Sure, the Japanese developer has long shown itself adept at marrying rhythm and play, having made idiosyncratic genre favourites such as Guitaroo Man and Osu! Tatakae! Ouendan.
But for all the commercial success of Elite Beat Agents, its westernized reframing of Ouendan, we wouldn't immediately associate Inis with Microsoft's need to extend the appeal of 360, and have its game square up to the likes of SingStar and Rock Band."
