Masaya Matsuura’s WINtA

Filed under: News Feed — Tags: , , , , — Jamie Love @ 2:42 pm

Non-profit publisher OneBigGame has announced a new project in their initiative to work with leading game designers in raising funds for charity, revealing that rhythm master and NanaOn-Sha President Masaya Matsuura will be donating his time, along with Triangle Studios, to create a new music rhythm game for the iPhone / iPod touch, titled WINtA.

As for what to expect from WINtA, the early word is that the title will combine pattern recognition and the tendency to tap along with the rhythm, while also going beyond the “highway of colored symbols” we’ve been living on since the rhythm genre began.

Matsuura’s own words offered a bit more insight,

“…further down the line WINtA will also very much involve music artists, VJs and gamers around the world in this project. I can’t wait to see the creative vision that we have for WINtA finally become a reality later this year.”

So to make a long story short, I have no idea what to expect at the moment. Anything is possible when NanaOn-Sha is involved, so stay tuned.


  1. Speaking of NanaOn-Sha… has anyone played that Wii Marching Band game they made? It’s like less than $12 I think on Amazon…

  2. Sure did! Though I’d have to reach into the way way back machine to find my review – Probably wasn’t a very good review anyway, to sum it up now, it’s got a very kid friendly atmosphere like a storybook, but sometimes I still get into the marching – it just takes a lot of effort and I get lazy fast :/

    But best Marching Band game on the Wii ever? Certainly ;)
