There was a shamisen game in Japan in 2002

It didn't have a strum bar like those pictures because a shamisen is played with a special paddle where you hit the strings, not pluck them. You can see the paddles in the picture below

At least one of the Viewtiful Joe games contains a rockin' shamisen track. It sounds very similar to parts of that Yoshida Bros track.

That song could still work on rock band -- the vocalist could just do some mean tambourine playing :D

Package this peripheral with the traditional garb clothing, and I'm sold.
