Chopin no Yume (Chopin's Dream) is a brand new role playing game developed for the Xbox 360. The game takes place in a dream world where where those with incurable illnesses possess magical powers. Chopin explores this world with a young girl named Polka and a boy named Allegretto. Considering the identity of the key character, it comes as no surprise that music has a special emphasis. Russian pianist Stanislav Bunin performs the Chopin. Description and links to screenshots here.
