Good interview >.>

Sort of off topic but im really tired of people saying the music game genre is dead though lol. It's absolutely not. There's lots of dancing games, weekly Rock Band DLC, heck - a new Rock Band game JUST came out 2 weeks ago and it's insanely good. Not to mention Rock Band World just recently launched. Then there's RockSmith, which is everywhere, and also just got a giant "Bass" add-on, as well as weekly DLC.

Its not like there's no money for music game developers. I think PaRappa would do just fine, personally...

Gamefreak just released harmoknight on the eshop in Japan, which is a rhythmic side scrolling adventure game.

The genre is small, but not non existent... I suppose.^_^

Don't forget Theatrhythm!

The music genre will come back in full force some day.

For now, I'm content to play rhythm platform games. Beat Trip Runner is one of my favorite games in the last 5 years. I got to play Runner 2 at PAX and it was awesome. Then there's the rhythm levels in Rayman Legends. Can't wait for that :-D
