Do you LOVE 8-bit music from classic video games? Prpeare to create your own! KEYTARI: 8-bit Music Maker will transform your Wii U GamePad into an 8-bit jamming machine!

Simply touch the keys on your Wii U GamePad and YOU are playing KEYTARI. KEYTARI was designed to be easy to pick up and play. But to truly master KEYTARI, practice and experimentation will take you far – just like with a traditional musical instrument.

Wield powerful lead instruments such as SineSquare, MultiPlex, and PolySaw. Power-up a Background Beat, Underworld Bass, Sustain, and the Drum Kit to take your 8-bit style jamming to the next level!
