You may know the name Tak Hirai. He’s the main programmer behind Space Channel 5 and Shenmue, which earns him some serious kudos.
These days he’s working on a new rhythm game for Vita, called Orgarhythm. According to Eurogamer the game will be an ambitious and complex blend of the music and strategy genres, though details beyond that are thin on the ground. The game will have multiplayer components, though, including co-op.
With use of touch screen and the like, this could be fun.
