I have and will continue to have a place in my heart for Nintendo. In fact, my first console was a Super Nintendo. The video game market has changed drastically since the early '90s and it seems like what once was platinum is more so along the lines of silver now. Nintendo has always been...

Wii Music Heading to Wii U?

Posted on Friday, May 23 @ 14:00:00 Eastern by


A patent filed by Nintendo with the United States describes a new Nintendo game that may or may not be Wii Music U, described in the patent as "sound is output from a first loudspeaker in synchronization with the first display image displayed on the first display apparatus."

What the hell?

Neogaf user Rösti discovered the patent and shared it on the popular video game message boards, but the description provides a better sense of how ​Rösti is drawing the connection between this patent and Wii Music.

[0003] Conventionally, there is a game apparatus that outputs the sound of performing one composition as an ensemble using a plurality of instruments. In the game apparatus, a user selects a part to be assigned to the user themselves. When the selection of the assigned part is completed, the ensemble is started. Then, the user can participate in the ensemble by performing an input operation based on the assigned part.

[0004] The game apparatus, however, can merely provide the audio output of the composition performed as an ensemble from, for example, a pair of loudspeakers provided in a monitor. Thus, even a composition performed as an ensemble may lack variety, as compared to other types of sound outputs.

[0005] Therefore, it is an object of an exemplary embodiment to provide a storage medium having stored therein an information processing program capable of a wide variety of sound outputs, and an information processing apparatus, an information processing system, and an information processing method that are capable of a wide variety of sound outputs.

And if that doesn't do it for you, here's an image attached to the patent application:



Kinda seems like we're getting Wii Music U at this year's E3. That was not one of our predictions because I don't think a lot of Nintendo gamers particularly want Wii Music U, but I can't turn away new software for Nintendo's home console.

I love the Wii U platform dearly, especially as the company hits its stride with Mario Kart 8 and the upcoming Super Smash Bros. Wii U, but I hope this title doesn't repeat the unfortunate E3 reveal of Wii Music. Thankfully, the company won't have a press conference this year, so any silly antics will be conducted in a prepared Nintendo Direct video.
