At GDC over a decade ago, Elite Beat Agents creator Keiichi Yano mentioned that he pitched an action game to Nintendo.

Yano thought it would be interesting to have a platformer in which the music synced to your movements.

Yano also told Liam Robertson during an interview that he made a number of other pitches to Nintendo. However, it’s unclear what exactly these were.

Here’s the full interview clip with Yano:
