Despite Dave's troubling experience with Major Minor's Majestic March, we remain hopeful for the music game, which is scheduled for release March 24th (the perfect month for this game). We refuse to believe that the team of developer Nana-On-Sha and illustrator Rodney Alan Greenblat can produce any...

Square Enix has picked up Majesco's Major Minor's Majestic March for Japan, releasing the title on April 23rd. They've launched a site for the game to get some buzz going, but it's kind of bare bones at the moment. You'll find little there, save for some character descriptions and an explanation o...

Nintendo's carrier pigeon just landed on our windowsill with a complete list of Wii releases for Q1 2009.

We won't even front -- this rhythm game's cartoonish design isn't for everyone, and there are a lot of you who won't appreciate the "Dreamcast-era" graphics, either -- but we still think Major Minor's Majestic March looks like the cat's pajamas. If you need any proof, there are actually saxophone-p...

Newsweek's N'Gai Croal interviewed Masaya Matsuura about his upcoming Wii music game Major Minor's Majestic March, allowing us to learn a bit more about the game. Apparently, the tempo of the songs will actually change in real time with your waggling, and not always to the best effect. "We have a ...

When we first heard about Major Minor's Majestic March, we, much like you, were confused. We had never asked for a game about a marching band, we hadn't ever really thought about it. But, as the game was developed by Parappa masterminds Masaya Matsuura and Rodney Greenblat, we had to, in accordanc...

Yeah, yeah, we're intrigued by the possibilities of Wii Music but, like you, we're disappointed by that game's apparent lack of marching! Someone at Majesco apparently feels the same way, because the company today announced Major Minor's Majestic March for the Wii. Featuring the talents of Parappa...
