Bunraku and Rock Band: Japan

first off, according to , Bunraku is set to come out 2011. So once again, we are on a waiting game. (I did not see if there were speculations on WHEN in 2011... IE earlier in the year or later.) So I'll keep you posted.


by now at least 90% of you have heard of the game: Rock band.

There's Rock Band, Rock Band 2, Rock Band: The Beatles, Rock Band: Country, Rock Band: Metal, Rock Band: AC/DC, Legos Rock Band... So on.

Well a few years ago, according to "The Escapist" blog... Creators of the game, Harmonix, was considering creating a Rock Band: Japan featuring J-Rock artists like L`arc~en~ciel

Now it appears that is not going to happen.

however... they are considering coming out with a Japanese package via DLC (downloadable content)

the artists they are considering... (none of this is set in stone. This is still an idea being played with...)

the GazettE
Dir en grey
An Café
Versailles ~Philharmonic Quintent~

So lets keep our fingers crossed that this does happen. Maybe a few excited letters to Harmonix to encourage them to go forward with the DLC project could be done. Let them know if you are a Rock Band player this would rock in your eyes, and if you're not a Rock Band player, this could turn you into one which would bring them new customers.

Knowing the luck of all of us who are waiting on Bunraku coming out, we'll have to wait till late 2011... soooo unfair :P

But I'm sure it'll be worth the wait, as anything with Gackt is always worth waiting for :D

Next thing you know, they'll have us wait another year.

I think it would be more profitable to have Guitar Hero: Japan. Since, it would be very difficult for many Americans to pronounce all the Japanese lyrics on Rock Band Vocals. XD
