "turns the Wii Remote into a 'special' baton," which the titular Major uses to "keep tempo, recruit new band members and pick up valuable items."

The publisher promises eight whimsical locations with "various hair-raising events" and 25 popular marching band songs, as players create "the most impressive parade ever."

The title will feature 15 instruments including brass, woodwinds, and percussion, and will be scored "on how well their band maintains its rhythm and manages obstacles that could otherwise throw the procession into disarray."

Said Majesco executive VP Gui Karyo, "There's something magical about marching bands that truly captures the imagination. The concept of leading a virtual band that's reliant on your musicianship is a perfect fit for the interactive capabilities of Wii,. The combined musical and artistic superiority of Matsuura and Greenblat make them a natural choice to deliver this innovative title exclusively to the Wii audience."
