Music games a focus for Konami
Having lost the lead in music gaming to the innovators at Harmonix and RedOctane, Konami is hoping to reclaim the top spot with a slew of new titles over the course of the next 12 months.
In the company's most recent financial report is a pledge to reinvigorate the waning Dance Dance Revolution series, while building up other franchises.
"We will focus our efforts on the music game Dance Dance Revolution series which remains a perennial favourite and other music games, which is a genre that Konami exhibits particular strength in."
Given the intense negativity surrounding Rock Revolution, Konami's move to push more music games seems odd. Combine that with a decline in the overall genre as recognised by competing developers and Konami's efforts to double down on music games is particularly unusual.
