The Def Jam series lets gamers step into the shoes of Method Man. Guitar Hero asks players to rock like Hendrix. And by year's end, those looking to channel their inner John Philip Sousa will finally get the chance to do so on the Nintendo Wii.

Majesco Entertainment today took the wraps off its mystery project from the creators of PaRappa the Rapper, and it is Major Minor's Majestic March. The game is the brainchild of designer Masaya Matsuura and artist Rodney Alan Greenblat, and is being developed by Matsuura's NanaOn-Sha studio.

Taking on the role of Major Minor, gamers will become a virtual bandleader, using the Wii Remote as a baton to keep tempo with more than 25 remixed international marching band songs. On their quests to conduct the perfect parade, players will pack the procession with up to 15 different instruments. It might not be an easy task, as gamers will also have to negotiate an array of events that threaten to unravel the meticulously metered march.

Major Minor's Majestic March is expected to launch during the 2008 holiday season.
