Nintendo’s New Music Game Is Developed By Intelligent Systems


Nintendo’s new Jam With the Band game for Nintendo 3DS (or Daigasso Band Bros. as the series is called in Japan), is being developed by Fire Emblem developer Intelligent Systems.


Today, Nintendo erected a teaser website for Band Bros. P, which lists Intelligent Systems as its developer and also mentions that the game is “powered by Vocaloid,” the synthesizer software used to compose Vocaloid music for virtual pop-stars like Hatsune Miku.


We’ve actually detailed how exactly the Vocaloid software is involved in the past. Band Bros. P can use the Nintendo 3DS camera to take a picture, and the microphone to record your voice, then and produce an in-game Vocaloid for you.


We’ll have more information on Band Bros. P as it is made available. On that note, it certainly looks like Intelligent Systems are keeping busy. In the last two years, they’ve been involved with Fire Emblem: Awakening, Pushmo, Crashmo, Paper Mario: Sticker Star and Game & Wario.
