Japanese videogame music maestro, Yuzo Koshiro (ActRaiser, Streets of Rage & Ys), in conjunction with his development studio Ancient, have created a 2D 8-bit styled Famicom action RPG for XBOX LIVE Indie Games, called "Mamotte Knight" - "Protect Me Knight"
In Mamotte Knight, players select a knight from one of four jobs and make use of barricades to protect the princess from monsters. As you defeat the attacking beasts, you'll earn "love points" from the princess which can be used to upgrade your barricades and increase your character's skills. According to the games website, the game will support four player simultaneous play.
In line with the games visuals, the music in Mamotte Knight also has a distinct 8-bit flavour. Koshiro-san has handled the games music himself.
The game launches in Japan later the Spring, I for one am hoping this comes to West, and to WiiWare also, if the conversion of code is no major hurdle.
Ancient has a PC demo of Mamotte Knight available at the game's official site, via it's download section, however, you'll need to have the XNA 3.1 Runtime Library installed on your PC in order to run it.
The games official site has video of the game in action:
