Majesco has announced that developer Nanaon-Sha (Parappa, Vib Ribbon) and Parappa character designer Rodney Alan Greenblat have teamed to develop a new Wii exclusive music game for release in late 2008.

Most recently, Nanaon-sha has been involved in creating the Tamagotchi Corner Shop series with Namco Bandai for the DS, and its original rhythm game Rhythmica for Apple's iPod.

The new partnership marks the first time Nanaon-Sha head Masaya Matsuura (pictured) and New York-based studio artist and illustrator Greenblat have partnered since the Parappa and UmJammer Lammy series, widely credited as creating the rhythm game genre as a whole.

Said Greenblat of the collaboration, “Matsuura-san and I share similar artistic perspectives so I welcomed the opportunity to re-team with him and NanaOn-Sha to produce a one-of-a-kind music game designed from the ground up for the Wii system."

Majesco CEO Jesse Sutton added, “Masaya Matsuura and Rodney Alan Greenblat are industry visionaries whose legacy was built on crafting groundbreaking, genre-defining entertainment experiences that everyone can enjoy. We are incredibly excited to be working with talent of this caliber and believe our game shares the same broad mass market appeal as successful music-based products like Activision’s Guitar Hero and MTV’s Rock Band.”
