It may have failed to live up to expectations both critically and commercially, but that hasn't stopped Shigeru Miyamoto from insisting his Wii Music still has a future, and even hinting there may be a 'Wii Music Plus' on the cards.
Speaking to Official Nintendo Magazine (full interview to be published in issue 50), Miyamoto said: "[Wii Music] was a really unique game, and even today, we are receiving several different offers from people in the field of music education... I think it still has great potential."
But more likely to perk the ears of creative Wii musician types, he went onto reveal the game could receive some "developments" for the "future"...
"Unfortunately, we don't have any news we can talk about at the moment," he said, coyly. "But like Wii Fit Plus, it's not really a sequel to the original Wii Fit - but we have added some features to improve the overall experience. It's a kind of an enhanced version."
So a vastly improved Wii Music not too far in the distance? It'd be a bit like Hear'Say reforming and being really, really good. (Without sounding too harsh).

Wii Music was the reason I bought the Wii. The game blew me away on E3 2006, and I just had to have it. Unfortunately, after all the bad press the game got in 2008 from the enthusiast journalists, I never got around to buying it.
This makes me very excited.
