image Nodame Cantabile fans have something to look forward to next year. Namco Bandai will release a brand new Nodame Cantabile game for the Nintendo DS in 2010.


Two years ago, there was a Nodame Cantabile game for the Nintendo DS and it was like Elite Beat Agents with classical music. No word on what the sequel’s going to be like since it’s barely been announced. The game appears on Namco Bandai’s release calendar with a 2010 target.


The picture is from a promotional video for the last Nodame Cantabile game, Nodame Cantabile: Dream Symphony, which was also published by Namco Bandai two years.

  • Good news! I remember picking up the first DS one really cheap at Play-Asia. It was really great!

    • Wait, the last game was exactly like Ouendan? I love the heck out of that series. Is it the same or did it just have mini-games that were like it? I love hearing little things like this that I somehow miss. Nice side-note Spencer.

      • The main part was pretty much like Ouendan with classical music. There were mini-games as well. The one I remember best was one that mimicked the Taiko Drum Master games.

        • Time to go find a good deal on that game. Thanks.

    i played the first one, and it was a lot of fun. Great anime/manga/drama as well. Looking forward to this.

  • Great, i love this series :D

  • Pretty fun game! Not as strong as EBA or Ouendan, but fan nevertheless. Too bad I need to work more on my japanese though…

      I agree, it was a fun game but more suitable for Nodame fans, I got it for full price though (later it was so cheap..) How was the Wii Nodame game anyway, has anybody tried it or was it as crappy as Wii Music? I’m still reading the new manga, and a new anime movie would come out next year.

      • Oh man I can’t explain how freaking excited I am for the new drama movies coming out too!

        Also I’ve finished the manga already… and yes, there WILL be a special chapter coming out later this year…

        • Aoshi00

          Me too, I actually prefer Tamaki Hiroshi’s Chiaki (he’s much more fun than Seki Tomokazu) and Ueno Juri’s Nodame since I watched the drama first and read the manga later. The manga hasn’t ended yet has it, vol. 23 is coming out soon right? I’m glad more anime would be made to finish the series.

          • Same! I feel like the drama, it has more energy… and a larger budget. Also I think Tamaki Hiroshi is hot.

            The manga HAS officially ended in Japan. However the ending was pretty shitty I have to be honest (as it ends in the middle of nowhere without concluding anything). That’s why there are special mangas chapter(s) that are going to be released. So it’s over officially, but there is still more stuff coming out.

        • Am I not the only one that watched the Live Action of this show? Good to know >,< Not to mention, when HD TV's were becoming highly accessible, I saw some of this anime in HD. First anime I saw in HD and boy is HD art great looking.

  • ShinNoKami

    I should really give this game a look! I was a little hesitant because no matter how much you like a series, ya can’t really enjoy the game if it’s too much graphic novel…
