After three successful beat tapping games with wacky stories, iNiS went on to spearhead Microsoft’s karaoke game Lips. But, it appears iNiS has something new in the pipeline. The developer is meeting with Western publishers behind closed doors. We know of two publishers that have a meeting with the rhythm game developer.
Nintendo picked up Ouendan after Keiichi Yano, CEO, showed Nintendo a flash based prototype. Before that, Koei published the quirky boy meets girl, but turns into rock star game Gitaroo Man for PlayStation 2. Way back at GDC in 2007, Yano mentioned they were developing a game for Wii. iNiS hasn’t said anything about the title since.
iNiS, whatever game you’re working on we’re cheering you on!
