Osu! Tatakae! Ouenden sequel information trickles out
Keiichi Yano, VP of development for iNiS Corporation showed off some concept art, a few screenshots, and offered morsels of information about Moero! Nekketsu Rhythm Damashi. Prospects of the Japanese sequel to Osu! Tatakae! Ouendan had recently trickled out of Nintendo.
Yano said that the title, due this year, will include new features and characters, including rival Ouendan. He also confirmed that those characters will be playable, saying, "From the screenshots, you can gather that you will be playing them. You're not only playing them. That's all I can tell you."
Yano also said, "I can't tell you," when asked about plans to use the DS microphone and WiFi in the new version.
Yano didn't confirm an American version of the new game, saying, "I know it's going to be an import for most of you. If you do get a chance, please try to check it out."
Making no Wii announcements, Yano confirmed that that platform is an interest. "Yes, we are talking to Nintendo [about the Wii], and hopefully we'll have something to talk about soon."
