Tetsuya Mizuguchi makes a music video for PSP sequel
Legendary video games designer collaborates with new music group, Genki Rockets, for Lumines II
With their love of in-game cut scenes and poor dialogue, games developers have for years been accused of wanting to be Hollywood movie directors. But now veteran designer Tetsuya Mizuguchi has added pop video producer to the wish list.
His new music video, Heavenly Star, which you can watch below, will naturally also be available as a background in his upcoming PSP game, Lumines II.
The warbling electronic song is performed by Genki Rockets, a new music group that works exclusively with Mizuguchi's Q Entertainment studio.
"While most of my creative energy has been devoted to video games, because music plays such an important role in them, it seemed ideal to create an original music video," Mizuguchi-san said, doubtless before grabbing his water bottle and heading to the nearest party.
Lumines II is out in late November. We interviewed Mizuguchi about the game back in May.
