Tak Hirai's Orgarhythm to be released this summer via publisher Acquire.
While gamers are not too familiar with the name Tak Hirai, they may be acquainted with the games he programmed back at Sega: the Shenmue and Space Channel 5 series. The programmer's new development company, Neilo, established back in 2010, recently announced that it will be releasing a PS Vita title called Orgarhythm.
According to a recent issue of Famitsu (via Andriasang), the rhythm title will be published by Acquire. The game is a mixture of strategy and music, where players control a god who can guide minions. As players defeat enemies and issue commands, the game's music progresses from a bass track to a full-blown instrumental piece.
Gamers can also affect upcoming stages and enemy AI depending on how well they perform. The game will have cooperative and competitive multiplayer modes via ad hoc.
