Shenmue’s main programmer announces new game, Orgarhythm

The main programmer for Shenmue, Tak Hirai, has announced the first title from his development studio, Neilo. Revealed in Famitsu, Orgarhythm, will be both a music and a strategy game and released this summer in Japan by Acquire.

Hirai has stated that the game is very different from what people are used to and even his own studio had trouble grasping it at first. From the trailer above I can see why, but I kind of get a Pikmin with some rhythm action thrown in from the gameplay bits. I definitely trust Hirai on this one as the man worked on Space Channel 5 as well so he should know a thing or two about good rhythm games.
