Majesco has officially unveiled Major Minor's Majestic March. the first Wii title from PaRappa the Rapper developer NanaOn-Sha.

You're put in the boots of Major Minor, who has a special baton to conduct a marching band through the streets of eight whimsical locations.

That baton is controlled by waving the Wii remote. You need to keep tempo by waving your arms around so you can attract more band members and play better songs. If you are rubbish, your band will fall apart.

There are around 15 different instruments to collect like flutes and drums, and you can bang out around 30 popular tunes. Now it says popular here, but all we used to think when they crashed past our window was can we get away with dropping heavy things like plant pots on them please.

Still, PaRappa papa Masaya Matsuura and artist Rodney Greenblat are at the helm. And Major Minor offers variations on band make-up and a spot of baton twirling during intermissions to keep you interested.

Major Minor's Majestic March is due out in Europe early next year.
