What is it about monkeys and video games?

This one may have got lost in the recent maelstrom of financial reports and Kirby sightings, but a new DSiWare game featuring monkeys playing instruments deserves your full attention.

Titled Make and Sing: Monkey Band, it's a pseudo-music creation game that writes songs for you based on certain themes and musical styles. If you've always dreamt of having a band of super simians sing your soulful compositions, that seems like a very bizarre dream.

The game's just been released in Japan, though sadly there's no confirmed release in the West and it's possible this is just too odd to see the light of day in the West, but raise your voice if you want to see this game available where you are. If you're not sure, the super-cute video below may just convince you.
