Did you know it wasn't Nintendo who approached Tsunku, but Tsunku who approached Nintendo? Tsunku is the main composer for Rhythm Heaven songs along Masami Yone, with vocals by TNX artists including Canary Club, The Possible, and Tsunku himself (credited as Occhama). These vocals were re-recorded in English for the Western version by other vocalists (most notably Ayaka Nagate, a former member of the Tsunku-produced Coconuts Musume), as were some of the voice cue.
