One of Nintendo's less successful IPs could very well be on track for a Wii U resurrection.
Patents unearthed by NeoGAF look very much like Wii U Music and show how a player can assume the role of several musicians within a composition.
Specifically the documents outline a method via which the sound of a user's current instrument is outputted via the GamePad and the rest of the track is heard through the TV.
While the game's original E3 2006 unveiling at the hands of development legend Shigeru Miyamoto was memorable, the title itself failed to resonate with either critics or gamers and has gone on the become best known as one of Miyamoto's rare misses.
Can a sequel on Wii U, even if technically accomplished, do anything to reverse that?
