Sweet Piano Case with New Nodame Cantabile

DS gets latest adaptation of musical manga early next year.


DS is getting a new adaptation of the music-themed Nodame Cantabile manga from Namco Bandai. Nodame Cantabile: Fun Music Time is set for release on February 18 at ¥5,229.

This latest take on the series promises six modes of play: Concert Hall, Quiz Cafe, Music Salon, My Room, Change Box, and Nodamegami no Izumi. Namco Bandai has detailed three:

Concert Hall

The main mode of play. In this mode, you use the stylus to perform 30 classic songs. You can select to have either Nodame or Chiaki as your in-game counterpart during these play sessions. Both have been recreated as 3D models. You'll be able to change their clothing and even select a stage type.

Music Salon

A music player mode. You can select to listen to 190 songs while viewing major scenes from the manga. The game also includes facts about the music and its composer.

My Room

This mode lets you create your very own album which can be listened to using the game's sound player. Your album can hold up to 30 songs, selected form the 190 available in the Music Salon mode. You can save up to 10 such albums with a name and jacket of your choosing.

Those who pre-order Nodame Cantabile will get a sweet piano-themed case. This case is capable of holding your Memory Cards and other small items.
